Civitavecchia Express: journey times and timetables

The new service will run as a pilot project from the 1st April until the 14th December 2019, with 4 daily journeys: 2 in the morning directed to Rome and 2 in the afternoon directed to Civitavecchia.

A service thought to satisfy the needs of many cruise travellers who wish to visit the Capital in one day, with timetables fit for their holidays according to the arrival and departure of cruise ships.

Journey times will be cut by 10/15 minutes allowing to get to Roma San Pietro in 35/40 minutes (instead of the current 50/55 minutes) and Roma Ostiense in 55 minutes (instead of the current 60/70 minutes).
