Civitavecchia Things to Do: 29 reviews and 78 photos
Civitavecchia is a busy port, attracting up to a dozen cruise ships and numerous ferries each day in summer, so there is a constant stream of ship passengers heading right out of the port, along the seafront to the train station for the first train out to Rome. Go against the herd and turn left instead, walk between the old city walls and the harbour, and eventually you'll come to a gate. A sparkling white gate, in fact, which has probably had a bit of work done...but it is still quite a sight. This is the Livorno gate, or Porta Livorno, and nowadays doesn't really serve much of a purpose...the steps take you to a pizzeria in a modern buidling. The old city must have shrunk in the last century, probably to do with the heavy bombing in the WWII, and you now have to walk inland a couple of blocks before anything else historical reveals itself.
