But, we'll make it easier for you with some of the best excursions possible that will allow you to explore exactly what you wish to experience.
Your port town, Civitavecchia is 50 miles northwest of Rome and is the gateway for all of its famous sites. Most people who arrive in Civitavecchia are merely passing through, or visiting for the day, however, it will give you just a taste of what's to come since right at the front of the port area are the remains of Forte Michelangelo. The fort was built in 1535, Michelangelo himself designed the upper eight-sided tower. Also within walking distance from the forte is the Vanvitelli Fountain from 1740, an Archaeological museum, a cathedral that dates back to 1610 and the Baths of Traiano dating back to 400 AD.
