Located in the Lazio region of central Italy, the town of Civitavecchia can be found in the province of Rome and has a seaport on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is around 80 km to the north west of Rome. Located in an 18th century building that once belonged to Clemente XIII, visitors will find the Archaeological Museum of Civitavecchia. The building was originally constructed to house the headquarters of the papal garrison. In the museum visitors will see archaeological findings from the town of Centumcellae (the ancient name for Civitavecchia) and from the town's immediate surroundings. In the town's main square visitors will also find another interesting attraction. The Cathedral dedicated to San Francis of Assisi was built over a church that already existed and which the Franciscan fathers had built upon concession by Pope Paul V in 1610.
The town's harbour, formed by two piers and a breakwater, upon which stands a lighthouse, accommodates ferries to destinations including Sicily, Sardinia and Tunisia.
The Italian town of Arbatax is located on the island of Sicily and is surrounded by a magnificent range of mountains that are the island's highest. Located adjacent to the town's harbour is a 17th century tower and out to sea it is possible to observe the outline of the famous porphyritic reef known as "red rocks' from Arbatax. In the southern part of the headland, around 3 km from the town itself, is the S. Gemiliano Tower. These sites along with many others located inland from the town provide many opportunities for visitors to explore the town and surrounding area.
It is thought the town's name is derived from the Arabic for "14th tower" which may be a reference to the watchtower that was constructed by the Spanish to protect the town from attack.
From Arbatax port, ferry services connect to the Italian mainland via the ferry ports of Civitavecchia, Genoa, Fiumicino, Olbia and Cagliari.
