Civitavecchia Palermo Termini Imerese Ferry reviews

  • "Pleasant and calm boat trip"

    It was hard to fins the correct ferry terminal because there were several and not clear signs. When onboard we got a nice welcoming from the cabin staff. Check in was very organised. The 4 berth inside cabin was normal sized and the bathroom was clean and neat.

  • "Short cut to Sicily"

    Our voyage on Splendid was a very pleasant experience and we would recommend this as an effective way of avoiding the long motorway journey South from Rome. Boarding was easy, just keep your eye on the signage as it is a busy quayside. On board the cabin was reasonably spacious. We used the restaurant in the evening, food was good. Our crossing (early May) was very quiet. Breakfast at self-service limited but met our needs. We would use this route again.

Civitavecchia Guide

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.

Palermo Termini Imerese Guide

The Italian town of Palermo Termini Imerese is located around 40 km to the east of the city of Palermo on the island of Sicily. The site of the town has been inhabited since prehistoric times and over the years the archaeological excavations have uncovered many artefacts. However, despite this the town's recorded history dates back to 409 BC when its more ancient neighbour, Himera, was completely destroyed by the Carthaginian army under the rule of Hannibal Mago.

Unfortunately, little of the town's ancient history remains with the exception of a few bits of Roman architecture and a hilltop fortress. The town's museum contains some interesting Arab period finds but apart from this there isn't a great deal in the town to see. However, the ancient town, and archaeological site, of Himera is close and is famous for the remains of the Temple of Victory which are located at the mouth of the Imera River, around 5 km to the east of Termini. Approximately 14 km to the south of Termini, and also worth a visit, is Caccamo Castle.

From the town's small port ferries depart to Civitavecchia on the Italian mainland.
