Sailing to Rome

Watching a travel show tonight, I wondered if we could sail to Rome. So I grabbed Google Earth and it's an obvious, Yes! Now I can't find anything about it.

Re: Sailing to Rome

Check out Noonsite:

Fiumicino (Rome) —

The Fiumicino River isn't the cleanest area, basically an industrial area with some up-and-coming gentrification going on, but with really easy transit access to pretty much all the tourist attractions in Rome.

Re: Sailing to Rome

There is a large newer marina at Ostia or there are several smaller marinas on the mouth of the Tiber River.

From Ostia, there is a cheap train into Rome (it's part of the public transit system so it's like $1.50 each way). Takes about 45min.

While there don't miss Ostia Antica. This is Rome's original port and we think it's better than Pompie and not nearly as crowded.

Agree with the above -- we sailed in there last year and every other day took a train then subway into Rome and had a great time. And it is easy -

Re: Sailing to Rome

I recently visited a marina at Civitavecchia, Italy that was just a short commuter train ride from Rome. .... very nice.
