Civitavecchia is a town and comune of the province of Rome in the central Italian region of Latium. A sea port on the Tyrrhenian Sea, it is located 80 kilometers west-north-west of Rome, across the Mignone river. The harbor is formed by two moles and a breakwater, on which is a lighthouse.
Civitavecchia was almost completely destroyed in the second world war, but it has been rebuilt since. Certainly the recent constructions have made the urban layout rather difficult to appreciate, but if you take your time there is plenty to discover.
The most important sights are the sixteenth-century Fort Michelangelo, built to the order of Pope Julius II Della Rovere. Begun by Bramante and continued by Sangallo the Younger and by Giuliano Leno, it was completed by Michelangelo, who was responsible for the imposing keep, during the papacy of Paul III. In regards to its power and grandeur, it was one of the greatest of the period. Archaeological findings have been discovered inside the fort, including the remains of a Roman villa and the crypt of St. Fermina, who was persecuted by Diocletian and is a favourite saint of the people of Civitavecchia.
Around the fort lies the port itself, partly following the layout of the one of Trajan’s time. Here you find the old city walls built under Pope Urban VIII, as well as a fountain designed by Vanvitelli.
