Disabled People and Cruise from the Port of Civitavecchia
The passion for the sea and for travel certainly cannot be stopped by a wheelchair, or rather: not anymore.
The harbor of Civitavecchia has been recognized since ancient times as Rome’s port. The port has represented for many centuries the fulcrum of exchanges and contacts between the peoples of the ancient “Mare Nostrum”. It is a very important port, as far as tourism in Italy and beyond is concerned, in fact Civitavecchia is among the top ten in the world for cruise passengers (2.4 million per year) and first, on equal merit, with Barcelona (2.5 million) in Europe.
For some years now, almost all cruise ships have been equipped to offer an optimal service to tourists in wheelchairs, breaking down architectural barriers and allowing the creation of a new sector of customers. The choice to adapt your spaces to customers with reduced mobility is not only suitable for disabled people, but also for elderly people with reduced mobility.
Inside cruise ships it is possible to find almost every desired service, for all those who wish to enjoy a carefree holiday. The same goes for customers with disabilities: cabins, toilets, stairs, everything is made without barriers, promoting full and total relaxation.
Visiting multiple cities or even multiple states, or choosing to stay in the spa to be pampered, the cruise can meet both needs and this is why more and more people are choosing this means of travel.
While cruise ships are equipped to offer a stress-free experience for disabled people, reaching the port of Civitavecchia is still a bit complicated for travelers in wheelchairs if they want to use public transport or taxis. In particular, reaching Fiumicino Fco airport or leaving from this airport for the port of Civitavecchia is inconvenient and difficult as there is no direct rail connection between Fiumicino airport and the port of Civitavecchia and the same goes for the Ciampino airport, without considering that public transport does not have a high level of accessibility to make the trip stress-free. Public taxis equipped to transport disabled people are very few and impossible to find, the best solution is to rely on private taxi companies specialized in transporting disabled people (often cheaper than public taxis) which will certainly make the transfer to and from the Port easier and less stressful. One of the best companies that carries out transfers with accessible minivans that can accommodate up to 5 people + a disabled person in a wheelchair is transfers-rome-civitavecchia.com, it has excellent reviews and good prices.
This chauffeur-driven rental company also provides specialized excursions, ensuring individuals with walking difficulties, wheelchair users, electric scooter riders, and all guests seeking to explore the finest of Rome can do so comfortably through tailored, hassle-free tours. The excursion leaves from the Port of Civitavecchia in the morning around 9:00 to arrive in Rome around 10:30 with a 5-hour visit to Rome more or less and return to Civitavecchia in the afternoon.
