The sound of ringing bells led us here on a Monday morning stroll before our cruise departure. This Baroque style church, dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi, has a long and interesting history. It was built on the remains of a small Franciscan church in...More

Sunday morning before our cruise, I took a city and promenade walk. Sunny with clear skies and calm waters. Church bells were pealing, people attended mass (older faithful people). This building survived the damages of world War II. Step away to get a better view...More

This is a nice church which is just a short walk from the Cruise Ships. It is really dark inside as there are no lights inside.

Apart from a cruise port for Rome, I knew nothing of this city. The cathedral is just part of a hidden jem of a city. The cathedral and 'old town' area are worth a visit as is the beach area.

A short walk from the cruise ship staging area brings you to the beautiful cathedral in Civitavecchia. Mass was occurring when when I first walked by so came later for a more extensive visit. Typical Italian cathedral.

Within walking distance of the port and worth a quick stop. I did not really like the atmosphere in this Cathedral. Not as peaceful as most religious places and crowded with tourists.

If walking into town from the ships shuttle stop you will walk past this lovely church. The building is very impressive.
