Alternatives to Rome when in Civitavecchio

We are going to be in port in Civitavecchio for about 11 hours. We have been in Rome a number of times and would like to avoid the hours long commute and are looking for alternatives. I understand there isn't much to do in this port city. Are there other places worth exploring that are closer than Rome?

Well, what is the reply?

I may have about 5 hours before our cruise ship departs Civitavecchia.

I have also been Rome several times.

Are there restaurants close by, or, better still, areas that are nice to visit, like Portofino, or small towns?


B ob?

There is nothing particularly attractive near Civitavecchia, which is probably why there have been no responses.

Yoeman3rd: Please do not be silly. The OP was asking for alternatives, as should be obvious from the post. None of the people who provide information on TA is paid, and we are not at your beck and call.

You could visit the Etruscan town of Tarquinia, about 20/30 min by car from Civitavecchia..
