Help Civitavecchia to Barcelona Spain

We are ending our cruise in Civitavecchia. Since we have been in many places in Italy, we thought Barcelona may be a good post cruise destination.

Can somebody help in providing insights in how to get to Barcelona?

As I understand, we can take the train back to Rome then take a flight out to barcelona? any airlines recommendations?

how about a train? we wouldn't mind just hopping on a train from civitavecchia all the way to barcelona? how long would it take? and what's the best way to do it? any websites that would help would be great!

thank you!

There are at least three trains an hour from Civitavecchia to Rome Termini (the main station). If you want to get from Civitavecchia to FCO airport, you change trains at Trastavere instead of going all the way into Rome. However, as cruises can be delayed, you might do better to have a night in Rome before flying out. I know that Vueling flies this route - www.vueling.com - and for other see www.kayak.com . However, beware that European cut-price airlines have small baggage allowances and high excess baggage charges.

A train from Civitavecchia to Barcelona would take the best part of two days and require many changes of train.

Depending on when you are travelling, you might be able to take a 19-hour trip by ferry. See www.grimaldi-lines.com/england/index.jsp…

Thank you for the reply. It seems taking the train and flying is our best choice.

Easiest train journey with 'only' four changes takes 25 hours from Civitavecchia to Barcelona (not via Rome) according to reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en?

Both plane and ferry are better.
