Will bus to Tarquinia be operating on May 1 (holiday)?

If there are any resident experts around, I would appreciate knowing whether the bus that you catch very near the cruise port, and which takes you to Tarquinia, would operate on a holiday, specifically May 1?

Yes, but very infrequently compared to normal weekdays. See the 'festivo' times accessed through here: http://www.cotralspa.it/scarica_orari_new.asp

There are also a few trains http://orario.trenitalia.com/ but Tarquinia station is half an hour's walk away from the centre.

I don't know what the taxi fare would be. Tarquinia is only around a 20 minute drive from Civitavecchia, but a cruise port and a national holiday do not make an auspicious combination for a reasonable fare.

Perilzia, thank you so much for your prompt reply. Will you please just verify that I have read the holiday schedule correctly? Seems to be the only buses that day from Civavecchia to Tarquinia area will leave at 9:10 AM and 10:35 AM, and the only bus back from Tarquinia back to Civitaveccia on May 1 will leave Tarquinia at 5:45 PM (17:45). Is that right?

thanks again!

Ellie

I would add a note of caution to what Perilizia has written: In my experience, May 1 is often the holiday on which *all* public transportation grinds to a complete and total halt.

Only 09.10 out that I can see. And 17.45 back.

If, given Zerlina's cynicism, the guy whose shift it is turns up to work.

Thanks for all the information. Given the limited schedule on May 1, the possibility unreliability of that one return, and the facts that shops will be closed, I think we will pass on this and do something else our day in port.
