Ferry to Civitavecchia (Rome) and Barcelona

The Barcelona-Civitavecchia ferry connects two major European cities (Civitavecchia is located near the Italian capital Rome). So if you want to travel between Rome and Barcelona, this ferry might be a good choice! The ferry sails in 20 hours to Civitavecchia or Barcelona.

The ferry from Barcelona to Civitavecchia is a popular route that takes around 20 to 24 hours. Multiple ferry operators offer onboard amenities such as seating, cabins, restaurants, and entertainment. It's advisable to check schedules, book tickets in advance, and prices may vary depending on the operator and accommodation chosen. Upon arrival in Civitavecchia, it's easy to reach Rome by train for further exploration.

Although this ferry covers quite a distance, you can still buy tickets quite cheaply. A one-way ticket for one person does not cost much at all. For example, the cheapest ticket we could find was only €55. For this price, you will sleep in a (comfortable) Pullmann chair instead of a cabin.

A return trip with two people in a car during the busy summer period is, of course, more expensive. A reasonable estimate is that you will pay around €540. Then you also have a stay in a cabin.

Keep in mind that people book this boat way in advance. We see the cabins filling up months before departure. So don't wait too long to book if you want to travel on a certain date. You can easily find out availability and ticket prices by filling in the input fields below.
