Cruise ship ports in Italy

Most of Italy can be accessed by cruising. Even major inland cities such as Rome and Florence are serviced by the nearby port towns of Civitavecchia and Livorno, respectively. From here, trains are available to get you to your destination.

In addition to the major ports mentioned above, cruise ships can also stop at Genoa – near the Cinque Terre, Bari – offering access to Italy’s south and Palermo – on the island of Sicily.
