To coincide with cruise season
the train will run from April 1st until December 14th. Only seven hundred and twenty seats will be sold per train including reserved seats for each passenger. Children up to twelve years of age will travel free if traveling with an adult. Passengers will be allowed to bring large suitcases onto the train. The train company will also be establishing information booths at both Civitavecchia and the Roman station of St. Peter’s. This station is near it’s namesake St. Peter’s Basilica allowing passengers to create an easy visit from the cruise ship to the vatican. Expect a ten or fifteen minute walk even if the press release claims five.
In addition to St. Peter’s station
the train will stop at Roma Ostiense. At Ostiense you will be able to take the metro into the city centre.
