Frequent cruisers end up in Civitavecchia not wanting to revisit Rome on a tour or on their own, but thinking that there's nothing in this port city worth getting off the ship for. Wrong. Sure, there are no world class museums or ancient sites to visit, but if you hang a left around McDonald's across the street from the port's gate and walk a couple of short blocks, you'll find a vibrant market area to stroll around in. You may find some bargains, and you'll certainly get a feel for such markets, since this is set up as much for the locals as for tourists. Have a walk-around, pick up a couple of bottles of wine to take back to the ship, and maybe find that perfect gift for someone back home.
