Civitavecchia, the port for Rome and one of Europe’s busiest cruise ports, is to get a brand new £18 million cruise terminal.
Construction on the 10,000 square metre building will begin in November 2016, with aims of being complete in 2018. Once built, the new terminal will be able to handle 4,500 passengers and 9,000 pieces of luggage.
The terminal, called 12 B North, is just one of two new developments for the port. Another smaller terminal will be built in the near future, although final plans have not yet been released.
