Civitavecchia is the port closest to Rome, but it is still over an hour into the city [sometimes considerably longer]. Since we were in Rome not long ago, we elected to make it an easy day. The ship is empty, so we washed some clothes and came into the port town, to access a high speed connection [wanted to down load some audible books, which would take forever on the ship's internet connection].
I must tell you, that we have been blessed with great weather after we left Venice. The high today will be in the low 80s and tomorrow in La Spezia [near Florence/ Pisa] the forecast is for the mid 70s!
Not much to see in town [the ladies had written off the shopping within 20 minutes].
All is well ... Take care ...
