Been to Rome three times now so what to do in Civitavecchia? What is the town like? And where does the shuttle drop you?

the shuttle drops at the dock gates.

I wandered round the town a few years ago. It has a pleasant shopping street, cathedral, open market and a museum or 2. Also a beach

For the last couple of years, the shuttle drop off point has been a bus station which leaves quite a long walk back to the area where the drop off used to be. As previously stated, there is a nice promenade and plenty of nice coffee shops but the walk to reach them is through less attractive areas but there are plenty of free wifi stops.
