Pietro Micca was built as a sea-going steam tugboat by Rennoldson & Son, in Southshields, Newcastle (GB) and in 1905 was registered as a steam-powered tug, Schooner Class, in the Coastal Sector Register in Naples, in whose waters she was to spend most of her days. A life fulfilled in the world of work and all that it entails: ships and seamen from distant lands with tales and legends of cargoes and the knowledge that a frayed cable could cost lives, that a tow badly aligned could cause a ship to capsize... It is memories like these which amply justify the over a century aged Pietro Micca's honest (website hidden) she is far away to retire pensioned off. At the beginning of 1996 she was bought by the "Associazione Amici delle Navi a Vapore G. L. Spinelli" (the G.L. Spinelli "Friends of Steamships Association"), in order to save a part of our cultural heritage from certain demolition and make her still valid services available to the public. The Pietro Micca is always ready and waiting to put to sea again to work for her future, as historical witness of the old technology. Hosts are welcome to have a guided visit to the hearth of the ship: the engine room.
She is moored in a Yacht Club on the Tiber river in Fiumicino in a natural environment facing an uninhabited island that is a paradise for migratory birds.
The crew cabin could guest up to 8 people, the bunks are confortable and clean, like always in a boat! On board you'll find a toilet but she is actually in a yacht club where you'll find shower rooms and toilets, a bar and restaurant open for lunch, free wi-fi, a laundry with coins. We also have two bikes for our guest, just ask!
Just 1 km away from the boat there are many restaurants, some really good pizzeria, beaches, bars, shops, etc. The airport is just 10 minutes driving from the shipyard and 10 minutes takes to the metro station Ostia Antica to Rome and all main turistic attractions.
