Spent 45 minutes in Vatican Square. Then 2-hour bus ride around the city with guide discussion. It was good. Dirty city, too many tourists and pickpockets.

We went on the grand tour and it was terrible!! The guides last an elderly man and never found him. Our guide said very little and he mumbled it softly so I couldn't hear anything. They rush us everywhere and give us no time to look around on our own. Rome was an amazing place. I will go back without the tour. Read Less

We booked a private trip with RomeInLimo to pick up us at the port off our Royal Caribbean cruise ship at Civitavecchia and spend the day in Rome. We selected this option over booking with the cruise line excursions for two main reasons: Cost and Convenience. For eight people, the cost for the private RomeInLimo Sprinter van was half of the cost of the cruise line excursion and it could not have been better - the van was very comfortable and instead of traveling with a very large group, it was just our family and made the experience that much more personal and memorable. Convenience - having just our family gave us tremendous flexibility on our itinerary for Rome and our driver Mauricio knew perfectly how to adapt the day stops in Rome to our needs. Our group ranged in age from 79 to 21, and Mauricio was able to drop us off and pick us up very close to everything we wanted to see. We saw everything in Rome we wanted to see for just a 9 hour trip - all the great ancient Rome sites, Trivi Fountain, Spanish Steps, and topped off with the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel at Vatican City. My son and wife had been in Rome two years previous and they could not believe how our driver was able to work everything we wanted to see into a single day. Our driver gave us great tips to avoid crowds and reduce line waiting times at the Vatican by going direct from the Sistine Chapel into St Peters without having to return outside and enter the huge lines. Just a perfect day in Rome and I highly recommend RomeInLimo to everyone. Read Less

As a hop on/hop off bus tour - this would have been good except that in Rome, the bus does not drop off close to the monuments. In few instances, dropped off 1-2 blocks from entrance, in others a 5-10 min walk for those with full mobility. Additionally, the initial spot to pick up the Big Bus - long line to get a bus and the bus that came when we approached the front of the line - did not tell us that they were an express bus to the train station and not a bus to begin the tour. Also, the bus did not exactly follow their own map - thus leaving out a few sites along the route. You cannot see Vatican city from this bus tour. Also - no benches at any of the bus stops. Only one stop had a cafe - which did not have a bathroom. Had to walk a long block to find one that did offer a bathroom for customers. Not a tour for those with any walking issues. Read Less

Did the transfer plus hop on/hop off tour. Organization was poor - we arrived in Rome with 60 other passengers only to find no sightseeing buses waiting for us or organized. We were "pushed" on to already circulating buses.

We took the EXC tour "Best of Rome" which was a highlight of our cruise. Splurg and do it. Don't waste time looking for maps, waiting in lines or looking for transport! We went to the Trevi fountain in the morning and it was not that crowded, which we appreciated. We then went to the colloseum - which was a pinch me moment. Our tour guide was a history expert and a teacher - he was absolutely amazing!! Not just a tour guide reading from cards but someone who really knows everything there is to know about the subject matter!! We had lunch as an underground restaurant near the colloseum and this was a highlight of our trip - ammmmazing lasagna and wine. LOVED IT. The wine was flowing! We then went to the Vatican City and saw St. Peter's Basilica! We would like to go back and explore more of the vatican city. Not enough time for everything but we squeezed in everything that we could in one day!! Read Less

Spent 2 nights in Rome before cruise. Did the Combo Exclusive Catacombs After Closing / Bone Chapel Tours at night. It was cooler and less crowded then. Also, did the Rome In a Day Tour. That made a very long day, first going to the Vatican early morning, lunch break, and then going to the Colosseum for the rest of the afternoon. A lot of walking and climbing steps everywhere on this combined tour. It would be better to split this into 2 days. Both tours were skip the line! Best way to go - because there are long lines waiting to buy tickets. Read Less

We stopped off in Civitaveccia port which is just under an hour's drive from Rome. Opting for the Rome in a day excursion, we packed quite a bit into the day so it did feel quite rushed. First stop, the Coliseum, however, we were told not to go in as we wouldn't have time to queue up, so we just walked around. We hit the Spanish steps and Trevi fountain next, followed by Vatican city. One thing is that whilst Rome itself may not be too busy, as soon as you get anywhere near these landmarks, it's full of tourists, keep that in mind if you plan on visiting near Summer as it was already pretty crowded in May. We did feel that we were quite rushed as we were some of the last people to get back on the coach and some people even had to meet us at the next destination. Read Less
