We had a very nice though whirlwind tour of the city. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave up plenty of information to soak up about the history of Rome. A private tour is the way to go. We saw more than people who took the ship excursions and although we were rushed, the car could drive in areas where the buses were not allowed and since my husband has issues with his knees and feet, this made for a little less walking. The cost of a private tour is much less than thru the ship and they always had us back to the ship at least an hour to an hour and a half before the all aboard time. Read Less

Booked another private family tour with Miles&Miles - our favorite yet! It is the only way to see as much as possible while in port. We toured Rome (so much more then I could ever list here but certainly hit all the highlights!) - enjoyed a local cappuccino and gelato (both favorites of our whole trip!) - really got to see some favorite local places - visited Crypt of Cappuccini Monks (definite visit if possible!). Vatican in the afternoon. Also a must-do if you have not been before but we look forward to spending more time just in Rome exploring the next time we visit... so if you can visit Rome without feeling like you "should" visit the Vatican, I would recommend. There is just too much to see in a day! Miles&Miles arranged a lovely tour of the Vatican for us but it was rushed and crowded and 2 hours we would have rather spent just exploring. We requested it though so in no way is this a fault of the tour they arranged. Read Less

We took a taxi to the train station (10Eur) and then train to Rome (20eur for a family of 4. We took the open top bus in Rome - long queues and average experience. Rome is a must visit city due to its majesty but it is also a place to visit once only. It was quite dirty and lots of litter, graffiti everywhere. The main sights (Colloseum, Trevi, etc) are worth the effort though. Enjoy! Read Less

I would not do this tour again. We spent 3 hours in the Vatican and there was a problem as the tour guide was told 11.30am but we were booked to go in at 11.00am and so it ended up taking us around an hour to get in. It was so crowded and was not a good experience at all. The driver did not speak much and did not give us much information about the places we visited. We drove home in silence in complete contrast to MariaClara on our previous excursion who was so much fun. Read Less

We got to all the major sites - Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and finally St. Peters. Be careful of the cruise tours as many of them did not include entrance to either the Colosseum or St. Peters - a hard lesson some of our tablemates learned. Read Less

Since we were embarking on our NCL Epic cruise from the Port of Rome, we arrived a day early walked around the city and then arranged a private tour with transfer to the Port using RomeInLimo. We had a wonderful day with our RIL driver Enrico. Since this was our fifth trip to Rome, Enrico made it his personal challenge to use our time wisely and to show us sites we had not seen before. We were blown away by how much Enrico taught us and all of the new sites he showed us beyond those we had requested (the Baths of Caracalla,in Rome and the Etruscan ruins nearer the port). Enrico managed both traffic and time masterfully and we arrived at the ship having had an amazing day of new sites and fun. Read Less

Gabriele was a passionate Roman who loved his city and his enthusiasm was infectious. His walking tour was of lesser known districts of Rome, away from the traditional tourist traps (other than for the Trevi fountain at my request – after all, it WAS my birthday). The piazzas, side streets and bridges were wonderful, aided and abetted by his commentary. His English was not perfect, but good enough to give all relevant information and to answer questions. Lunch was at a small bohemian bar/restaurant/shop which served a fresh lunch for a reasonable price. He was generous with his time and we parted company feeling that we had a fresh perspective and positive on Rome. Thank you, Gabriele. Read Less
