Private tour (just the 3 of us) in Mercedes Van for less than the cruise ship bus. We saw as much of Rome as could be crammed into a day (The Colosseum, The Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and a privately guided tour of The Vatican. The Pope must be in great shape. That place has a lot of steps. Rome is very crowded and we had to rush a bit to see it all, but it was great. Read Less

Rome – with a private tour of the Vatican! You definitely can’t see it in a day… but I think we did. Again we used the services of Joe Banana Limos and were met at the gangplank by our driver, Leonardo at 7:30 am. Our group of 8 climbed into his immaculate mini van and off we went. Personally, I think Leonardo could easily teach history at one of the Universities. My head is still reeling from what we learnt and saw that day.As in Florence, we first started up high on a hilltop overlooking the city of Rome and the Vatican. Also as in Florence, buses and many cars can’t access the roads that this tour company could, which made it remarkably easy to get us from one place to another. From there it was onto Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain (which was under renovation), the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum and Colesseum, Circus Maximus, the Appia Antica, oh and so much more! All this by 1:30 pm! Our group wanted pizza and Leonardo took us to what many would consider ‘a hole in the wall’, but they served 26 types of pizza and I had the best pork Paninni of my life at Pizza V.I.P. The rest of the group ordered all types of pizza… and loved it!At 2:30 pm we met Alexandra, our guide for the private tour of the Vatican, just outside the Vatican Museum. This is where things went a little haywire. Although, this booking was not handled by Joe Banana directly, but another company, that person booked us in on the wrong dates. The owner of this company, himself showed up, and although it was an hour later, we did finally make it into the Vatican. I must say that all the tour directors stepped up to the plate on this one and we were very well compensated for the problem that arose. Yes, we did get into the Vatican, but truth be told, as we did need to get back to the ship, we went through at lightning speed. Thank god Alexandra knew a lot of the guards and security inside, as this helped us get through some of the longer lines. Alexandra loved the Vatican or as she put it the original ‘recyclers’! Her enthusiasm was contagious. Although we made it through, by the time we got to St. Peter’s Basilica they were preparing for a televised Beatification for the next morning and many things were off limits. Oh well… just means we need to go back one day! It was back to meet Leonardo and our trip back to the ship where we were safely back on board by 6:30 pm. Read Less

I pre-booked a trip with Roberto Brunetti of LimousInRome - roberto.europe@gmail.com.What a wonderful experience. He was waiting for us, as promised. We had an air conditioned, comfortable, clean, mini-van for the seven of us. He drove us to Rome and gave us history along the way. We first visited the Colosseum and he took us to a "secret" place to get our tickets fast. We then visited, the Trevi Fountain - which was under renovations, the Spanish Steps - partial renovations, the Pantheon,lovely lunch at La Soffitta and ended with the Vatican City. We arranged a private guide at the Vatican City and had also pre-purchased our tickets on-line - skip the line and well worth it. Overall, left us wanting more of Rome and will certainly return. Loved this port! Read Less
