If you enjoy being hearded like cattle, joining many others in the same Gondola, and taken for a cursory ride through the main channel, and a quick trip through one small channel, in a large group of other gondolas, while being sung to by an Italian crooner with a wonderful voice, this is the trip for you. Otherwise spend a little more money for a private trip.
The dinner was very good, a little hard to find, but worth finding. The owner and the waitress were very enjoyable and we asked for a special wine and he was able to produce it.
My wife and I spent 4 days in Rome and Bruno was the best. He knows the areas and the history. If you do nothing else, do this bike trip, if your worried about how difficult it is, don't be, they will wait for you while you catch up. Wonderful, great trip.
The morning vatican tour was great. You have a two hour break for lunch, on your own. Expect lots of people even during the work week. Packed, but still very enjoyable. The guides were great and very nice, the headsets and electronics worked flawlessly, I could hear everything very well. The afternoon tour, takes you on a bus to all the other churches in Rome. Very nice, very compfortable. Take the full day tour. You will be glad you did.
Very nice accomadations, the sights were beautiful. If you have all day just to lounge and take in the sites, you will enjoy this tour. My wife and I were a little crunched for time and had to be somewhere else that day and found it to be nice, but not all that. So, we jumped off and grabbed a train back to Koblenz.
