Cinque Terre Hiking Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was one of our best experiences during our 21 day stay in Italy! The tour was hosted by Walkabout Florence. The two brothers leading the tour were Italian/American boys and great fun! The tour includes bus, train, and boat (weather permitting) travel, as well as plenty of hiking and an included lunch. Bring a small pack with umbrella/rain jacket and a WATER BOTTLE. Hiking is not difficult, but requires good balance and average good cardio shape. If you are a smoker, or quite overweight, you may want to get healthy before trying this one. The Cinque Terre is absolutely breathtaking, the guides are excellent, the food was wonderful, and the weather cooperated for us. This is a 13-14 hour start to finish experience, so give yourself a full-day in your itinerary, and don't miss out. Booking is also possible through Walkabout, but we were certainly pleased with all tours scheduled through Viator.

My Review

Both tours were good, with knowledgeable, English speaking guides. Saw major exhibits and avoided long lines. Very little time to see galleries on your own, but that's part of the deal when doing these tours. The positive is short lines and access to information via your guide that you would not otherwise have available. The negative...herded around like cattle...so, your choice.

Skip the Line: Borghese Gallery and Gardens Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Interesting gallery and pleasant English speaking guide. The Gardens ( really, a big somewhat crowded and overused public park with annoying activities) can be done on your own. Would probably go on our own next time, pay entry fee, and get audio tapes. Worth being guided....maybe...maybe not.

Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Small group tour with underground and upper tier access is the way to go on this one. You get a knowledgeable guide and access to areas others don't see with this package and it's worth it.

My Review

You really need to do this one unless you are creeped out by miscellaneous body parts used as an art form, or don't like small dark spaces and stairs. Good guides and bus travel provided.

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Vatican museums and major basilicas. Crowded, but a must do if you are a Catholic, or interested in art history. We enjoyed this day very much. Enough of a break between the two tours to enjoy lunch and some wine!

Papal Audience Tickets and Presentation

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

This was a wonderful experience for us as Roman Catholics. Our guide was the best! You can do this for free, but you will likely not get within 100 meters of Papa Francis! By paying a few Euros, we had seats within 10 meters of the Pope as he passed by. Make sure you have water and adequate protection from the sun. You will be waiting for a few hours for the Pope to pass by. Seats are not reserved, but a good guide and some luck (divine intervention) will get you in close. Our guide was very sweet and passionate about sharing her knowledge of the papal experience and historical data.
