The service was great, they were right on time both ways. Make sure to be on time, they are punctual. Excellent directions on were to meet and people were really nice and informative. Rome was great to do in your own, and this was great way to do that with Rick Steve downloads!

This is a very convenient way to go to Rome from Civitavecchia and back on time to board your ship before it departs. Great if you know what to do in Rome, or if you are not afraid of adventure.

This trip was very convenient and affordable in comparison to what was offered by our cruise line. The drive was on time to pick us up both at the port and in Rome for the return trip. We were dropped off within 2 minutes walking distance of the Vatican Museum entrance.

If this is not your first visit to Rome, the shuttle to Rome is a perfect way to explore on your own. The drivers were professional, courteous, and prompt. There were only six of us, so we were picked up by a van dropped off and picked up by St. Peter's square. We chose what we wanted to visit again had time to take in some of the fountains, the Pantheon, have a nice lunch, sample some gelato, quick shopping, and returned to the square. You have approximately five hours on your own. It was a very nice day.

Great price! Picked us up promptly in a large air conditioned bus, stopped for a bathroom/coffee break on the way to Rome and on the way back. Dropped us off and picked us up at the same spot outside the Vatican wall. We spent our time at the Vatican and tasted the pizza, gelato, espresso, etc. in shops just outside the Vatican wall.


4 star rating: Recommended October 2016

Good bus transport. No need to make a stop before Rome would be better in saving more time for us to tour the city.
