Reviews of Full day Excursion from the Civitavecchia Port to Rome and the Vatican

Reviewed by Alicia M. from


Nos recogieron en el puerto, en una monovolumen Mercedes, la cosa ya pintaba bien, tuvimos un excelente y profesional conductor FRANCESCO que no dudó en llevarnos a ver diferentes parajes de Roma a pesar del poco tiempo que teníamos, En el vaticano teníamos a nuestro guia FRANCESCO (los dos se llaman igual), que nos sumergió en la vida de Miguel Angel de una forma divertida y amena de modo que nos tenía entusiasmados. Llegamos al puerto de una forma tranquila sin pensar en que pudieramos perder nuestro barco, a pesar de las distancias entre el puerto y el centro de Roma, y el tránsito. Desde España muchísimas gracias a nuestros dos FRANCESCOS, nos hicieron pasar un dia en Roma excepcional y además con el cometido cumplido.ARRIVEDERCI!!
