This was an excellent way to se the city. Literally hop off, go for a walk see some sights and then hop on again. Purchased the tickets from internet in the morning, easy to find boat as its right there in the city, on the river. Very peaceful cruise and views that differed from being on street level.

We got a bit 'to the hair, for the last race. If you have children, there is also the option to stay under. Very spacious, well organized business, extremely punctual. Shuttles every Mezz h. I highly recommend reaching the boarding point, leaving the car in a paid parking lot.

Book with great serious guide. Precise timetable of the ferry, 1 hour cruise (I used it that way) very nice I had not seen Castel Sant'Angelo ... I could see it from the Tiber

beautiful experience you must remember to keep the headphones x the history of Rome always fascinating
