What people are saying about Mergellina

There are tour guides, there are great tour guides, and then there’s Marco and Refaeli whom I believe represent the superlative in what the Rome tourism industry has to offer. Our driver (Marco) knew everything there was to know about the Italian countryside on the way to our destinations and filled us in with Italian history, legends, and everything in between. Our tour guide at Pompeii (Refaeli) was a wonderfully energetic and knowledgeable historian who strolled through the ruins akin to that of a child on Christmas. My wife and I learned so much on this trip and it will certainly be one of our highlights during our vacation in Italy.

Line B allows you to have an overview of the coast, we did the entire route without going down, and it really deserves it! Line A, on the other hand, being dedicated to the part of the historic center, lends itself to descents and ascents. Both are useful for an overview of the city.

Po meni vrlo jednostavan način za obići grad i upoznati ga na brzinu. Postoje dvije linije, jedna koja ide uz grad, a druga koja ide u zaljev. Crvena i plava. Naravno možete izaći na bilo kojoj stanici koja je mjesto vašeg interesa i ponovo uči i vratiti se na početno mjesto.

Busy but well organised and well worth doing good value for money

perfect for all ages. it's easy-to-use and very joyful.
