    Give yourself a lot of time to get back. Rome is very crowded and has a lot of traffic. We were aiming to return on the 3:30pm bus, there was so much traffic, we didn't make it and had to take the 4:00pm bus back to the port. The bus was a little difficult to find, this is a good route if you like or don't mind walking

    Super organized despite little time!

    The time in Rome was relatively short for us, but that's because of the shipping company and not because of the provider. If you want to see some things in Rome you have to hold on, but you could also just get out at a few places and otherwise see the sights from the bus. The shuttle from the port and back worked great, the bus was air-conditioned and the bus driver was very nice. We were totally satisfied and would book again and again! (PS: above all compared to the prices of the shipping companies)

    Well organized

    Stop / pick up directly between Petersplatz and Trevi fountain. Many sights can be easily reached on foot. Hop-on hop-off therefore makes redundant unless you use the 5.5 hour stay with extreme sightseeing without a break. 1 round with the tour takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes. The Collosseum is about the middle of the tour.
