This was a great way to see the highlights of the city when you only have a short time to visit. Included in our ticket was the transfer on SIT Shuttle Bus from the Civitavecchia cruise terminal to Rome. For those who may have trouble walking It is quite a walk to the Hop on Hop Off Bus stop from the SIT shuttle drop off point. Catching a taxi is a good idea for those with impaired walking abilities. The full route was longer than advertised because of traffic but for us that was fine. We enjoyed seeing the city on top of the bus. The Hop On Hop Off signs were easy enough to spot. There were employees around the area pointing us in the right direction. The Get your Guide Employee at the cruise terminal was very informative and did his job well. He made sure we understood where to go and what to do.

The trip was well organized all round and everyone on site was super nice. A slightly later departure time (we had departure at 3:30 p.m. in Rome) would have been desirable.

It was a very well organized and recommendable excursion. Cheaper than booked on the ship and just as well organized. Competent English speaking staff. Everything perfect !

Excellent, high quality bus. Very spacious, with WiFi, seatbelts, coach or regular seating. Our driver was dressed in shirt and tie and very professional and helpful.

Nice experience with bus transport. Company agents are easy to spot as soon as you get off the shuttle. Nice experience!
