We were in Rome and wanted to visit the birthplance of my wife, very far from the center of Rome. This country is more than about 140 Km south of Rome and not easy find. We also wanted stop by a church located just outside the city. We booked online at Transfers Roma in Limo
We could not be more safisfied with the services of the company. We were picked up at our Hotel, the time , a very friendly, English Speaking, professional driver, in a very confortable Mercedes. He had done his duty, identifying the church no problem, despite extremely challenging mountan road premises. He waited very patiently while we completed our 1 tour of the church.
Then he took us to the center of the country, again with no problems, and has brought us, as required under the agreement that we would re-encounter in three hours time. At the appointed time, we came back and made us go back to our hotel in Rome. Everything was done seamlessly, and this was not easy, personalized excursion we had request. What a joy you have booked with this company

While I had the privilege of living in Rome for four years and getting to know it really well, I'd recommend it for a vacation anytime. The mix of amazing food and layers of history is truly unique. If you can, give yourself more than the standard 3 day highlights tour and start to explore the secret bits of Rome-catacombs, family-run trattorias, and strolls through the center, preferably late at night.

Quite honestly, there is a large part of my subconscious already planning a move here.
The other part is telling me to finish making my coffee because I'm delusional in the morning.
What can be said about Rome that hasn't already been said or known? The center of one of the greatest empires in all of human history, remnants of the glorious ancients still remain. The new live with the old in this ever-changing landscape of culture—che figata questa cultura!
The grandeur of the city's buildings impressed me right away. Something about the way they're spaced together seemed to tower over a person. People drive with an aggressiveness that would put Californians to shame, where crossing the street at a "yield" crosswalk even made me a bit nervous.
Running over someone is still a crime here right?
Yes, I think it is.

One of the world's great cities. Incredible combination of ancient and modern. Lively neighborhoods, great local cuisine, and something for almost everyone in terms of history, culture and archaeology.

Beautiful city, especially at night! I love the way the city lights reflect in the water in the canals - very typical Italian scene! The city has a lot of history and major sites to see, like St. Peters, the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Pantheon, and much more! Good food, and people are pretty friendly for the most part!

Rome is more than a city. It's an idea. Rome once ruled as much of the known world as it cared to and it held it's magnificent empire together longer than any other. Today Rome is the Italian Capital, the heart of the Catholic Church and one of the top five historic cities in the world.

An art and history lovers paradise. The city of Rome is endlessly fascinating to visit. The food is outrageously delicious. The citizens of Rome like so many Italians are very friendly. Rome is one of my favourite cities in the world.

Rome has it all! History, culture and beauty. It is truly one of my favorite cities to wander. I never find a shortage of new things to see or experience. The food is divine, the photo ops endless and yes, romance seems to be everywhere. The perfect destination!

There are some people I know who don't like Rome due to the congestion and traffic. I personally loved it. Maybe it is because I went during August when the locals were out of town and hence, there was no traffic. Regardless, I thought the city was lovely and filled with many historic gems, such as the Pantheon and Santa Maria church. It's also small and compact so everything is within walking distance.

Probably the most diverse, complex, interesting, and fulfilling European city for a cultural visit. I would recommend staying as close to the centre as you can afford. This will cut down on the amount of time spent travelling each day, and maximise your sight-seeing time. There are lots of private rentals at quite affordable rates.
