Default Rome

Just back from Eastern Med cruise with Celebrity Galaxy. If anyone is interested I can definitely recommend Max Leotta at Rome Limousine Service. He wanted me to mentioned that he has a new email address: maxleotta@tiscali.it ... apparently people are still having problems reaching him. I used him for transporation to the port ... minivan $150.

I also used for airport services Olympic Limousine Service ... they were very professional and cost was very reasonable. They can be reached at info@olympiclimousineservice.com (40 euro to the airport for a car), the owner is Valerio Sacchetti. Website is http://www.olympiclimousineservice.com/eng/index.html

I also did a walking tour ... I hired a private tour guide named Federica. Her website is: http://www.guidaturisticaroma.it/englishmain.htm. She is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed the tour.

In rome, I stayed at the Franklin "Feel the Sound" Hotel. It is near the vatican. It can be out of the way for some people ... it is about 5-10 min walk to metro. Very friendly staff. Room was clean and modern style. Breakfast was very good.

Thanks, Bev

She charged $110 Euro for 5 people for 3 hours. We visted the coliseum, roman forum, palatine. Because we finished the above early, she took us to the Panthenon and the Trevi Fountain.

Her email is info@guidaturisticaroma.it

She does tours for the tour companies and this on the side. She seems to answer her emails only a weekly basis (weekends).
