Go outside port drop off. Look for your name immediately On small sign. Away from Crowded bus tours. See authentic small town, meet the local meat & cheese man..very hospitable. Lake is warm for swimming. Erna was great showing us the sites. Thank you Erna ! We could not finish the outstanding Italian lunch. Catered to vegetarians! Boat did not make port until next day and GYG made a call to arranged the tour again ! In 5 minutes ! AT NO EXTRA COST. 12 day cruise....a tour each port....By far the two GYG Tours were the most Authentic and enjoyable. Thank you GYG for connecting us with guides like Erna! I am sold on GYG.

Wonderful Day- Loved Bracciano and the Castle

Andrea was a great guide. He could not have provided for a nicer day, doing something new rather than going into Rome for the day. We loved the drive along the Ocean to Bracciano. The visit to Odescalchi Castle was well worth it, both interesting and not at all crowded. Lunch in town was good and we had the opportunity to drive along the lakeshore beaches and take a walk on the lakeshore Boardwalk (and have a gelato) in the next town of Trevignano Romano before returning to Civitavecchia. We loved learning the history of the area and ideas for a future trip. Thanks Andrea!
