Beautiful views and serene travel Located on Vatican side of the Tiber River down the stairs. Small boat dock but marked well. Friendly staff and captain. Only negative might be the homeless tents under the bridges like every city. Relax up top!

Beautiful boat ride, it is possible to admire the beauty of Rome from another point of view, I do not recommend the hottest hours in summer, some boats have a cover upstairs, others do not

Very convenient for getting around and visiting Rome. Nevertheless, with the sanitary restrictions, the Vatican skip-the-line ticket did not serve us. Looking forward, Joffrey

Very good if you have more than three days there otherwise besides the Vatican tickets the taxi is an easy and inexpensive way

An unusual and fascinating aperitif! I'll do it again on my next trip to Rome
