    • Disappointment with arrival at the Rome Airport

      • Service
        I specifically asked the agent in Cleveland if there would be anyone else on my flight. He told me he could not tell me that. It turned out that there were several fellow travelers from Atlanta on my flight. Also, there was no one at the Rome airport to meet me and take me to the hotel. Had it not been for the Rome Airport attendant, I would not have found the group from Atlanta. I was in panic mode and did not have an emergency phone number. I was ready to take a cab to Hotel Columbus.

        The Papal Audience and St Pio were the major reasons I wanted to take the tour. I also liked visiting the other tour cities and the Churches were wonderful; however, some of the tour days were too fast paced, especially the last day. We visited 4 Churches and the Colosseum side trip in one day - it was too rushed, not to mention lunch was rushed. Some of the meals left a lot to be desired. The first meal at Satiricus Restaurant was great. In general, the hotel meals were good. The farewell dinner was so so - nothing spectacular. I liked Hotel Columbus because of it's location near the Vatican. Hotel Scapolatiello was the best; however, we had to lug our carry on baggage up steep steps. Our tour manager, did find a way to take the road down to the bus rather than taking the steps the next morning. I was under the impression that all baggage transfers were included on this tour. I think the museum (Florence) and the Vatican and Church tour guides were knowledgeable; however, after the first 10 minutes of construction dates and more dates - I tuned out. In other words, more practical items of interest would have been nice and more time to explore the Vatican and Churches on our own would have been great. Finally, we were at the Church across the street from the steps Christ went up to talk to Pontius Pilot; however, the steps were not on the tour route - a disappointment. All in all, I am glad I took the tour. I also got to make new friends from Atlanta also.
