The point if a city bus tour is to see sights and put some context around them - earphones etc didn't work - the tour guide tried but couldn't fix them - we asked for our money back and she was rude and arrogant (will definitely report her to the company) and tried to charge 40 euros after we had...

I'm not sure if they are still in business. I took the day tour of the Vatican and Rome (Colosseum, Palatine etc.) in May 2013. So appalling I gave up after lunch. Although promised 4 hours at the Vatican when you deduct waiting for coaches, walking aimlessly and collecting audio guides that don't work, the actual sightseeing was about 90... More

We left Rome full of excitement and enthusiasm for the five days ahead: Sorrento two nights and Amalfi two nights. Our Sorrento accommodation was around 4km out of town: it was supeb and we were upgraded to a... More

On 27 May, 5 days before our departure on 31 May, we received an email from Appian Lines that their company a/c has been... More

Our family was planning a trip to Italy in July of 2013 and we had communicated with Appian Line regarding the tours available. We had used them in the past with no problems. Much to our surprise when we contacted them for credit card payment they advised us they are out of business.

we were on a 5 day tour with them from Rome to Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri, Positano, and Amalfi return. We did complete a brief walk around Naples, that was alright, although most of the time we couldn't hear the guide... we then headed to Pompeii. We had lunch, where there was no menu, food was just brought to us,... More

Booked walking tour of Colosseum through weekend in italy, went to meeting point 30 minutes early only to find NO ONE. I was displeased to say the least. I am expecting my money back; don't even know why weekend in italy is still selling these tours.

We booked our three day tour to Sorrento through Grayline.com. Their agent in Rome, Appian Line was supposed to pick us up but they did not turn up. No call, no email whatsoever. We tried calling them but all we got was a recording in Italian. Later we found out that the company had gone belly up. What a shame... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
