“Transportation in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

Depending on where your hotel it, many of the city's attractions are within walking distance if you enjoy walking. Please note street signs on poles do not exist, but are part of the masonry of buildings if they are there at all. Streets change names often so consult your map.

A taxi ride from Termini Station (rail) to our hotel (5 minute ride) was 30 euros (about $45). An absolutely ridiculous price. We learned later that the subway, which was very efficient and I think 3 euros for both of us, went within a block of our hotel. If at all possible, find where your hotel is located in relation to the subway. We walked to the Vatican early in the morning, it took about 45 minutes, but decided in the heat to take the metro back which took about 10 minutes. There is a lot to see walking, but the metro gets you places fast on the cheap.

We used a hotel to airport taxi service, which was basically a newer Mercedes sedan with a chauffeur. He was at our hotel at 7AM as requested (actually early) and extremely professional. I felt a heck of a lot better about paying him 45 euros than a taxi their 40 euro charge for airport transport. We didn't want to miss our plane home and making special arrangements felt right. My wife heard a guy in the airport terminal saying to a co-traveller "that was the worst train ride of my life", which made me feel even better about the airport taxi service I ordered. Happy wife, happy life. Enjoy Rome. PS the sit-down restaurants are overpriced and the food was crappy. Much better value and food at some lower priced little take-out/eat-in places.

“Excellent, courteous & prompt service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

We used Rome airport transportation 4 times between Central Rome & Fiumicino airport and were very impressed. After a 24 hour trip from Australia it was great to be met by a friendly driver who called the landlord of the apartment we were staying at, both on the way and when we arrived. He also waited with us until someone arrived with the key (~10 minutes). We would probably have been a bit panicky without his help as our Italian is very basic. The other 3 drivers were equally prompt & courteous with clean and comfortable cars. Cannot recommend this highly enough for a stress free way to & from the airport for about the same cost as the train (for our family of 4). It was also great to be able to book online given our language deficiencies!

“Amazing service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Can't recommend this service highly enough. We used it for journeys to and from Rome Fiumicino to central Rome. We were met at the airport and ushered to a waiting Mercedes - the driver took our luggage and wouldn't let us touch it! We were driven straight to our apartment in Rome and the driver made sure that we were met there by the owner. He drove carefully and was very friendly. At the end of our stay in Rome we were picked up by a different driver but one who was equally good. We were picking up a hire car from Hertz and the driver took us right to the lift which took us directly to the car hire area of the airport and he carried all our luggage to the lift for us. This is a brilliant service and if we are in Rome again we will definitely use it. Why bother with trains, buses and taxis when you can get this wonderful service for very little more money?

“Reliable and Professional”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

We used this company for an airport transfer to our hotel in Rome. I made the reservation through their website. They immediately confirmed and their prices were reasonable. Upon arrival, a gentleman was waiting for us with our name on a sign. He was very friendly and professional. He escorted us to a luxurious Mercedes van, which surprised us. We weren't expecting this level of service. This company was reliable and professional and I would definitely recommend them for airport transfers. At least you know the cost ahead of time and don't have to deal with any surprises from local taxis.

“Best way to go to the airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

I read other reviews and decided to go with this company for transportation to the airport. We asked to go early so as not to stress over possible delays. They were right on time even though it was early. The car was actually a Mercedes wagon that easily accommodated all of us and our luggage. I will always use them in the future for transportation to and from the airport. This was the best way to travel to the airport.
