We spent 3 days in Rome at the Capo before catching a Carnival cruise. Like all the other reviews here, we had a great time at the Capo. We were in a room right next door to the dining area upstairs and had no trouble with any noise from there. The room was very clean and very large. The staff were very helpful. Breakfast in the morning on the terrace, started things right. The only problem we had was not with the Capo but with a tour booked through them with VASTOURS. The Vatican tour was terrible.
Standing in line for 1.5 hours in the heat and into the Vatican with a tour guide that was barely understandable. Next time I think we would tour the Vatican with a private car company. On our cruise ship we heard several couples tell about bypassing the line with their private car company. We booked our transport in Rome through Rome Cab[------] and were very pleased with the service. The rates were 45 euros from the airport to the hotel and 115 euros from the hotel to Civitavechia and from Civitavechia to the airport (all in air-confitioned Mercedes vehicles).
