We are sailing the Millennium Med 5/11/03. Have done some research on companies who do private tours and have settled on Daniele from www.driverinrome.com Looks like for an all day 'Splendor of Rome' tour for a party of six including transfers from Civitavecchia would run approx $130US pp. Daniele will customize the day for specific requests and apparently can bypass the long lines at many of the stops. Hoping to find some folks with similar interests to buddy up with. Husband and I are 56 and 51 but we can still move really fast!
And love history too.
I wish that I could go with you. We took one of their tours last May when we were on the Constellation and had a wonderful day. Our guides were Daniele's father, Remo, and his assistant, Aldo. They were absolutely the best. I hope that you have as much fun in Rome as we did.
