    All in all it was very well planned. Only the starting point, where the trip should start, was displayed incorrectly by Google Maps. The point was somewhere in the harbor area. But he was at the beginning of the port. And the shuttle buses went there. Then all you had to do was get on the other bus and off you went. But because we didn't find the point right away, we arrived a full 3 minutes later. So the bus to Rome was gone. We then had to take a €8 bus to the train station and from there take a €40 train to Rome. So we spent an additional €48. That really sucked, to be honest. Otherwise there was nothing to complain about. The return transport was also flawless.

    Give yourself a lot of time to get back. Rome is very crowded and has a lot of traffic. We were aiming to return on the 3:30pm bus, there was so much traffic, we didn't make it and had to take the 4:00pm bus back to the port. The bus was a little difficult to find, this is a good route if you like or don't mind walking

    Super organized despite little time!

    The time in Rome was relatively short for us, but that's because of the shipping company and not because of the provider. If you want to see some things in Rome you have to hold on, but you could also just get out at a few places and otherwise see the sights from the bus. The shuttle from the port and back worked great, the bus was air-conditioned and the bus driver was very nice. We were totally satisfied and would book again and again! (PS: above all compared to the prices of the shipping companies)
