Here are 5 Ways to book the Perfect Airport Transfers in Rome

.

1  Book your Airport Transfers in advance.  

Don’t wait until the very last minute to book your airport transfers.

Not only last minute availability is limited during peak travel months and holidays, but when booking something as important and detailed oriented as an Airport Transfer, it’s easy to make errors in placing your reservations or overlook important information provided by the company regarding your transfers.

.

2  Book ALL your transfers together

To simplify your travel plans and secure all your transfers together, it’s best to book ALL your transfers together in advance and have one less thing to worry about during your trip.

This will eliminate stress during your holiday worrying about how you will make your way back to the airport for your departure transfer, and making last minute transfer arrangements abroad can be problematic if you can’t secure availability.
.

3  Include your total luggage count

Inform the company of the total number of luggage pieces (suitcases and carry ons) you have to ensure you will be provided a suitable size vehicle to accommodate all passengers and luggage safely together.

 

4  Arriving at Fiumicino Airport?  Prepare in advance.

Read the important information provided on our website, in our confirmation emails, and watch our helpful video on How to Meet your RomeCabs Driver at Fiumicino Airport

5. Turn your Airport Transfer into a Mini Tour of Rome

Stefano’s RomeCabs offers very popular VIP TRANFSERS with options for 1 hour tour by car, or 2 hour mini tour in Rome with options to make stops to take photos, have a quick lunch, coffee, gelato or do some preparatory shopping.

This is your time to spend as you wish with your English speaking RomeCabs Driver at your disposal.

 

4  Flying out of Rome internationally?
Select your pick up correctly

Book your Transfer from Rome to the Airport at least 3 hours prior to your International flight departure time.  

Don’t book your pick up transfer too close to your flight, you will risk missing your flight if you encounter unexpected traffic delays which is always problematic and unpredictable in Rome.

.

5  Flying out from Fiumicino Airport?
Check your departure Terminal Number

If your flight departs from Fiumicino Airport, check the Terminal Number your flight will depart from and inform the company which terminal to drop you off at for accurate service.

You could be flying out of Terminal 1, Terminal 2, Terminal 3, and Terminal 5

At Fiumicino Airport airlines share multiple Terminals for departure depending on first destination cities, code sharing, or other circumstances.

Sometimes airlines may also change Terminals last minute and it’s important to check your departure details for any changes.

.

We hope these easy tips will help make your Airport Transfers in Rome or elsewhere in the world a perfect beginning and ending to your holiday!

“Swan Lake” and the Enchanting Lake Bracciano

26 May Swan Lake - Bracciano Lake tour with Rome Cabs

.

Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs, Rome’s leading company for private Transfers, Day Tours, and Shore Excursions.

This article features the following video and the enchanting villages that surrounds Lake Bracciano:

“Swan Lake” and the Enchanting Lake Bracciano

 .

 .

Lake Bracciano is one of the most famous and prominent lakes in Italy, located in the countryside of Rome not far from the port of Civitavecchia and it’s one of the most popular countryside destinations on RomeCabs’ Day Tours and Shore Excursions.

Considered the 8th largest lake in Italy, Lake Bracciano is widely used for sailing, rowing, and its dark sandy beaches attracts a large number of beach goers in the summer months.

Surrounded by the charming lakeside villages of Bracciano, Anguillara and Trevignano, Lake Bracciano is one of the most seeked out destinations for Romans wishing to escape the city of life of Rome, and visitors who wish to experience the tranquility and the beauty the Roman countryside has to offer.

.

“SWAN LAKE”

What makes Lake Bracciano even more enchanting are the many swans that grace the shores and sometimes even mingle with the people who gather on the dark sand lakeside beaches in awe and fascination around these beautiful and graceful birds.

In English, the word swan comes from the Indo-European root “swen’ – to sound or to sing.

In Italian, swans are called “cigno” (chee-nio), deriving from the Latin word “cycnus” (meaning a bird noted for it singing and sacred to pagan Sun god Apollo).

.

THE ENCHANTING LAKESIDE VILLAGES

The best places to have the opportunity to encounter these beautiful swans are along the shores of Trevignano, Anguillara, and the promenades near Bracciano.

.

TREVIGNANO

Trevignano is one of the lakeside villages with charming promenades lined with outdoor cafes and restaurants, Sunday markets, and folks taking strolls by the lake.

Inland, you discover the sleepy Medieval hamlet of Trevignano that has retained its historic feel that gives visitors the impression of stepping back in time a thousand years!

Walled in from the rest of the more modern world, the hamlet is a quite charming refuge of narrow alleys lined with cute doorways and windows with lacy curtains, a few local shops, and weathered facades of medieval stone buildings.

ANGUILLARA

Anguillara (officially named Anguillara Sabazia) is another medieval village that rests on a small cape on the coast providing a spectacular backdrop as the lake mirrors its reflection it is pristine clear water.

Its most spectacular feature is the promenade that leads to the village open lakeside square and its dark sandy beaches that is a popular destination for Italians and some foreign tourists who wish to spend a day at the lake.

BRACCIANO

The village of Bracciano is larger than the other two villages and it’s dominated by 15th century Renaissance Bracciano Castle (Castello Orsini-Odescalchi) that is still owned by the same Odescalchi family since the Renaissance times.

5 Fun Reasons to Tour Rome By Night with RomeCabs

15 May Trajan's Forum, part of RomeCabs Rome by Night Tour

 

Rome is very exciting, lively, and even chaotic during the day bustling with tourists, buses, and local traffic. The sun radiates brightly on weathered earth toned buildings and on ancient monuments of stone.

At night, the atmosphere changes….

As the darkness descends on the Eternal City casting glowing tones of crimson and gold, and slowing transitioning into the midnight blue skies, the magic begins.

Stefano’s RomeCabs features a very popular ROME AT NIGHT TOUR that takes you on a magical 2 hour journey through Rome to see many of Rome’s most amazing squares and monument that are quite remarkable at night.

 

 

Here are our top 5 reasons to tour Rome by Night with Stefano’s RomeCabs

 

1  See More of Rome at Night by car

You have the opportunity to see MORE of Rome’s fascinating places by car than on foot. If you are on limited time and would like to see as much of Rome at night as possible, this is the perfect way.

2. English speaking Driver on your Rome at Night Tour

Your English speaking RomeCabs Driver is at your disposal to communicate with you the sites you visit, and to offer suggestions based on your interests if you wish to see other places than suggested on our tour page.

 

3. Perfect for tired travelers

If after day exploring Rome on foot, the last thing you probably want to do is go out and further explore Rome at night once again on foot.  The ancient cobblestones and uneven sidewalks can wreak havoc on tired feet.  Touring by car eliminates this extra effort as you are comfortably driven from site to site.

 

4. Your driver will stop as close to the sites as possible

Your driver will drop you off as close to the sites as possible for you to step out, enjoy the scenery, and take photos. You don’t have to worry about how to get around from place to place, your driver will take you exactly where you need to go.  This is convenience at its best!

 

5. Tour Rome at Night in Comfort and Style with RomeCabs

PANORAMIC ROME FOR CRUISERS SHORE EXCURSION

13 May Colosseum, part of Panoramic Rome for Cruises Tours with RomeCabs

 

Stefano RomeCab’s popular Panoramic Rome for Cruisers Tour excursion from Civitavecchia offers experienced and leisure seeking cruisers the opportunity to enjoy Rome at a more relaxed pace, sample more of Rome’s highlights, not be obligated to purchase expensive admission tickets that are non-refundable should your travel plans change, and avoid the super crowded tourist attractions like the Colosseum and the Vatican.

AVOID THE CROWDS ON YOUR ROME TOUR

Why battle crowds lined up to enter the crowded Colosseum with potential security lines that eat up your precious sightseeing time when the exterior of the Colosseum is considered by many it’s most fabulous feature (and it doesn’t cost you anything to see it from the outside).

SAVE TIME TO SEE MORE BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN ROME

By not spending so much time inside the Colosseum, you have time to explore the spacious Colosseum Square to admire the Colosseum from its different sides, as well as the nearby Arch of Constantine.

 

Colosseum Panoramic Rome

Colosseum Square

 

The Vatican, although fabulous, it’s also super crowded in the summer months. It’s been described as a hot can of sardines with visitors pushed and shoved forward in what appears to be a human river slowly moving forward.

It’s certainly not an enjoyable way to spend 2 hours, crushed from left to right by large group tours and visitors (many with selfie sticks). 

The Vatican is best enjoyed OFF season between November and February when there are relatively few visitors in comparison to the massive crowds in the tourist season.

 

St Peter Square

St Peter’s Square

 

ENJOY UNEXPECTED PLACES IN ROME!

On this tour you also have the wonderful opportunity to experience something quite unique:  ROME UNDERGROUND!

Beneath Basilica of San Clemente are 2 incredible layers of Ancient History to explore: 4th century AD basilica that was converted from a Roman noble’s private house that features beautiful ancient wall frescoes, mosaics, and sculpture fragments that you can see as you  make your way through the many underground rooms and passageways.

Deeper still is a 1st century AD ancient Roman structure that may have been a residential complex that once upon a time included a Mithraic temple (dedicated to the pagan god Mithras) that is still in remarkable condition!

During hot summer months, a journey in time and underground, is a cool and refreshing respite!

  • Pantheon
