Traveling to Italy this summer? Don’t forget to bring THESE with you

3 Jun Summer in Rome with RomeCabs


Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs Transfer and Tour blog. Our mission is to help you turn our trip to Italy into a vacation of a lifetime with our private transfers, day tours and shore excursions to many of Italy’s top destinations.

Summer is by far the most popular time millions of people worldwide travel to Italy on their summer vacations. While many travelers prefer to travel light (less luggage), especially when summer clothes take up such little space, there are a few things that you should bring with.


Traveling to Italy this summer?
Don’t forget to bring THESE with you


1 Comfortable Shoes

Summertime often means sandals, flip flops, and fashionable high heels… except in many places in Italy where you will come across cobblestones, uneven pavement, uphill and downhill streets,  and archaeological sites with dirt and stones.

In Italy, ditch the flip flops for the beach and wear comfortable foot supporting walking sandals or shoes that will protect your feet from injury or tripping.


2  Sun block, Sunglasses, Sunhat

The Mediterranean sun is strong in the summer, make sure you protect your skin, eyes, and head while sightseeing outdoors.   

You can also also purchase these in Italy as they are widely available if you forget to bring yours or would like to do some shopping in Italy.

3 Bring something to cover your shoulders and knees inside churches.

If your wardrobe consists of sleeveless tops and shorts, dresses, or skirts that are above the knee, be sure to bring something with you that you can cover your shoulders and knees in event you wish to visit the amazing churches in Italy.

Many churches impose a modesty dress code that includes covering your shoulders and knees.

What not to wear in Italy Churches

If you prefer to have flexibility and be spontaneous with your sightseeing destinations, bring something light with you that you can carry in your small day bag that not only you can use to cover up while visiting your favorite churches, but also to use in the evening when the temperature cools down and a shawl or a sleeved top will take away the chill.


4 Bring a Portable Water Bottle

It’s very hot in Italy in the summer, so it’s important to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Buying bottled water can cost 2 Euros or more at kiosk vendors near tourist attractions. At most cafes tourist markets, you find them at about 1 Euros each. At the local supermarket about 25 cents.

Even if you buy a pack of bottled water from a local market and keep them refrigerated in your room, you’d go through your first bottle of water by mid morning. You can either refill the same bottle of water throughout the day, or just bring a portable and refillable water bottle with you that you can reuse throughout your vacation.

Many fountains in large cities like Rome serve cold fresh natural drinking water, one of the best ways to quench your thirst in the Eternal City

You can also buy a large cold bottle of water from the market of cafe and use it to refill smaller bottles if you are traveling with family or friends.

5 A Back-up Piece of Luggage.

While many travelers travel light, when they arrive in Italy they find so many wonderful things to buy that their luggage suddenly cannot contain all their new purchases.  By bringing a light cloth duffel bag, you have enough space for your belongings and your new treasures.

And don’t forget… starting the the 2nd week of July is the much anticipated Summer Sale that hits all the major clothing, shoes, and accessories shops in Italy.  Your shopping spree just became more exciting and affordable!

5 Ways to book the Perfect Airport Transfer in Rome

30 May Stefan's RomeCabs Company


Buon giorno and welcome to Stefano’s RomeCabs, Rome’s leading company for reliable Transfers and Tours

For more than 12 years Stefano’s RomeCabs have welcomed tens of thousands of travelers to Rome, and saw off just as many at the end of their holiday.

For more information about RomeCabs’ airport transfers, please click:  AIRPORT TRANSFERS

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.



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



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 (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.

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.

Bracciano Castle is open to visitors to explore the opulent Renaissance rooms with precious artwork, wall frescoes, and original furnishings and castle grounds and courtyards. Not to be missed is the spectacular view of Lake Bracciano from the top of the castle.

A visit into Bracciano Castle is part of Stefano’s RomeCabs Pre Cruise Countryside Tour and Countryside Splendor Day Tour from Rome and Shore Excursion from Civitavecchia.

Civitavecchia, Port of Rome (Italy)



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.


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).


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



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!


The fabulous sites in Rome included in Panoramic Rome for Cruisers Shore Excursion with Stefano’s Rome Cabs are:
  • Pantheon
  • Piazza della Rotonda
  • Trevi Fountain
  • Spanish Steps
