I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DANIELE TO ANYONE TRAVELING OFF CRUISE SHIPS IN ITALY.
Jennifer and I hired Daniele from DriverInRome on our honeymoon in September of 2003 for a daily excursion, not really a transfer. We used Daniele for an excursion in Rome since Jennifer and I had both been to Rome before and we wanted a private tour of mostly the countryside, he did a hybrid of the official ship excursion descriptions. He picked us up at Civitavecchia, took us through the city for brief sightseeing10 min. stop at the Vatican for pictures, 5 min stop at Coliseum for pictures, 1-hour walk around at the Spanish steps & shops, then we spent the duration of the day in the countryside. He took us to an amazing restaurant with a wine cellar that was basically tunnels of catacombs below the restaurant at the top of the mountain where the Pope's summer palace is. We had lunch, he got us access to the wine cellar tunnels, and then we walked up to the little village/town square at the entrance to the Pope's palace and had the best gelato up there we found anywhere in Italy. Then he drove us straight back to the ship at Civitavecchia. When my sister Erin and her husband Scott went on their honeymoon in May/June of 2005, they hired him as well primarily for a transfer I think, but communications broke down and he didn't show up. He did apologize profusely when it happened and offered them an entire day excursion and transfers for free as compensation. I don't remember what they ended up doing...perhaps just used him for transport only. I can't remember if my parents have hired them as well...maybe you remember? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DANIELE TO ANYONE TRAVELING OFF CRUISE SHIPS IN ITALY. THE ALL-DAY TOURS THAT FORCE YOU LIKE SHEEP ON THE HUGE BUSES ARE TERRIBLE. DANIELE AND HIS FATHER'S COMPANY PROVIDE THE SAME EXCURSIONS ANYONE CAN ORDER FROM THE CRUISES, BUT WITH THE FLEXIBILITY, THE COMFORT OF A NICE MERCEDES, AND A PERSONALIZED TOUCH.
