I call this "Rome on Roller skates" only because would were moving quickly, so that we could see as many sights as possible with in our short amount of time. It was HOT, but we made it to the important places. Our guide was wonderful. she was knowledgeable about everything. The Guide at Vatican was wonderful as well, I felt like I was in church. These guides know so much! We chose Carnival's excursions, because we were not sure what to expect in Europe. We were so happy that we did, because we made it back to the ship in a timely fashion, and we got to see and do so much in the time what we had.
