Member Review: girl39's Rotterdam Review
Port Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

Found a line of minvans outside the terminal. Jumped in one and waited until the van was full. We hit all the highlights between Limassol and Paphos that would have been hit on multiple ship tours. Enjoyed a local lunch on the water while others in our van toured the mosaics. Great day. I believe the van cost 20 euros each.

Rome (Civitavecchia)
Etruscan tour Rating: Not Rated

We had to be back on board at 3PM so decided to go to Tarquinia. We had signed up for a ship tour, but it was cancelled due to lack of sign ups at the last minute. This proved to be propitious. Taxi driver Michael did not speak English well, but after some back and forth he realized we wanted to go to Tarquinia and not Rome. We arranged a fee of 100 euros I think it was. Our first stop on the way to his cab was an almost hidden espresso bar where we had wonderful cappachinos. On the way to Tarquinia he pointed out the island where the Costa Concordia ran aground. When we got to Tarquinia he directed us to the ancient city walls and waited for us by the Museum. To get there we walked though a street market. We grabbed another coffee with Michael and then hit the museum for 2 hours. Michael then drove us through the old town and then over to the Necropolis where we spent an hour. After that we had a splendid Italian lunch at a restaurant he pointed us to (Piazza D'Erba) and then we went back to Civitavecchia. Michael had a pass, so was able to drop us directly at the ship. Wonderful and memorable day.
