Tour Tips

A strict dress code applies at the Vatican: Knees and shoulders must be covered.

No shorts, 3/4 pants or mini skirts allowed.

We recommend you wear comfortable shoes as there is walking involved.

The Rome by Night tour was very mediocre and somewhat disappointing. Firstly, due to some logistical problem, it the bus was extremely delayed in departing. Secondly, a few of the destinations that were on the agenda were just cancelled. The guide said that they are being cancelled as the streets are blocked due to EuroCup. Overall not a bad tour but those two aspects made it disappointing. I wrote to Marianna from Odyssey Tours and she gave a most satisfactory reply. It was still an enjoyable tour in spite for these two issues.
