A river cruise through the Eternal City

For those who want to escape the heat when visiting in the summer, a cruise line offers tours through the waters of the Tiber. Since 2003, the company "Battelli di Roma� has been offering tours of the Rome's famous river. Every year around 70,000 people choose to see the Eternal City by river tours during the spring and summer. MASSIMO DI CENCIO Battelli di Roma "For a while now now, we've had to reduce the amount of time that we operate in the winter. Because the Tiber is a torrential river, it's not as quiet as the Seine or the Thames. Because of this we only run from April to November.� Every 30 minutes a boat leaves from a dock by the monument of Castel Sant'Angelo traveling down the current to the famous Tiber Island. During the rise, tourists see some of the highlights of the Eternal City. "I was very curious to make this journey by boat and the truth is that it's a journey with a lovely view of some very important places like Castel Sant'Angelo. Although all of Rome is beautiful.� The last ride departs at 7 pm, because two hours later these vessels turn into restaurants. MASSIMO DI CENCIO Battelli di Roma "On Thursday, Friday and Saturday you can enjoy a typical Roman dinner while navigating the Tiber.� The cruise ship is a unique way to see the city of Rome while floating down the ancient Tiber River.
