Rome: River Cruise
The Eternal City
Cruises on the Tiber River in Rome are widely available and reasonably priced. While they may be advertised as “a spectacular way to see the Eternal City”, you may discover that it was a waste of your time and money. The Tiber River is narrow compared to Thames or Seine and some of the cruises or boat rides are disorganized with no signs or directions. At certain times of the year, particularly during the hotter seasons, the river is well below street level with high protective walls, so you may not see anything except the bridges. Garbage and debris can also be found along the banks.
