  • Bonjour, je suis très déçu de cette prestation et je ne ka recommanderai a personne. En effet lorsque j'ai voulu réserver mes places pour le Vatican je n'y suis jamais arrivé. Je vous écrit mais la seule réponse a été que je devais attendre d'être sur place. Bien évidemment sur place on m'a dit que je n'avais pas réservé donc il n'y avait plus de place .... Je suis scandalise et déçu de m'être fait bluffer... Vous devriez faire au moins un geste car je ne sais pas si vous avez un moyen de vérifier mais je n'ai pas pu faire les attractions. ...

    Bonjour Yves,

    Nous sommes navrés de la gêne occasionnée.

    En effet, les réservations pour le Vatican sont rapidement indisponibles en raison d'une forte demande. Cette information est bien mentionnée sur notre descriptif. Nous ne pouvons malheureusement pas garantir la disponibilité.

    Nous invitons toujours nos clients à se rendre sur place afin de suivre les potentiels désistements mais cela ne garantit en rien la disponibilité.

    Aucun remboursement ne sera possible.

    Bien cordialement,
    L'équipe Ceetiz.
  • 3 jours et demi à ROME pour la première fois. Le pass à 129 euros contient TROP d'éléments pour tous les faire en si peu de temps. Je NE recommande PAS DU TOUT. En détail : nous avons pu visiter les musées du Vatican mais pas la Basilique Saint Pierre ( file d'attente de + 2 heures , même en ayant réservé à l'avance) . Le Carcer Tullianum ferme à 16h30 , donc pas visité. Le bus Hop-on Hop-Off est lent, s'arrête trop longtemps à chaque arrêt. Nous l'avons testé une seule fois. Cela a suffit! Le seul jour où nous avons réussi à réserver pour le Colisée , il pleuvait fortement sans cesse. Il nous était difficile d'apprécier ce colosse, nos pensées revenant sans cesse vers un chocolat chaud ! Les visites que nous avons le + apprécié n'étaient pas dans ce pass . Il s'agit du Palazzo Massimo et des termes Di Diocleziano.

    Bonjour Céline,

    Merci de partager votre expérience !

    Le pass Rome propose en effet une multitude de visites, d'entrées aux Musées et d'autres prestations afin de s'adapter aux envies de chacun. Nous préconisons de faire un programme afin de sélectionner les activités souhaitées sur place.
    En effet, il est impossible de tout faire sur un séjour dans la mesure où cette destination regorge de lieux, de musées et de tout autre visite.

    Nous sommes navrés qu'il ait plu durant votre visite du Colisée, la météo étant malheureusement un facteur que Ceetiz ne peut pas anticiper.

    Concernant le Hop On Hop Off, le but est de découvrir de manière large la ville et les arrêts sont multiples afin de permettre aux clients de monter et descendre à leur aise.

    Nous espérons que vous avez tout de même apprécié la découverte de Rome.

    Bien cordialement,
    L'équipe Ceetiz.
