Tiber Boat Cruise

Is it worth a boat trip on the Tiber, either dinner cruise or simply sightseeing? Which cruise is best? We'll be there in early Oct.

Thanks.

Not worth it at all- the Tiber does run through the city but has very high walls and you can see nothing- it would be a very unattractive , uneventful evening. I think the locals here would tell you to be very suspect of any company even offering any such thing.

Agree. The flood prevention embankments are at least 30 feet high. The only thing you would see besides the walls would be the bridges. Use that money on a lovely dinner outside in a piazza.

Thoroughly agree with the above, for a view have dinner at a roof top restaurant. Type 'roof top restaurant' in the search bar above the posts, there are many.

Only once out of the city and on the way down to Ostia - a service which seems not to be running this year - do you get to see much more than...

Not truly awful, though not very wonderful!
