Has Anyone Done- Under the Bridges of Rome- Boat Tour

I found some info on a boat tour of the Tevere,
from the Cooperativa il sogno in Rome .

While most of the 13 bridges one passes under are fairly modern (1800s or so)
some of course are troppo vecchio!

But, our purpose would be more just a cool way to get around and see more of Rome.

My question is
has anyone done this?
Also, I have e-mailed il sogno 3 times over the past couple months and have not gotten a reply.
It seems as if they recommend reservations ?

Thank you for any info!

I read about this in NYTimes a couple of weeks ago in their Sunday travel section. Apparently you can do a tour or use a hop-on-hop off feature. The latter would seem to expand enormously the opportunities to get around the city more easily given that metro stops are so few and far between.

this is the gist of the info that was in the NY Times:
These water buses cruise the Tiber, passing under bridges some of which date back to Roman times. You can pay for one trip, or a day pass.
The full circuit includes 8 stops, including Isola Tiberina and Castel Sant?Angelo.

There is a separate boat line for 75-minute tours. There is also a combination of boat ride plus minibus tour of sights. Both start at Ponte Sant?Angelo, two tours start in the morning, two in the afternoon. Finally, dinner cruises are available.

For information, www.battellidiroma.it

thank you Jm and Elaine.

I religiously bought the
Sunday NY Times for decades, even when my children were young and I would end up reading the Times on Wednesday,
but when it hit $4 I buy it sporadicly

figures the week I don't

I so much appreciate your info, and I will go to this other website.

It seems like sucha cool way to see some of the city.

thanks again!!!!!

Jm and Elaine- Wow, , went to the website and it is great
(even though most of the pages are "under construction" )
And you are correct Jm in the fact this could be used as a way to get around, using an all day pass as Elaine mentioned.
We will be staying up near
P. Sant Angelo , but the kids REALLY love the Campodi Fiori and P.Navona area.
so this will be a good way to get around, if the cost is not too much.

Again, thanks for the info, it was exactly what I needed.
