Traveler Tips

  • "Wear comfortable shoes because you will be A LOT of walking and in the Summer it is VERY hot." See review
  • "Be aware that the tour is a little longer than most so bring water and a snack :) (we spent 3.5 hours but that might have been due to the bathroom break lines being so long)." See review

Fantastic guide!

I had a fantastic experience with our guide Azzurra. She is an archeologist and gave logical and succinct explanations of the vast amounts of Roman History necessary to understand these historical sites. I cannot recommend Azzurra more highly!

We went on a fantastic tour which was led by Eva who gave a very in depth and interesting insight to Ancient Rome. She was upbeat, enthusiastic, funny and made the tour a really enjoyable experience! She was always happy to answer any questions we had and made the whole tour extremely enjoyable. I can’t recommend doing this tour enough as we got to see the Colosseum and the Roman Forum with a guide who knew so much about the history. Thank you so much Eva!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.Our guide Dennis was very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable,making the tour very fun.Also as we were only a small group it felt more personal and it was easier to keep up with the tour.He even spent a bit of extra time to take our photograph in an ideal spot with the colleseum behind us.I would highly recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Rome.
