Georgia, our tour guide was really amazing. The history of the collosseum is fascinating and there were a lot of interesting stories to listen to. The lovely props that she used allowed us to form a good picture of what life was like in those days and how it was all built. There was a small child in our group and Georgia included her in everything to keep her entertained and even had puzzles for her to do.
