This a great overview of central Rome. We would highly recommend this tour to all. The guide knew so much about the area, the history, the architecture, and had fun stories as well.

The museum tour has a strong focus on pagan art. I traveled halfway around the world for insight into my Catholic faith, but found the museum glorifying pagan gods from antiquity. I love that the museum includes art from antiquity but had hoped these pieces...More
