This tour was split into two parts, so we had two different experiences. The first part of the tour was for the Colosseum. If you are visiting, it really makes sense to do a guided tour to understand what you are looking at. Our Colosseum...More

Julia was one of the best tour guides we’ve ever had. She was knowledgeable, interesting and funny. She was able to make the 4+ hours feel like 30 minutes. Would highly recommend her for any tours in Rome.
