At the end of the tour, get ready for some science and astronomy, as you will walk in the Basilica of Santa Maria degli Angeli, housing a unique planetary sundial, built by 17th-century astronomers for the Pope to calculate the perfect sequence of day and night throughout the seasons.

The tour was great. The guide wue accompanied us and is very knowledgeable of the Roman History and knows the collection of the three places visited. We spent a pleasant and productive morning in places that are really worth it! I highly recommend this tour, especially to anyone who wants to discover what the city can offer besides the Vatican and the Colosseum! Very recommended !!!

Great tour. Recommended. I had no idea there was so much to see in the Diocletian baths museum and Palazzo Massimo -wonderful statues /mosaics /funerary urns etc. Price includes access for a week and it is well worth a repeat visit to the museums as there is too much to take in on one visit

Fue fantastico visitar 4 diferentes museos con la misma entrada. Mi favorido fue las Termas de Diocleziano. Pero también me gustó admirar las estatuas antiguas en Palacio Altemps. Muy interesante el recorrido andando por Roma con la aplicación audio guía para el móvil.

Extremely knowledgeable. Brings passion to her explanations.Also not just an explanation of particular works of art or structures but also interesting and necessary context in intellectual, historical, and cultural terms.
