Full description
Enjoy a visit to the heart of ancient Rome, among its temples, meeting places, and triumphal arches that evoke images of senators, soldiers, emperors, and orators. Your expert guide will take you from the Colosseum to the Roman Forum and to the Palatine Hill, where you’ll see the Palace of the Emperors. This private guided 3-hour tour is priced for a group of up to 6 participants, and begins at the Colosseum, built by the Emperors of the Flavian Dynasty, and a site that over the centuries has become the symbol of Rome. Moving on, you’ll visit the site of the Forum, the area that witnessed the birth and development of Roman civilization. This was the political, social, religious, and economic heart of the Roman Republic. Some of the most ancient places of worship can be found at the Forum site, and it’s still possible to glimpse the remains of venerable temples. Following your visit to the Roman Forum area, you’ll continue on to the Palatine Hill, where the emperors of Rome lived.

Maria, our guide, was excellent. She kept my granddaughter’s interest , as well as mine, for the entire 3 hours of the tour. It was a sweltering summer day and she managed to find a lot of shade and avoid some of the crowds. Her english was perfect as was her knowledge of Italian history and historical monuments.

Une visite passionnante et enrichissante où il est impératif d’avoir un guide qui nous plonge dans l histoire. Notre guide Isabelle était vraiment top… je la recommande et merci à Emmanuele qui est la personne à contacter à Rome pour vos visites, un vrai professionnel.

8月中旬に行きました。 10:00ホテル集合、10:30コロッセオ入場、13:00解散。 まずスキップチケットがないと長蛇の列。暑いなかであの列を並ぶ気力はありません・・・。異常なほど並んでいて、あとであった別の日本人グループの方は、開場1時間前に行って並んで、それでも会場時間から30-60分は並んだと言っていました。 予約なしの列は常に進むわけではなく、予約客がある一定異常進んでからやっと入れるので、先頭でも入場を待っている人がいました。 スキップチケットのおかげで即入れて時間を有効活用できました。 また、そのほかのローマ施設はともかく、コロッセオはガイドがないとただ写真をとって終わりになるなと。 ガイドさんのおかげで、見所を効率的にまわれて、 凱旋門、フォロ・ロマーノ、パラティーノの丘、しっかり全て入場して解説してくれますし、個人グループガイドさんなので、疲れていそうであれば休憩を促してくれて、写真もバンバンとってくれてとても満足しています。 ガイドさんは何人かいるようで、予約後にオフィスの人から「この時間開始はどう?」とメールで連絡がきます。時間の都合が悪かったので私たちは希望の時間を伝えて、変えてもらいました。やり取りは英語です。オフィススタッフも親切な印象でした。ガイドしてくれた ビンセントさん(イタリア人 男性)は日本語もとても上手で、とても素敵なガイドさんでした。 注意としては、この価格はガイド料金だけなので、ホテルで待ち合わせた時に、スキップチケット分の料金として1人25ユーロ必要でした。
