disappointing

They scheduled a visit to the Coliseum for the afternoon, as in winter it gets dark early, there was no time to go to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. We had to go back the other day I had booked for the Vatican. I mean, it messed up my schedule.

We really like skipping the lines!

We liked skipping lines and the other information was helpfil. Better than we would have done on our own.

Amazing insight into a bygone era!

Exceptional overview of the history surrounding Roman times 2000 years ago. What was happening at that time, who was ruling, layout of the city, why the Colleseum and other great structures were built. The Christians, the dilemmas, a load of interesting information was received. Thank you
