Super tour, because of the Wonderful guide Alexandra. She had been an archaeologist in Rome, and knew so much information and stories about the Colosseum, Roman forum etc. Bring a bottle of water and you can refill from many water fonts along the way. Alexandra answered all questions and at the end even gave us some suggestions of restaurants in the vicinity. Would highly recommend Alex as a guide.

Our guide Fabritzio was outstanding! He knew so much about all the sites we were at and he even brought a book with him so we could see what the places looked like in their prime! He was super fun and friendly too - we’ll def use him again for sure!!!!!

Absolutely loved our tour of the colloseum, Roman forum and palatine hill. Would definitely recommend seeing with a guide, ours gave us so much interesting information and facts. Without this you might as well just be looking at a pile of rocks. You can buy tickets on the day but queues are large so would recommend booking in advance. All areas of the tour were really interesting and the views from the palatine hill are immense, great photo opportunities.
