Karolina was so sweet, knowledgeable, and went at the perfect pace. We got to appreciate everything we saw and she had amazing information to share. This was a great way to familiarise ourselves with Rome - I recommend booking it for one of your first nights in the city.

This visit is really to be done and in the evening even if 6 p.m./9 p.m. would be more suitable. Our guide, César, was excellent, a real encyclopedia.
