About
The Colosseum is one of the most iconic structures of the planet. This tour is focused on the ground floor and first level of this famous amphitheater: your guide will illustrate its awe-inspiring structure, recreating the days when it was filled with the sounds of roaring animals and crowds, and the clashing swords of gladiators. If time permits, you will also be taken to admire the impressive Arch of Constantine. The Ancient Roman Forum and Imperial Forum were the political and commercial heart of ancient Rome. You will see the temples, monuments and civic buildings built by the largest power in the western world and you will climb the Palatine, one of the most ancient parts of the city that has been called "the first nucleus of the Roman Empire".

Excellent Tour Guide and Driver
Jul. 2019
This was our first trip to Rome so we wanted a "snapshot" full day tour of all the main monuments etc. Our guide Rose was really excellent and took time to explain the history of everything that we saw. She also took the time to walk us (in searing heat) to the attractions and Paulo (our driver) was at the closest point to pick us up. The air conditioned car was very comfortable. Both Rose and Paulo were very professional and I would definitely recommend them for a superb tour of the city.

Beautiful site, horrible tour guide
Jun. 2019 • Friends
The Colosseum and the Forum were amazing, the architecture and history was fascinating to see in person. We did the tour June 18, 2019 at 8:15. The hotel pick up at meeting the tour was easy and on time. The problem was with the tour guide. She just had her points of interests and dialog and moved. Often she didnt even wait for the 10 people. In our case, 3 of us were left behind of 10 minutes at a security check point because she didnt bother to wait. She would say her speech and move on, no time for questions or direction or watching the group. Having been on many tours all over the world, i would say the guide was one of the worst i've ever seen. A good guide keeps the group ( only 10) together, answers questions ( she didnt even ask if we had any, just moved/sprinted on). I think she knew the history and provided information, just horrible when it comes to logistics and facilitation of the group.
