I had a fantastic experience with our guide Azzurra. She is an archeologist and gave logical and succinct explanations of the vast amounts of Roman History necessary to understand these historical sites. I cannot recommend Azzurra more highly!

We went on a fantastic tour which was led by Eva who gave a very in depth and interesting insight to Ancient Rome. She was upbeat, enthusiastic, funny and made the tour a really enjoyable experience! She was always happy to answer any questions we had and made the whole tour extremely enjoyable. I can’t recommend doing this tour enough as we got to see the Colosseum and the Roman Forum with a guide who knew so much about the history. Thank you so much Eva!

We loved the tour, and especially loved our guide, Guilio, who is an archeologist and has worked at the coloseum!! The tour was engaging and entertaining and informational. Just perfect for us and our 11 year old. Fascinating. Loved skip the line access. A must-see. Ask for Guilio!!
