We had a wonderful experience seeing the Palatine hill and the Roman forum. Our tour guide, I think his name was Danieli, was excellent. I have seen the Forum some 36 years ago but it was so much more special to have a guided tour. It is simply amazing to comprehend the technology that the ancient Romans possessed. I would highly recommend this activity.

We had a great time with our tour guide Claudia who was very sympathatic and caretaking. Claudia shared her broad knowledge about the roman history in a very easy going and funny way. We had a great time and can definitely recommend this amazing tour. Thank you Claudia!

There was no problem with priority entrance to the Coloseum although there was a long queue. There is no problem with entering the Roman Forum, because there weren't many people.

It was a very informative and great experience. Having the museums virtually empty on our visit was an awesome experience and the early breakfeast in the Vatican was great.

Our guide, Vasco, made a well presented tour with a dash of humor, which made the 3hour walk pass very quickly.
