This I would recommend the first day of your visit to Rome and we'll worth it. My friend and I where taken around places you would not see on an open top bus. The guide was very knowledgeable and made it very interesting the whole trip. Stopped for a quick coffee and off we went again. Excellent.

The app really easy to down load. Step by step talk from outside to the inside. You can listen as many times you want and go back to different sections. would recommend

Not sure if it’s easier/faster with get your guide or just purchasing the audio guide (if wanted) at the site itself as there isn’t an entrance fee.

Pantheon. We had purchased an audio app that gave us all the details of the Pantheon which was worth doing as it was only about 5 AUD.

Last minute ordering of the audio guide was very easy to use
