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.

Fantastic and informative tour. Magda, our tour guide, was fantastic. Would highly recommend.
