Private Tour: Imperial Rome Art History Walking Tour
Reviewed by: Denise N, July 2015
Wow, what an amazing day. Our guide Luca was incredible, blending archeological research with historical account. Our tour started on Palatine Hill as the Colloseum lines were mixed resulting in long waits even for those with passes. All the better as we explored Palatine Hill at a leisurely pace with very few other tourists. Upon our return to the Colloseum, Luca's experience with the confusing line system resulted in a very short wait for entrance.
Luca's knowledge was expansive and his courtesy for our comfort knew no bounds. A wonderful introduction to Roman history by a guide who is obviously passionate about his work and was able to continue with impeccable English even after my own English brain began to melt in the July heat. Thank you Luca.

Having a private quide massively enhanced out experience in the ancient city. Our guide Luca explained architectural structures and their social functions amongst the ruins. He made the very hot day manageable and enjoyable.

Luca was extraordinary. Amazing depth of knowledge. His English is excellent. A wonderful guide. The Coliseum part of the tour is awesome. I remember visiting in the early 80's and the Coliseum was in real disrepair. The difference is stunning. Luca pointed out so many cool yet subtle things that would go by unseen if they were not pointed out by a guide.
The Forum part of the tour requires some moderate walking and stair-climbing but is quite doable. A real shame that everyone pillaged this incredible bit of history over the years.
In summary, Luca was great and if you can afford it, this is the only way to see Imperial Rome.
