Amazing! We entered the Colosseum using the way gladiators would enter, onto the floor of the Colosseum. It was very special. When you entered it was a wow moment. The guide Francesca was very knowledgeable and told us all about seating arrangements and what went happened during the games. She escorted us around different parts of the Colosseum, telling us different aspects of the people who would have sat there. Be prepared as stairs are very steep. We spent about 1.5 hours in the Colosseum and then went to the Roman Forum opposite were we spent over an hour. This site was huge so it was great to have a guided tour. Francesca stimulated our imagination and explained about many of the different areas. We went into the Temple of Vesta, which I wanted to see, and she explained all about Vesta and the Vestal Virgins. We then walked up to Pallatine Hill. This was not as steep but was still a climb. Once up, the view from there was amazing. Francesca again was very informative and explained different areas and what they were.

This is the second time I've taken this tour and if I ever get the chance I will take it for a 3rd time. The guides are fantastic and so knowledgeable. There is more to see and something new to learn every time. I highly recommend.

Very HOT!!!, though I was back in Texas. Our guild was fantastic. He was a US individual who moved to Italy and married and decided to stay. Due to the weather, he advised us to take small rest and water breaks. The tour was at 2pm. Try to go early in the AM or late PM if you are traveling in July.

This tour was the perfect choice to allow us to see these 3 ancient sites Colosseum, Forum, Palatine Hill. Tour was just long enough to enjoy and not feel rushed. We had time at the end to explore the Palatine hill museum as well. Elizabetha was an excellent, enthusiastic guide, and an archeologist by training. I am certain my daughter and I would not have appreciated what we saw as much, without our guide's excellent narrative and stories. I had been to Rome 30 years prior, but felt I never really appreciated world history as I did after this day. We were outside for the entire tour and the weather was perfect for a January day.
