Did you know that parts of the marble of the façade and of the interior were used in the construction of the Basilica of San Pietro and Palazzo Barberini? That it took 7 hours to fill the arena completely with water? That the famous film The Gladiator was shot in part in the Roman amphitheater of El Jem in Tunisia? You will have the opportunity to visit and learn about this important place without spending an entire day.

Giovanna added a personalised touch to the tour. Well informative and dedicated. The tour was well organised. I was lost in-between but the guide made sure that I reach Palatine hill without any trouble.

I was introduced to the company from my host at the Airbnb. They fit me in last minute and helped me find the group as I was a little lost from how big the colloseum is. He flagged me down linked me with the guide and we made it happen.
- The guide was fun and entertaining and took a couple of pictures for me as I was a solo traveler.
- they checked in at the end of the day to make sure I had a good tour
- they also helped us all get umbrellas and make sure our needs were met as it was slightly raining.
- the only suggestion I would make them is to make sure the guide has less going on toward the need of the tour. Making calls and multi tasking as the guide was a little offset at times. But he did make sure we were at viewpoint when he had calls best he could.

Good group and anyone who books with them are in good hands.

The whole experience was great! Easy to find where the tour was, very personable guy (who spoke 7 languages) entertaining us while we waited for our tour to start and easy to get into the colosseum. The tour was informative enough without being boring or an overload and we were left to explore on our own at the end of the tour!

The tour was great! It gave a brief, salient overview of the history of the Roman Empire and important facts of the Coliseum without getting overly mired in details. Giovanna was excellent!
