Mario led our group of 33 on an amazing tour of the Forum and Colosseum. He knew all the special things only a guide knows. I look forward to working with him again in 2019. I really recommend Mario for Roman tours.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
