My family had a tour of the ruins and coliseum with Marc last week and had a wonderful time. He was very knowledgeable and presented the information in an interesting way. I would definitely recommend him. Kara

It is necessary to book this tour at least 2 months before you go, easy to do on Vatican web site. A small group meets up after a security check, to the side of St Peter's, ask a Swiss Guard where to go. The guide leads you into a doorway at the side of the basilica and soon you are in a dark, warm and ancient place. Under St Peter's are mausoleums dating from very early Christian, and pre Christian times and the families buried there had rooms with doorways and windows, the walls are painted & the streets, which were of course on the surface when built, are paved. The guide gives you time to explore different rooms and enjoy the wall painings and mosaics. At length you reach the spot which is under the Pope's Altar and this is where the tomb of St Peter was discovered. The excavation of the whole area was mainly done during WW2 by refugees hidden in the Vatican. On coming out you find yourselves in the grotto area where Popes are buried. A most interesting & moving visit, well worth the preparation.

We used Marc of Key Rome Tours for our one day in Rome. He took us on a fabulous historic tour of the ancient city. . Marc is very easy to understand and makes the day thoroughly enjoyable. His knowledge and expression made our day one to remember.
