Great tour. Recommended. I had no idea there was so much to see in the Diocletian baths museum and Palazzo Massimo -wonderful statues /mosaics /funerary urns etc. Price includes access for a week and it is well worth a repeat visit to the museums as there is too much to take in on one visit

We thought we had seen all the major sites in Rome after 5 previous visits, but we were wrong. Theses sites were artistically and historically fantastic, and Lucy was very knowledgeable about them. She also went out of her way to make the tour both meaningful and enjoyable.

Fue fantastico visitar 4 diferentes museos con la misma entrada. Mi favorido fue las Termas de Diocleziano. Pero también me gustó admirar las estatuas antiguas en Palacio Altemps. Muy interesante el recorrido andando por Roma con la aplicación audio guía para el móvil.

Extremely knowledgeable. Brings passion to her explanations.Also not just an explanation of particular works of art or structures but also interesting and necessary context in intellectual, historical, and cultural terms.

Both places are must-sees in Rome. The tour was excellent and gave us a lot of interesting information.
