    Very interesting tour and made alive thanks to the very erudite guide who managed to immerse us in the daily life of ancient Rome. Indeed the visit of the Roman forum without a guide would be of no interest. At the Colosseum he described us how it was a show in the arena and in the stands. we were delighted with this visit Thanks to Giuseppe De Spirito our guide

    We were lucky enough to fall for Giuseppe! A super interesting guide who made us discover the Colosseum and its surroundings at our own pace. He took care of us, water fountain, small breaks when things got a little too high for us. The guide was there only for us, we were not in a large group. He told us lots of crisp little anecdotes. We have adored !

    Our planes meeting at 8:30 am, We were notified 5 minutes before the start of the activity that the guide was not present because he was in pain. We waited 1h30 for a new Ns guide to be made available. Fortunately, the latter was excellent which Ns temporarily made us forget this inconvenience. Otherwise the activity in itself is very good and the latter is recommended.
