EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

ENTER THE COLOSSEUM DIRECTLY TO HEAR TALES OF GLADIATORS & VENGEFUL EMPERORS.

With privileged entrance you’ll skip long lines to gain immediate access to the Colosseum, where you’ll start your journey into Ancient Rome, led by our passionate and entertaining tour guides.

Follow your guide around the first and second levels of the Colosseum, as they tell you the stories that bring ancient ruins to life. You’ll marvel at the ingenuity of Ancient Roman engineers; hear tales of public executions and blood-thirsty crowds; and discover the secret history of this ancient amphitheater.

So much of what you see and hear of the Colosseum in films and books is untrue – distinguish fact from fiction with the help of your expert guide. They’ll teach you the real hand symbols used by emperors to condemn gladiators to death, shock you with the secret, behind-the-scenes shenanigans of gladiators and fascinate you with the other lesser-known uses of the Colosseum.

TAKE A WALK THROUGH ANCIENT ROME AT THE ROMAN FORUM & PALATINE HILL.

Your Colosseum tour will teach about more than just gladiators. You’ll learn about everyday life in Ancient Rome too: A lesson which extends to the next stop on our journey – the Roman Forum. Here you’ll encounter the stores of moneylenders; the final resting place of Julius Caesar; the incredible Arch of Constantine; and the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, whose namesake were charged with keeping the sacred flame alive, plus the grave responsibility of bestowing clemency on men condemned to death.

We’ll also visit the Palatine Hill; the birthplace of Ancient Rome and the location of some of its oldest and most impressive ruins. Learn the legend of twins Remus & Romulus, found and raised by a shewolf. They may seem like old and distant stories, but with the help of your guide you’ll gain a real understanding of how the Roman Empire has impacted the world you know today – and even your own day-to-day life!

EASY, ENGAGING, ENTERTAINING.

We’re passionate about the Colosseum and Ancient Rome and about sharing that history with you, so we’ve worked hard to build a team of only the best, most engaging tour guides. With five-star ratings on TripAdvisor, we’re confident that they’re the perfect hosts to help you get the most from your Colosseum tour. With small groups of 15 people or fewer, you’ll find them easy to engage with while headsets make them easy to hear at all times and impossible to lose.

You could visit the Colosseum on your own but we guarantee that you’ll get so much more from your time if you take a walk with us; not just seeing Ancient Rome but really experiencing it.

Guide with a lot of knowledge and a passion for what he talked about.
Francesco was incredible. You can tell he has a genuine love of the history and the city. Highly recommend him.
Lovely tour guide who was very knowledgeable and informative. Really enjoyed the tour
The guide was excellent. He was an archeologist and was very enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. Be prepared to climb many steep stairs, since this tour involves lots of elevation change. Again, an excellent tour and I highly recommend it.
Julietta has a great sense of humor and I learned a lot from her!
We were totally pleased with our tour and the guide. We could not have asked for more. We are also highly pleased with the flexibility of your company that allowed us to move our tours to accommodate changes in our schedule. Tremendous company!

Andrea was a wonderful guide. He did an amazing job. Grazie.

Excellent tour guide with a great history knowledge and with very good attitude to the group.
Fernando was a wonderful guide, professional, personable and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. He is an archeologist with first hand knowledge of the digs that were done at the Forum and Colosseum. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in Ancient Rome.
I did a similar tour in 2008 when I was in Rome and I felt this definitely surpassed that one! The tour guide was well informed and went at a good pace for all of us. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Luciana was fabulous, so incredible knowledgeable and interesting. I would recommend this tour 100% and hope to take it again next time in Rome. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Again, great tour and great guide! Alessia was very knowledgable and gave us lots of history/perspective on the stories of old Rome.
Very informative and enjoyable tour!
Luciana covered the sights with knowledge and efficiency. Our group was small, but Luciana took the time to learn each of our names.
Francesca was absolutely spectacular and made the tour a spectacular experience. She was incredibly knowledgeable and really brought the history of Rome to life. I will definitely ask for her tour next time we are in Rome!!!! This was the highlight of our trip! Todd from Seattle.
Very informative, knowledgeable- and small group was a must!!
Although there were probably bless with her mic for the first part they met her and replaced it after we left the colosseum. It was fine thereafter. She was knowledgeable and humorous. Money well spent.
Excellent tour and beyond excellent guide. She really made the Roman world come alive. We are so glad that we took all 3 tours. Thank you Walks of Italy.
Took two tours with you guys. I wish there was a way to work in time for the gift shops.
Luigi was an excellent tour guide.
Loved it.
The tour with our guide was excellent - she was very knowledgeable and made the tour a joy. I will definitely recommend your service to friends who travel to Rome.
She was amazing! Very knowledgeable, very accommodating and so passionate. We loved her tour very much❣
Guido was a superb guide for our visit. His extensive knowledge, humor, and accessibility to having people ask questions while keeping the tour moving along was wonderful. One of the highlight of our trip, Would definitely recommend.
Bruno was our guide and was fantastic. EXTRMELY knowledgeable and made the tour the highlight of my trip to Rome. I really thoroughly enjoyed it and learned a ton. Incredible job.
Wonderful tour! Tour guide was excellent!
Our guide was great -- she was very knowledgeable and had lot's of interesting things to point out and keep things fun. I would definitely recommend it.
Our guide and walking tour was wonderful. Guide even provided, as we asked, for a couple resturant suggestions. We tried both and both were terrific. We would do it again in a minute. Thank you! Jim
Fascinating story telling
Our guide was Lenora and and she did an excellent job explaining every detail of this tour. Extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any question our group asked. Loved her sense of humor and appreciate how she is so proud of Rome and all its beauty. Five stars!
All went very well. Our guide was extremely informative and communicated very well. Would recommend your tours to,any friend
Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. We enjoyed our time together very much and learned a lot. Thank you!
Anna was a delightful guide, friendly and personable, she conveyed an enthusiasm for her subject and was extremely knowledgeable.
Excellent tour. Anna was great. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.
Incredible team.
Bruno was excellent.
Fantastic tour with Guido! He provided a great deal of historical information and had visual aids to show renderings of what structures may have looked like. A very pleasant tour!
Our guide was awesome. We were very grateful for her tour.
Sylvia did an amazing job- we throroughly enjoyed our tour! She was so knowledgeable - would highly recommend!
Tour guide was excellent. So informative thay some of us were on information overload. But that was us, not our guide. It is definitely the way not to just see, but to understand what one is seeing and understand to some degree the history. Would definitely do it again.
I was blown away by everything. |Our tour guide was obviously well studied in history. She made the tour very interesting. Was well worth the money for sure.
The tour was fantastic! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the sites we saw and all things Rome in general. When we plan another trip to Rome or anywhere in Italy that Walks of Italy provides tours, we will be sure to book another great tour! Thanks for showing us the sites!
We thought the tour was fantastic. Bruno did an excellent job. Even when a downpour stalled our tour of the Forum for a while, he still kept us interested and entertained with stories and historical information til the weather calmed.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. If anything, she imparted TOO MUCH information, and made it hard to grasp the high points. When traveling in Rome and taking all of it in, sometimes less is more. She gave us more +.
We like the tour and will refer your tour to our friend who visit Rome in the future, thanks to your tour guide team from United State of America tourist.
Great tour. Fun and very interesting!
Our guide (I don't remember her name) had a great personality and told us very interesting stories! Great work! Very satisfied!
Ferdinando was very knowledgable and made for a memorable tour. I will definitely recommend him to others in the future.
Angela was terrific. She was so knowledgable, enthusiastic, friendly and humorous, myself and my family were very pleased and thankful that she led our tour.
Francesca did great, especially under rainy conditions, very enjoyable!
Mariella was amazing!! The best tour of all.
Alessia was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I enjoyed her insights especially about the Palatine Hill. She took the time to find my wife a place to sit while she spoke if possible.
Anna was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She spoke excellent English and was very easy to understand. We learned so much.
Fantastic!
Emma was fantastic - it was the highlight of our time in Rome!
Very good tour. The guide Julietta had excellent sense of humour. Many thanks!
Guide was very knowledgable. Very nice tour.
Excellent Tour with an excellent tour guide.
Engrossing tour from beginning to end. Silvia was both entertaining and fully knowledgeable on all historic fact.
Enza was very knowledgable and pleasant. We particularly appreciated the pictures she showed us to illustrate how the sites would have looked originally.
Thank you for a great tour.
Great tour!
Larissa was a wonderful guide. Highly educated in history and archaeology. Very informative tour with lots of details we would not otherwise have known.
Mariana was very knowledgeable and put info across in an interesting but lighthearted where appropriate.
We were very happy with our tour and with Doriana. She was very well informed and shared her passion for archeology with us.
Great tour with Francesco. As I briefly studied art history myself, I was impressed by his knowledge and his presentation. Francesco can talk (art) history to me anytime! Caroline
Excellent information. Francesca was enthusiastic, learned everyone's names, and made sure all our questions were answered. She even was conscious of the heat and shade so that we were comfortable while we enjoyed the tour.
Very informative
Great tour, it was amazing,
I forget our guide's name but she was great! Extremely knowledgeable and also a lot of fun.
Our tour guide was wonderful. We'd highly recommend this tour!
useful and a great experience. thanks.
Guide would do well to emulate those in Berlin. No one in Berlin is proud of Dachau - the Germans admit the failures in their past. Yet guides in Rome are proud of sites like the Coliseum.
Again, guide was very knowledgable and interacted very positively with group. Loved the tour.
We had a tremendous time on the tour. We will recommend Maurizio and Walks of Italy to all we know. Thank you!!
This tour is worth every penny. Full of facts and the pace is just right. Our tour guide was great and very professional. This is the best way to see the Colloseum , Roman Forum and the Palstine Hill. Highly recommended also
Luigi was excellent, we had a great time, We also took tour for the Sistine Chapel the next morning and only regret was we wanted to have Luigi again as our guide. If somehow you can add in a guide request? We would have enjoyed the walk more with him as our guide through the Sistine Chapel.
Grwat guide, she was very knowledgable about the history of Rome. Great tour!
Ferdinando was an excellent, educated guide with an excellent level of detail. As an architect and urban designer, he answered all questions I had and covered the topics well.
Maria was an enthusiastc, informative and entertaining guide. The small group size and headsets made it easy to keep up. A most enjoyable afternoon.
The tour was very good. The guide was also good. He was not as great as other guides that I have had.
Laura was wonderful!
Francisco was amazing. We learned so much and his love for Rome was evident in the way he presented the material. History came alive!
Our guide was great! We learned so much.
The guide was great and the information she shared was most educational
Luigi brought the Colosseum and Ancient Rome to life for us - thoroughly enjoyed. Recommended to others we have met along our way traveling through Italy.
Thoroughly enjoyed Laura's manner, knowledge and presentation! Would recommend to anyone and did tell friends already. We got a lot out of our time with her tour. Also, the registration, meeting and start were nicely organized. Thank you!
Terrific!
Camilla was a great guide. Her knowledge of history and the sites was beyond comprehensive. I can't imagine how we could have experienced the sites without her guidance.
We have really enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Rome!
Francesca was a great guide, very knowledgeable
Ivana was fantastic. I would go on any tour she led.
Wonderful tour. Loved our guide!
Enza our guide was brilliant - she was knowledgable and very personable. We went on a tour yesterday to Tivoli but our tour round the forum was better organised and enjoyable.
Our guide was wonderful!! She was cheerful and so very knowledgeable! I would highly recommend this tour!
Excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable and interesting.
Greatly enjoyed the tour and the sites, Sylvia was funny with a dry sense of humor that we appreciated. The pace was good and we chose another Walks of Italy tour because of this experience.
The tour guides were very helpful and informative. I learned so much! A great experience
Very information, friendly, and responsive guide. Enjoyed it very much at and would readily recommend to others.
She was excellent. Just the right amount of information and some fun facts too. Really enjoyed the tour!
So helpful and full of information. I think her name was Lucianna not Giovanni. But really good tour and really gave it a personal touch - she asked about each of us (names and where we were from) - and actually remembered and engaged us as a group
Great guide who blended interesting information and stories with breaks. We recommended it to our friends. Fantastic.
Tour guide was pleasant and very enthusiastic! Enjoyed tour
Emma was amazing-smart, energetic and passionate. My favorite of the 3 tour guides. It was my problem as an American having trouble understanding her sometimes.
She brought humour, but also seemed a little tired. She had probably done it before.
We thought this tour was excellent! The guide was extremely knowledgeable, and his presentation was on point! Thank you so much!!
An excellent and knowledgeable guide who clearly has a passion for Rome and its history. He was able to show us some interesting spots off the beaten path as well as the 'must see' bits. Overall a really good tour and highly recommended.
Excellent guide and tour!
Juliette was a fabulous guide - excellent knowledge & great sense of humor. Enjoyed the whole morning!
Juliet(a) was fantastic
Another great tour with another great guide - a historian who knew so much and was eager to share and answer questions, and suggest other similar sights we might want to visit (which we did, so appreciated the guidance!).
Wonderful tour, guide was fun and very knowledgeable. We loved it.
Our tour guide GiGi was amazing! He was able to bring history to life with his stories and we loved his humour. He had the ability to capture our complete attention for the whole tour and the time flew by. Highly recommend this tour and GiGi!
Great tour, awesome guide
Very good tour!
Fantastic guide! Really enjoyed it.
Wonderful!
Our guide was wonderful, and we will use her again when we are in Rome!
Guilietta was outstanding. There were four of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We learned so much and had fun at the same time. Thanks!
Guide was very informative and tour was very extensive with stories of the area and buildings
Bruno is fantastic - he was extremely knowledgable and took the time to answer questions -- pointed out the best vantage points for photographs and we highly recommend this tour.
Great tour! The guide had lots of interesting stories and was humorous. She kept the tour engaging and fun and she solicited feedback from the group as the tour moved forward to make sure we were all enjoying our experience. I would highly recommend this guide to anyone!
Great guide and funny with it
Mariela was fantastic, knowledgeable and the perfect guide. I would have happily paid moreto just have her do a private tour- she wasTHAT good.
Well organised tour, very good knowledgeable guide, drew us in to feel the history. I'm not generally into history ,but she made me want to find out more. My husband enjoyed being able to hear with the headphones while taking time to take photos. Excellent tour. Thank you
As with our Vatican tour, the tour of the Forum and Colosseum was really well-executed by Julietta. We were delighted with her depth of knowledge and sense of humor. It was a marvelous tour. We cannot wait to take the next one. We are out of Italy now but hope to return soon.
Anna was a great guide. Very friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. She made the tour and the sights far better than going alone.
Bruno was excellent and a very enthusiastic guide.
Excellent!!
Andrea? was super, well spoken easy to listen to and engaging
Andrea was very informative and shared great stories. We had a lot of ground to cover, and he did a great job keeping things interesting.
More than expected. Excellent tour!
Great tour.. The checkin was very smooth and easy ... The lines were to be expected but Bruno was quick to guide us through them!!!
She was excellent
Bruno was an excellent highly knowledgeable guide with appreciation for using the time touring to maximum benefit!
She was wonderful! We were lucky enough to have her twice as a guide. So knowledgable and sweet. She was perfect!
Wonderful tour and Andrea was very informative. Thanks!
Our guide was lovely, knowledgeable and professional. We loved our tour and her!
The guide was very informative.... Information overload....
Camilla was a most charming and knowledgable guide. We saw places that few people go To. Wonderful tour!
Fantastic tour with our guide, Igor. He is caring, knowledgeable and entertaining. Your sound equipment is excellent quality. We could hear Igor the whole time.
Very knowledgeable guide!
Guido was FANTASTIC!!! The afternoon was PERFECT - Thank you
Anna was a charming and well informed guide. We particularly appreciated the way she superimposed the past and present with illuminating pictures which brought republican and imperial Rome to life.
Enjoyable tour, liked the humor the guide brought into it. Our teenagers enjoyed it as well and still talk about the "belly button of the universe" that we saw in the forum.
Amazing place enjoyed very much. Guido was lovely and knowledgable. A few little rest stops along the way would have been great.
Guido was an exceptionally knowledgable guide who clearly did additional research and added extra detail to the tour. He was very friendly and one of the best guides we had during our two weeks in Italy.
Mr. T delivered a great tour. He was not only deeply knowledgeable about the sites we visited, but also very entertaining.
Great tour and great guide. She really brought the tour to life with her lively commentary. Loved her sense of humour
Our guide was wonderful and so interesting.
Very informative, three hour tour.
Marianna was fabulous!! She made it all so clear, connecting centuries of info and stories. She made our tour so educational. Many thanks to her!
Mariana was very pleasant and informative. She did a great job of moving our tour at nice, even, unhurried pace.
Enjoyed the tour a lot. Anna is very nice, very personable and make the tour very interesting. Would highly recommend it to my friends.
Very informative guide who gels well with the group. Paced the walk extremely Well, very professional and friendly. An asset to your company and for the tourists who go with her
This was a great tour and the guide was informative, personable and very attentive to the group. We will definitely recommend both this and the Pristine Sistine Tours. Thank you for enhancing our time in Rome.
This tour was our favourite tour during our holiday in Rome. The Colosseum is an incredible destination but Tanguy was a great guide too - entertaining and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome. Many thanks.
Luciana was an amazing guide. So personable, amazing memory for peoples names. She was able to answer any question, always had her people in mind during the tour. Just fantastic. I would highly recommend this tour and especially Luciana to anyone!!!
Our tour was brilliant. Leitizia was very engaging and informative. She had fantastic historical knowledge and kept us interested for the whole 3 hours even my 14 year old Son. Thank you I wouldn't have learnt anything on my own
We had Anna again -lucky us!! And we scored entrance into he Colosseum stage - very special!! It was s long your with lots of walking and climbing, but we saw everything in just under 4 hours. We would never have understood the importance of the palatine hill if not for Anna. Highly recommend !!
Outstanding, Francesca is extremely knowledgable!
It was wonderful taking the tour with John who was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. We had taken other tours where it was a bit difficult to understand the accent of the guide. The sights were amazing!
It was excellent! And our guide - I think his name is Luigi - was great. Like a very cool college professor.
Anna was fantastic. A treasure of information. Cannot commend her highly enough
Francesco is extremely knowledgable and we enjoyed it very much!!
Vanessa was a wonderful, knowledgable tour guide who connected with each person on the tour. I souls enthusiastically recommend the tour to others.
It is a really excellent tour. Our guide, Francesco, was very informative, friendly and kept to a good pace. We don't think that we could have covered so much history, with the depth of understanding that we received from Francesco by ourselves. Please pass on our sincere appreciation.
Loved Uta!!
Elena was a great guide plenty of info about everything not just the colosseum even great tips on where to eat in Rome. Highly recommended. She took photos for us and tried her hardest to keep us out of the sun.
Simona was incredible and the tour was wonderful.
Vanessa was sweet, well educated and spoke clear English. Will recommend a walks of Italy tour to friends and family. Thank you
Very Nice and informative but yet relaxed tour with our amazing guide Maristella Best regards Thomas
We were very happy with our tour and tour guide. He was interesting, knowledgeable, funny and talked enough without talking too much. Would definitely recommend your group to friends & family.
Very, very knowledgable and approachable
Elena was great - knowledgable , upbeat with a very hot low energy group
Great guide. However I wished she had spoke more about what actually happens in the Colloseum and explained what gladiators did how they were chosen etc. we had teenagers with us on tour and felt she assumed they had seen mainstream movies or knew more than they did.
Juliette was such a great tour guide! She was passionate and informed - and I learned so much.
Guide was excellent!! 1st class operation!!!
We loved this tour!! Cecelia was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the area and its history. We have recommended Walks of Italy to other people we have met on our trip.
Do not let Luigi go - ever! he showed everything, and more, at a perfect pace. His knowledge and passion were unbeatable - we have recommended this tour already to 3 couples from Australia who will be in Rome soon. Excellent value for money - thank you so much.
Our guide was incredibly knowledgable, personable, and enthusiastic. I could not be any more happy with my experience.
The guide made the visit very enjoyable.
Marianna was a great guide and provided an entertaining narrative as we walked through these amazing sites. Even though it was a lengthy 3 hr tour in very hot weather our kids were interested and time went fast. Highly recommend!
Doriana was informed and concise.
Excellent tour! We loved our guide who shared with us many fascinating stories about the history of this ancient treasure!
Everything was perfect, thank you so much!!
The tour was great as well as the tour guide Maria. She was well informed, and accommodated. We really enjoy our tour.
Luigi was very informative! The tour should allow a brief time to purcahse souvenirs.
Luigi was fantastic. Answered every question asked. Luigi was informative, professional and gracious.. Great representative for Walks of Italy
Lugin was knowledgeable, engaging and informative. He took the time to explain and answer questions.
We loved Luigi!!
I really enjoyed the tour with Claudia, her knowledge of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill was fascinating, we especially liked the surprise visit to the main floor of the Colosseum!! Thank you!!
Francesca was EXCELLENT. We had three grandchildren nine and under. She was patient and very good with the children. I highly recommend the tour and Francesca.
Luca did a great job! Knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Totally enjoyed the tour. We've been to Rome before but feel like we definitely learned new things/more because of this tour

Thank you so much. We really enjoyed the tour. The information was great and the tour guide very thoughtful.
Wonderful! Your guides are all amazing!
Excellent guide! She was very entertaining, as well.
Marta was amazing! I'm not a history fan, and she somehow had me hooked on everything she was teaching us. The Roman Forum and the Colosseum were magical. I especially appreciate how she managed to make the tour very family friendly by getting the kids to participate.
We enjoyed the tour venue. Mariana seemed not as accommodating to the group as a whole. Did not bring group together as well as Luciana. She knew her facts but tended to repeat herself to fill in the time. Visual pictures were a plus.
Fantastic tour with a very informative and entertaining guide.
Jowita was a most extraordinary guide. Very knowledgeable, communicates well and fun. Thanks very much
We were very pleased w/ our tour, very informative. Elisa was very knowledgeable, pleasant and an excellent guide. So much history and sha never once stumbled for the whole 3 hrs!!! Amazing!! would gladly do it again, in cooler weather!! Sincerely, Anna Cretz
Great experience and great tour...our guide was amazing and was very knowledgeable.
Larissa was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English. Did a great job and a very good tour!!
Dorianna is an excellent guide, we were so blessed to have an archaeologist be our guide. She was so knowledgeable and passionate in what she does and my whole family enjoyed and learned so much. I have toured this on my own before, but having your private guide made this tour infinitely better!
She was very knowledgable and extremely smart. I appreciated her kindness and her approach. Her English was better than mine. I am very happy we ended up with her as our guide.
Our guide was very informative.
Nice balance of hitting the high spots but given plenty of info.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour guide Doriana. Her first hand experience in archeological excavations, excitement, not to mention her PhD in Archeology made for a wonderful tour. She had our attention before we left the meeting point. We highly recommend Doriana.
Seeing the Forum and Palantine through the eyes of such a knowledgeable guide made our tour exceptional.
Sergio was very knowledgeable.
Our guide was wonderful. Enjoyed the tour immensely!
Guido was excellent. We learned so much on this tour. I would definitely go again. 5 stars +
Very nice tour and wonderful guide. I will recommend to friends.
Our guide was so informative and entertaining. We would never have gotten so much out of seeing the colosseum and Palatine Hill without him! Plus, we skipped the long lines......that alone was worth it! :)
Excellent tour. Great information and explaination. Really pleasant, knowegable and helpful guide. Highly recommended. Thank you.
Very interesting tour with a guide that could tell us all we wanted to know and had a very nice book to show us before and after pictures to make things even clearer.
Luigi was great!!!!!
Once again, your tour guides are superb. Camellia was so knowledgeable, pleasant and patient. I will always book tours from our company and defenitly recommend to others.
The guide was excellent. My girlfriend was very ill due to the heat and jetlag, so we only stayed for an hour of our tour before we had to leave. Our tour guide was very gracious. I wish very much that we could have finished the rest kf the tour. :(
Really enjoyed our tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly.
Our guide was not Andrea - it was a gentleman with blonde hair, sorry I do not remember his name but he was quite good and informative!
Bruno was wonderful! We had a great tour.
He was very knowledgeable, and he kept the tour moving at a good rate.
Our guide Muriel was passionate about her knowldge and work ax a geologist. Brovissimo ! We loved her
The guide was amazing, he explained so much and could answer any question.
We were so fortunate to have 2 amazing tour guides. Francesca was incredibly engaging, brilliant and thoughtful. We enjoyed her talks tremendously. I can't say enough about her or the tour. Walks of Italy is definitely the way to go.
Alessandra was excellent!
Louisa covered so much information! We really enjoyed our tour.
It was great. We enjoyed it very much
Marta was a wonderful guide! We had a great experience with Walks of Italy - thank you!
Mariana was wonderful! It was an incredibly hot day in Roma but she paced the group so well, allotting for breaks and seeking shade. She spoke clearly and the headsets worked well. Our group was very impressed and enjoyed this tour. It was one of the highlights of our trip!
The guide was very considerate towards the group members doing all he could to alleviate the very hot climatic conditions. He found shade wherever he could and walked at a very comfortable pace. He was also very knowledgeable and added a touch of humour to his narration.
Francesca was fantastic!!!
Vincenzo was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, interesting and funny. Also made sure the group was not standing in the sun for too long. We had a fantastic time.
Our guide was wonderful and we learned so much! We loved the headsets, and the pace of the tour was perfect. Highly recommend this tour!!
Guide was delightful, well informed, responsive to the groups questions, the group needs!!!!! Excellent tour. Wished we had been able to go under the colosseum in this tour!!!
Our guide, Guido, was well informed and well prepared. He made ancient Rome come alive for us.
The guide was great,very informative. Trip up the Palatine Hill was exhausting in the heat and not very interesting. I wish more time could have been spent in the Forum
Julietta was our second tour guide on our second tour. Another wonderful experience!
Marianna was fantastic! The tour was incredibly informative, and well worth it!

Excellent guide, very informative and friendly. I would consider them for future tours.
Marianna was so nice and full of information! We really appreciated all she was able to tell us about life at the colosseum. We had our baby on the tour and she was very kind in watching out for us and making sure I was able to keep up- even with all the stairs! Fabulous guide!
