Tour Highlights

  • Step off the trodden trail for a “new” experience of Ancient Rome! Security gates, previously opened only for archaeologists and historians, will swing open for you on this Ancient Rome tour; allowing you exclusive access to the 1st century BC home of Rome’s first emperor, Augustus Caesar (nephew of Julius Caesar) and his formidable wife, Empress Livia Drusilla.

  • For many years archaeologists and preservationists have been hard at work restoring these ancient treasures: Shoring up the walls and recapturing the colors and details of 2000 year old fresco painting. The result is an archaeological complex, ready to be seen like never before. Be amongst the first to experience it as our handpicked guides bring history to life. Then continue with tales of gladiators and beasts on a guided Colosseum & Ancient Rome tour.

  • At the imperial houses, in a small group of 15 people or fewer, you’ll learn why they are, in fact, the world’s first “palaces.” Your group will be the only ones inside and you will be able to imagine the days when the world was ruled from here. Your Ancient Rome tour also continues to the Roman Forum and Colosseum, by-passing the regular entrance lines with pre-reserved tickets for a truly rounded view of life during that period.

EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

Casa di Augusto fresco on Walks of Italys VIP Ancient Rome Tour

VISIT THE NEWLY-OPENED HOME OF EMPEROR AUGUSTUS CAESAR — 100 YEARS OLDER THAN THE COLOSSEUM!

Beyond the well-traveled trail of the Palatine Hill lies a narrow walkway leading to one of the most important discoveries in the Eternal City: the home of the Roman Empire’s very first emperor, Augustus (Octavian) Caesar. For decades archaeologists have labored over the complex of buildings within the Casa di Augusto and the Casa di Livia, the home he built for his beloved wife and partner in power, the Empress Livia. The result is astounding, room after room of ancient fresco paintings have survived, the original colors still intact. Decorative figures, tricks of perspective, ceiling moldings, and floor tiles are all still there 2,000 years after their creation.

On this special access, VIP Ancient Rome tour you’ll walk where few visitors have walked before, even fewer than those who’ve been to the Colosseum underground. With your handpicked Walks of Italy guide, in a small group of 15 or fewer, you’ll travel back 2,000 years to the birth of the Roman Empire. You’ll learn how, in the aftermath of Julius Caesar’s assassination, Octavian formed an alliance to successfully avenge his uncle’s death and ultimately defeat Marc Antony and Cleopatra to consolidate power in himself. Best of all, you’ll hear the story from where Augustus lived: No crowds, no guards, no fuss.

The Colosseum on Walks of Italys VIP Ancient Rome Tour

EXPLORE THE COLOSSEUM, ROMAN FORUM & PALATINE HILL WITH AN EXPERT, HANDPICKED GUIDE.

Of course, we’ll see the best of the rest too! With pre-reserved Colosseum tickets, you’ll skip the regular entrance line and explore the first and second tiers of this iconic structure with your expert, fully-licensed guide. You’ll learn what a day at the games was like, from animal hunts, to “halftime” execution, to gladiatorial combat and hear of the political and social function the building played in the Roman Empire.

Your walk continues to the Roman Forum, undoubtedly one of the most historically important areas in the Western World. It was here where Marc Antony spoke at Julius Caesar’s funeral and his body cremated, where the Vestal Virgins tended the sacred flame, where politicians debated publicly and the Senate met, where currency was exchanged, and where many of the most sacred temples once stood. Its stones and ruins are replete with history but may not seem like much to the casual observer. Your guide will speak their stories, help you mentally reconstruct their fragments, and connect their influence to the world today.

Small groups on Walks of Italys VIP Ancient Rome Tour

SMALL GROUPS OF 15 PEOPLE OR FEWER — AND SPECIAL ACCESS AREAS ALL TO YOURSELF.

The sites of Ancient Rome shouldn’t be considered in isolation, but rather as individual stitches in the long and rich tapestry of Rome’s history. With an expert guide leading the charge, you’ll step into this story, following its twists and turns while being illuminated along its path.

With groups of only 15 people or fewer throughout your tour, you’ll have no trouble hearing, questioning or following your guide and with the special entry at Caesar’s Palace, you’ll have a full hour of peace and quiet in a cool, temperature-regulated room. Walk with us for an experience of Ancient Rome worthy of an Emperor!

Very satisfied with the tour of the Colosseum and Caesar's Palace.
Marta was great. Very informative and interesting. She was funny and told us anecdotes that added to the information. I would highly recommend Walks of Italy tours. We were met where and when we were told we would be. It was well organized and the group size was just right.
Tour guide was amazing!! So friendly and had so much knowledge! He was a ball of energy and had everyone excited! Loved him to pieces!!!!
Cecilia was great. This was my second visit to the Coliseum and the Forum...this was far and away the better of the two tours. Adding Augustus and Livia's apartments made it even better.
Silvia was awesome! Very informative and you could tell she really cared about the ruins and the history.
See deserves five stars. Very knowledgeable, passionate and enthusiastic. We felt very fortunate to have Sev as our guide.
Great Guide!!
This was simply magnificent. Tiberius was both funny and passionate. Will always remember this tour. 10 out of 10!!
guide was absolutely terrific, very enthusiastic with a touch of humor from time to time.
Luigi (the guide) was very informative, well paced tour, thoroughly enjoyed, learnt a lot of things
Wonderful guides.
Although the guide was very good there was a little too much talking and not enough getting around to see everything at the beginning of the tour.
Lucia was terrific! An excellent tour with information relayed in a free flowing manner that kept our interest throughout. Thank you!
Marta was fantastic! She had a thorough knowledge base and answered all questions. She was friendly, professional and made every accommodation for the group. From booking to check-in onsite, everything was easy and well organized. I would highly recommend Marta and Walks of Italy!
Marta was great at communicating and had enthusiam for this venue. She kept great control over our group that were all ages and had varying physical anilities.
Guide was fabulous - very informed and entertaining. Logistics of meeting were well handled. My only suggestion is to add a brief 15 min break in the middle of the walk - 3 1/2 straight felt a little too intense with no downtime.
Excellent tour. Guide very knowledgeable. Enjoyed very much.
Luigi was awesome! He was informative, knowledgeable, and had a wonderful personality.
The Tour is marvellous, and having the chance to visit alone the Palaces of Augustus and Livia is a fantastic opportunity for the guests. I already had knowledge about Luigi, and his elegance as a Tour Guide/Leader has been incredible. A real gentleman.
Excellent tour with so much information. Wish we could have spent just a bit more time in the Roman Forum, but understand that there was a lot to cover in a short amount of time. Meeting location was fabulous and check-in was very easy.
Francesco was amazing! very personable , knowledgeable and super insightful ! made it a very enjoyable day

She was really outstanding with her historical knowledge. She was the best tour guide we had.
Wonderful tour and guide !! Thank you for a great day.
Maria was a great guide; she was fun and very knowledgable. Visiting the Colisium and Forum without a guide would not have been nears as interesting. We really enjoyed the tour.
Excellent tour and Guide.
Ourguide was wonderful and very knowledgeable
We enjoyed this tour very much and being able to get into the palaces and see them up close was an extra bonus. Gianluigi was a fantastic tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Rome and he also kept us entertained with his style. I would highly recommend this tour!

Best guide ever
The tour was excellent. I would have preferred to spend more time in the Roman Forum and Coliseum and less time in the palace. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and so pleasant to be around! Enjoyed her immensely.
We enjoyed the tour thoroughly , Victor was a great guide and we learnt quite a bit and more about not only ancient Rome but also the items on the tour itinerary.
Tour was well paced and included great information. We especially liked the private Caesar's palace part of the tour.
The guide was passionate and knowledgable on Roman history and I will definitely book a tour with him again.
The VIP Caesar's Palace Tour was well designed and executed. The audio equipment worked very well. Most importantly, our guide Camilla was fantastic in knowledge and personality.
Super Awesome! Unfortunately, you basically need a tour to figure out the crowds alone, but the extra insight was very nice. Guide was excellent and quite passionate. A little pricey, but I'll still give it 5...
I thought Luigi was marvelous.
Tanguy was so knowledgeable and funny. He made the tour great! He really took you back in time and made it so interesting!
Elena was an amazing guide! She is very smart and communicates very well in English. Of all the tours my family did on our two week vacation, this was the favorite. The Caesar's Palace portion of the tour was our favorite part. Very special to go inside the palace.
Our tour guide Camilla was very knowledgeable and courteous. She was patient and very helpful. We've learned so much. We will definitely use your service again if all your guides are like her.
This was a great tour. We were amazed by the years of history at this location. This is a must tour if you get to Rome. Our group was small (6 people) so it felt like a private tour.
Excellent tour with an excellent guide. Camilla was well informed and gave us a very educative tour.
Guido was the perfect tour guide, very knowledgeable and professional in all aspects. The tour was perfectly paced and just the right size - it almost felt like a private tour. Congratulations to him and your company on an exceptional tour - We wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

Tour was excellent,our guide Bruno was very knowledgeable and informative,would highly recommend a tour.
Fabulous and informative!
The tour exceeded my expectations. Luigi provided a great tour - he's very well informed and related his knowledge in a great fashion. It was a pleasure to spend time with him. It was excellent!
Awesome guide- very thorough, enthusiastic and knowledgeable!
An excellent, informative tour. We had a great time!
Ruins were very interesting, especially the Casa Augusto and Livia. It was very hot and our guide walked very fast. This meant that we were rushing to keep up. Perhaps shorten the tour so patrons can walk at a more leisurely pace.
Luigi was fun and knowledgeable. The tour was a little grueling, due to the heat, but Luigi did his best to accommodate those of us who were out of shape. Great experience overall. Would highly recommend to others
See above.
Excellent tour..Mariella was a great guide. Would definitely recommend
Excellent your. Vanessa was knowledgable, friendly and had a good sense of humour. Shared relevant, interesting details without overwhelming us. My children lived it too.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was good to have someone who knew a lot of the history of all the area
Great guide... Thanks
Fantastic guide
We loved the tour. Of course we hoped for more time at Agustus' house but I think the security guard there was rushing us through. It was a very good and knowledgeable tour. We really enjoyed it. BTW this tour we took in the afternoon. Thank you
Our guide was great! She knew a lot about the history of the sites and kept the information she shared very interesting.
Our tour and our guide were excellent. Our guide's passion for the history of the places we visited was evident and her ability to make modern connections was superb. We very much enjoyed our tour.
Our tour guide was amazing !!! So knowledgeable and thorough . We appreciate the detail he was able to provide during the tour . It was very warm so I would not have wanted to do a tour longer than the one we went on .
Our guide was wonderful. So much knowledge and passion. We were a group of 4'and we all enjoyed her. I would highly recommend to my friends.
Great tour, Maria was very knowledgable and a lot of fun. And seeing Augustus' house (finally!) was worth the wait. Everything about this tour was great, especially Maria. I couldn't recommend her more!
Despite a brutally hot day, this tour was awesome. Be prepared for lots of walking - but our guide was energetic, insightful and taught us a lot in 4 hour.
Wonderfull amazing tour with so much inspirung information and perspectives from Angela. Really an unique experience I would recommend to anyone
Angela was a fantastic guide. She was incredibly enthusiastic, made sure everyone understood the points she was making and also made sure we were all ok on what was an extremely hot day.
Dario was an excellent guide who brought the subject to life. We especially loved the tour of the Palace complex and the beautiful frescos. Would recommend highly!
Excellent guide and very well organized! It was special to be able to enter the Houses of Augustus and Livia!
Was very interesting informative and we spent a lot of time at the important places.
Even a Roman rain shower could not dampen this wonderful tour. Rosa was gracious with her time and extensive knowledge. It was a privilege to be guided by such a passionate 9th generation Roman.
The guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She also provided in depth information and images that we wouldn't have seen or known without her.
Mariella was fantastic! She was so knowledgeable and made it fun!
Mariella was wonderful and made the tour really interesting but fun as well because of the knowledge she has.Tha pace was good and easy to keep up with. I would most certainly do another tour next time I'm in Rome.
Our tour guide was so informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and were very impressed with the professionalism of the tour guide and the information that was shared. We will definitely choose Walks of Italy again if we visit Italy again.
Gas was so knowledgeable about absolutely everything and told his stories in a usch a way that you felt you were there. Being able to have access threw the palace was amazing and i would do it again just to see the palace grounds one more time!
Cicilia was fantastic! One of the best tour guides I have ever had anywhere. Could not have been better.
We thought Silvia was great. She was knowledgeable, fun and passionate. She also had the ability to deliver the tour to a mixed group of people some with no knowledge of Ancient Rome and some with quite a lot. We had a great time and would use Walks again.
Loved learning about and exploring the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Caesar's Palace et all. Cecilia was a wonderful guide, both fun and informative. I took three guided tours in Italy, this was easily the best. Keep it up, Walks of Italy.
Felix was a fantastic guide. The only downside was how crowded the Colosseum was owing to it being Wednesday and many people visiting it before the weekly papal audience. It would have been great to have known when the quiet days were in advance.
wonderful tour with special access. the star of the tour was the guide. She made the trip so speacial with great knowledge, kindness and fun. she made everyone comfortable and shared great information. she also shared reccomendations about all of italy. Great knowledge and great person!!
The tour was great and our guide was too. She handled everything with poise and humor. Loved it!
It was great to get an insight into that era. Thanks. Very knowledgeable guide as well.
Excellent guide, very knowledgeable. Has a 6th sense about how to navigate the Vatican. Very gracious. Worth every cent. I plan to highly recommend this tour and guide
We all loved it - our nine year old declared it the best thing we did on our week's holiday. Thought the guide was great, really engaging and funny.
The tour was very good. Sometimes just a little hard to understand after we were in the Coliseum. I will highly recommend Walks of Italy to friends.
The highlight of the tour was the visit to the Houses of Augustus and Livia. Camilla was a great guide, and the tour was overall very informative and enjoyable.
The guide was brilliant, he was very caring for us and made the Colosseum tour very exciting you could tell that he knew a lot about the history. We really enjoyed our trip.
We loved the enthusiasm and amount of knowledge that Tiberio delivered to us during our walk!
Venessa was excellent guide, she has so much knowledge, She made the tour so interesting cause she has lot of interest. I would recommend her if any of my friends going to Italy . Thank you so much Venessa we have learnt a lot from you about roman history 👌👌👌
Fantastic tour!
Fantastic guide. Throughly enjoyed the tour. Excellent guide.
Camilla was a wonderful tour guide. The sights of the tour were awesome, but Camilla made it even better with her deep knowledge of the area and witty remarks.
Elisa was an amazing guide and we were so impressed with her knowledge and loved our tour!
Overall excellent tour. Would prefer less time getting an overview while sitting in one place within the colosseum . . . rather have comments provided within more locations within the colosseum. Just a minor suggestion.
Fantastic insight from Guido. Seeing the Private Rooms of Augustus was amazing!
Very knowledgable and friendly. She took great care of our group
Our guide (I forget his name) was incredibly knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. I feel I saw some beautiful old things and learned so much.
High caliber tour guide. Wonderful tour
Giovani is FABULOUS!
Guide was very passionate and informative. Thanks for a great tour.
Thank you for having Vanessa as our tour guide. She brought the tour alive with her knowledge and passion for the history of Rome. Her specific interest in the Forum, Colusium and Emporers homes really revealed a depth of insight and drew out our imagination. Bravo, well done.
Superb tour. Really brought back to life the ancient times. Was very enthusiastic, clear and knowledgeable. Answered all our questions in detail.
We found the tour most enjoyable the guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his subject and was very entertaining and went to great lengths to be inclusive of the whole group. I would not think twice about booking other events with you.

Our tour guide was super!
Excellent. Vincenzo is the best would have happily employed him for my whole trip to Rome. A real treat to be allowed in to the Palace - it surpassed expectations. Please ensure our excellent guide is made aware how much his excellent tour was appreciated. 10/10!!
Great tour. We rarely use a guided tour but thought that the most popular sights in Rome merited it. We were so glad we did! We covered so much during the tour. Our guide was informative and interesting. All in our group enjoyed the whole experience.
Thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
Very satisfied... great tour. We enjoyed our tour guide and the job he did!
Giovanni was a great guide. Tour well laid out and presented at a nice pace. We were most pleased.

Very knowledgeable and fun!
Cecelia was a great guide. She was so knowledgeable and so nice. We were very pleased with both the content and quality of the tour. We were hoping to Have her as our guide on our "Pristine Sistine" tour as well!
We really enjoyed this tour. The time in the royal apartments was especially good. Our guide, Davide, was very informed and engaging. He was great with taking questions and had an obvious love of the subject matter. We will ask for him on our next visit to Rome. Thanks for a great experience!
Brilliant guide. Very informative and entertaining. Best tour we have been on in over ten years of visiting Rome. Worth the slightly extra cost without a doubt to go on such a professionally run tour.
My husband and I had a wonderful tour with Walks of Italy. We had been on a tour of the Colosseum few years ago but this tour was a great improvement. We are history enthusiasts and were very impressed by the knowledge of our tour guide. We would highly recommend Walks of Italy tours.
An excellent tour. We were very pleased with our guide. I would be happy recommend your company.
The tour was amazing. Alesia's knowledge was beyond my expectations and I haven't stopped recommending this tour to others.
Maria was great! Very knowledgeable. Wonderful tour!
Rosa was fantastic! Very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour!
very knowledgable guide
Rosa has such passion for Rome and the sites we toured. Her knowledge of languages & history was appreciated. Toured here as Latin student 40 years ago so esp enjoyed this tour.
Giovanni was an excellent guide: very informative, interesting and amusing. The tour was wonderful and we enjoyed it immensely!
Our guide was wonderful. Very informative and friendly!
Lucy was fantastic and very knowledgeable and passionate about the history. She made it interesting and educational.
Fantastic tour! Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable...absolutely fascinating tour, would highly recommend!!
Fernando was an amazing guide with knowledge in abundance but he also knew just the right amount to give us. We cannot say enough of how much we enjoyed Fernando. Our small group of 8 people was also just right.
Excellent tour and fantastic tour guide.
We had a nine year old with us on the tour and she said Jukiette was her favorite guide.
Our Tour Guide was really informative, very friendly and answered all of our questions with a smile.
Alyssa was fantastic! Made the experience really enjoyable and we learnt so much from her. Thank you very much! Will recommend you to anyone who visits Rome Amy and Ben x
Loved the tour and guide was great.
Very nice and interesting tour. We were lucky to have a small tour which made the experience much better. Our guide claudia was great she knew a lot and gave us lots of information. This was an amazing tour!
Our guide was phenomenal!! Best tour we have ever been on, well worth the money. Getting a tour from an archeologist that worked at the Colosseum was the best surprise, we will definitely book with you guys again in the future!
Very knowledgable.
Silvia was wonderful, highly knowledgeable about her subject matter, and provided us with lots of inside information about the sites and the epochs of history we were seeing. Her English is excellent - her German, too. Thanks for an unforgettable tour, Silvia!
Luigi was amazing!
Everything just perfect, thank you so much!
I really enjoyed this tour. Juilietta is passionate and enthusiastic, knowledgeable and most important very clear. It was very special to see he frescoes in the house of Livia and to have the historical context so well explained.
Giuletta has a wealth of knowledge and presented information in a way that was easy to follow. She is clearly passionate about Ancient Rome and does a great job in sharing fascinating anecdotes that bring history to life.
The tour was great and we thought Tiberio was a great guide. He was knowledgeable, very friendly and enthusiastic - he really helped "set the stage" for the history he was sharing.
Excellent, knowledgeable guide. Thoroughly interesting.
Great tour! Ferdinando was very knowledgeable. He shared a variety of information and then answered additional questions throughly. His deep archeological background was a big plus.
Excellent job
Ferdinando was also exemplary & we enjoyed his company & great knowledge. All three of the guides were so kind & easy to speak with that we felt at ease & enjoyed their company as well as the history that they imparted. Well done again!!
The guide was very informative & full of energy. She was wonderful !! ( Guide name = Rose )
The guide was very knowledgable. Enjoyed the history and the private access that the tour provided.
My husband and I took this tour with Rosa last week, what a great few hours we spent. Rosa was passionate about Rome and very knowledgable, which made this tour interesting and left me wanting to know more. I would highly recommend this tour.
Awsome!
Tour guide was wonderful!
Great tour! Small group with a wonderful guide. The audio system made it easy for us to hear our guide while still being able to look around and take in the sights. Loved the tour of Augustus' house on the Palatine which took us away from the crowds for an intimate glimpse into ancient Roman life.
Our guide was wonderful - she was so proud to be from Rome, and her knowledge was incredible. It was an amazing tour!
Luigi was wonderful. Very knowledgeable about the history of what we were looking at. The palace and Livia's house was unbelievably gorgeous. Had a fabulous time.
Dario was excellent.
An excellent tour, which was perfectly organised and a guide who was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He also got people to think and not just accept.
Ferdinando was great. Tour was wonderful - just the rugby length for a family. He shared lots of wonderful personal archeaological experiences. Highly recommend.
Ferdinando was great. Tour was wonderful - just the rugby length for a family. He shared lots of wonderful personal archeaological experiences. Highly recommend.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Luigi as our guide. He brought the ancient Rome back to life for us. It really was an amazing experience. Everything was totally organized and went very smoothly. It was certainly worth every euro!! Thank You
The tour was fantastic! My only wish is that I paid more attention to what Lucille was telling me. She had a wealth of knowledge to share which made the tour even better.
Guide was fantastic, a wealth of knowledge!
Ferdinando is excellent. We were on two tours with him and were very impressed with his knowledge. He is also very personable. Highest rating on him and this tour.
Dario was awesome! I also couldn't believe we had access to the areas of the Doma Augusti that we saw! It was the part of Rome I've dreamt of seeing!
I found the tour to be excellent. Tiberio was simply fantastic. His depth of knowledge and true passion for his work makes him a great guide. This was the best tour I've ever been on!
Very good tour! I enjoyed it immensely!
Great tour with lots of information. We especially enjoyed Caesar Augustus' and Livia's homes - amazing frescoes! We will definitely recommend the tours to others!
The tour was wonderful and our guide Gaston made it so. Friendly, funny, helpful, informative, and responsive to questions.
Great guide - very knowledgeable and passionate! Awesome to be the only ones there!!
The guide was wonderful. He was very knowledgable but also kept the information interesting. Caesar's Palace was a highlight.
Excellent the rain notwithstanding-- guide was great, interesting, engaging and very credible. Excellent value.
Sent a reply to your earlier note concerning our mis-understanding and as I said was completely satisfied with the tour and your response . Would certainly recommend to others. A FULL tour with so much interesting detail. A MUST for everyone. Gary
The guide was very knowledgeable. The tour was very interesting. We enjoyed every moment.
Fascinating tour with an excellent and knowledgeable guide.
Very good tour and knowledgeable guide
Julietta gave one of the best tours we have ever had. She is a credit to your company. Very knowledgable and a very good communicator
Juliette was well informed and very interesting. She had a great sense of humor and engaged the entire group.
Great tour and great guide -the tour company was redeemed after the pristine Sistine chapel tour fiasco ...
Once again, a fabulous experience!!
Julietta was great. I went on 5 guided tours between Venice and Rome, and Julietta was my favorite guide (and she had the best "flag"). Lots of interesting information, good pacing, and very friendly.
Excellent guide, and really informative. I particularly enjoyed the pictures of 'before and after' in the forum and colosseum, which gave a great view of how things used to look. My only minor complaint: better directions on how to leave the Forum after the tour would have been appreciated.
The lady that took our tour gave 200 percent her knowledge was mind blowing her personality was brilliant i cannot speak highly enough for her and made a point of telling other tourist and our hotel
Guide Ferdinando was truly excellent!! A professional who gave us much important information -- but not mired in details. Very engaging personality. Very well prepared. We especially liked his use of images. Tour moved along very well. Can't imagine a better guide. Please thank him!!
Fantastic - Ferinando was so knowledgable, passionate about the subject and professional.
Julianna was a great guide. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. I gave 5 stars on Tripadvisor
Frederico was amazing. He made the history come to life. We were especially impressed with his knowledge
Gastone is a gem. We enjoyed the Colosseo being put into an understandable context. It wasn't just blood and gore for blood and gore's sake!
Julieta was outstanding as a guide. When i asked a few construction questions about the Colosseum she had great additional information. I really enjoyed the tour and would not hesitate to recommend one to friends traveling to Italy.
Rosa was very knowledgeable and the pace was good. I especially liked the visual guides she used to enhance the tour. Learned a lot about the forum, amphitheater and Caesar's palace.
She was a very knowledgeable tour guide and we truly enjoyed this tour with her.
Luigi the guide was excellent
This was one of the best tours I have attended. Julietta is extremely well educated, articulate and interesting. She made the tour a wonderful learning experience.
Good tour. Loved the VIP part of the tour. Tiring but well worth doing.
This was an excellent tour! I've visited the Colosseum a few years before, but didn't learn much about it because I didn't book a tour. Having a tour guide made the experience so much more interesting and enjoyable. I was with my wife and two friends and we had a blast - would highly recommend!
Our guide Guilette was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and made the tour entertaining and factual.
The tour was informative and the guide made the experience a fun & satisfying one. The access to the private areas of the 1st Empire was an amazing privellidge
Juliette was wonderful. Could not have asked for a better guide. Knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. Enthusiastic about her subject and obviously enjoys her work! Great sense of humour. Would recommend this tour to others.
Very knowledgeable enthusiastic guide. Opportunity for private tour of Caesars palace particularly special
This is the first walking tour I've ever been on. I will definitely go on one again however I reckon we may have been treated to the best tour guide there is. (Eliza) Kate, Ireland
Elisa was amazing. She was the best guide we have ever had at the Colleseum in three visits. She was super informative fun and a great sense of humor. Give her a big raise. She deserves it.
Julietta was an amazing tour guide (the absolute best) and her tour was the best tour we took in Italy. She is amazing!!!!
Our guide Lucy, was absolutely wonderful! She told us about the sites and it felt like you were listening to a story being told! I've been through many tours and the guides got boring after a while but not with her. She also had extra umbrellas on hand when it started to pour!
The tour was great. Our tour guide was as excited with the tour as us!
Thank you! Had a great time - wonderful tour guide - she went above and beyond!
James was very informative and a joy to be around.
Tiberio was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly.
Our guide was AMAZING. He loves the material and is passionate about it. It made the experience fantastic!
We really liked our guide. He was VERY nice, funny and informative. The tour was very enjoyable.
Touring the palaces of Augustus and Livia was an exceptional opportunity. Our guide, Lucy, did a great job of characterizing the culture and practices of Ancient Rome.
Absolutely brilliant tour, the best of all we did in our 4 weeks in Italy. Julieeta the guide was magnificent, so knowledgable, humorous and enthusiastic. Bonus for us was the tour was being videoed for website! Husband was interviewed at end
Luigi was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge and very professional and polite!!! We really enjoyed the tour !!
Brilliant tour, especially seeing the house of Augustus. Your guide was a walking encyclopedia.
Brilliant tour, especially seeing the house of Augustus. Your guide was a walking encyclopedia.
Very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. The equipment used during the tour worked very well and made it easy to hear and understand. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
Guide was awesome - full of personality and knowledge. Would just advise guests to bring water given how hot the summer is.
excellent guide. enjoyed tour very much
Lucilla was extremely knowledgeable and very informative. It was a great tour and the opportunity to be one of a privileged few to see Augustus and Livia's quarters was a delight. Thanks so much.
Having a tour guide who is also an archaeologist was wonderful. If anything, I would have preferred a more intense archaeological based tour (maybe you should consider offering one)
Nice to have a local guide. Thanks

Important information

Before you travel, please read our important notes about possible disruptions & site entrance requirements

There is a new rule at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities) and all guests must now pass through a security check before entering the Colosseum.

The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although our tickets are pre-booked with Skip the Line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).

Everything was wonderful! Maristella was extremely knowledgable and charming. I have been to the Roman Forum a few times, but wanted to book a guide since this was my husband's first time and he is a history lover. Maristella made the history come alive for us with her wonderful resources and animated story telling. She was born for this! Her passion for history, architecture, art and finding the perfect place to cool down for a drink and a breeze all made our experience unforgettable. We took another amazing Walks of Italy Tour during our stay, but Maristella brought this tour to the next level. We also feel truly luck to see the houses of Augustus Caesar and Livia! The history and beauty of the frescos and mosaics was overwhelming...in the best way possible. The tour was worth every penny and I would recommend it to anyone.
Very satisfied with the tour of the Colosseum and Caesar's Palace.

Marta was great. Very informative and interesting. She was funny and told us anecdotes that added to the information. I would highly recommend Walks of Italy tours. We were met where and when we were told we would be. It was well organized and the group size was just right.
Excellent tour guide. Our guide was wonderful, she was very knowledgeable without feeling like you were in school. We loved it, and learned so much!
Tour guide was amazing!! So friendly and had so much knowledge! He was a ball of energy and had everyone excited! Loved him to pieces!!!!
The guide was fantastic and the visit was well planned. The visit to the limited access living areas was amazing. The only drawback was that Mother Nature chose our time to rain so hard we were soaked completely and had to leave before it ended. Nobody could have done anything about it so will definitely recommend this tour to friends visiting Rome.
Great tour, I cannot understate the importance of what a guide means to making the difference on a tour. Simone was a wealth of knowledge , he continuously kept feeding us historical information , I have already visited the colosseum, but have never learned so much about its history. I strongly recommend the tour and our guide Simone. I have done 7 tours with walks of Italy, every tour and guide have exceeded our expectations, however I must say Simone is on another level ! He is by far the best tour guide we have ever had. Tour rating system has five stars, he gets ten stars!!
Each guide has rich background of information that she/he brings when discussing the historic sites. We were very fortunate to get Laura who is an art archeologist. My companion on the tour is an artist so it was a delight to get an artists view on the various places we visited. Laura was also familiar with the political history of the area and we felt was able to give us great insight into the way life must have been 2-3,000 ears ago.
Cecilia was great. This was my second visit to the Coliseum and the Forum...this was far and away the better of the two tours. Adding Augustus and Livia's apartments made it even better.

Silvia was awesome! Very informative and you could tell she really cared about the ruins and the history.
See deserves five stars. Very knowledgeable, passionate and enthusiastic. We felt very fortunate to have Sev as our guide.
Sev was knowledgeable, interesting and professional. He made the history of the places we toured accessible and thrilling. It was an excellent tour in every way. I could not have been happier with the experience. I would reccomend this tour to anyone who asked and would take a tour with your company and this tour leader again. Thank you. Suzanne Rush
Great Guide!!
This was simply magnificent. Tiberius was both funny and passionate. Will always remember this tour. 10 out of 10!!
guide was absolutely terrific, very enthusiastic with a touch of humor from time to time.
Everything was fine .

Great tour, very well organized. From the beginning we were greeted very friendly and effectively divided into relevant groups. Our guide Luigi was very enthusiastic and very well informed. It was a long tour of 3,5 hours, but everything was so interesting and the pace was perfect. The head sets worked perfect and we could easily hear and follow our guide. We will definately use Walks of Italy again if we come back :) And highly recommend them to others!
Luigi (the guide) was very informative, well paced tour, thoroughly enjoyed, learnt a lot of things
This was our I believe 6th or 7th Walks of Italy Tour during our 14 day vacation in Italy I can assure you that we were pleased with all of them. The efforts to make the tours as comfortable as possible for the entire group, the professionalism that was exhibited by all of the representatives of Walks of Italy was outstanding. We use your company again without question. On this particular tour our Guide Guido was great, he did an excellent job.
Wonderful guides.
The tour was very detailed - almost too much so. It was very informative, but sometimes we spent 15-20 minutes not moving and some of the material was presented multiple times. I think this tour could have been done in 2.5 hours and still would have been informative.
Although the guide was very good there was a little too much talking and not enough getting around to see everything at the beginning of the tour.
We loved Ettore. We had a really good experience with Angela on the Sistine Chapel tour the day before and we figured that we just lucked out during that tour. But then we met Ettore who clearly also had a robust educational background (in other words, he really knew his stuff), had a fantastic sense of humor, made the history come to life and made it fun. It's days later and we're still swapping Ettore fun facts and quoting him constantly. Give him a raise too!
Hello there, Gaia and team. I'm an official tour guide myself in London, so I know the value of a good guide, and I chose you, as a company, very carefully. This tour really was everything I could have wished for, and my standards are high. The guide (I remember him as Mr T) was excellent – personable, knowledgeable and professional. I don't envy him having to negotiate those crowds on a regular basis…
Lucia was terrific! An excellent tour with information relayed in a free flowing manner that kept our interest throughout. Thank you!
Marta was fantastic! She had a thorough knowledge base and answered all questions. She was friendly, professional and made every accommodation for the group. From booking to check-in onsite, everything was easy and well organized. I would highly recommend Marta and Walks of Italy!

Marta was great at communicating and had enthusiam for this venue. She kept great control over our group that were all ages and had varying physical anilities.
Andrea is a fabulous guide. He is extraordinarily knowledgeable, articulate, and personable. I have been studying the ancient sites for decades, and Andrea was as pleased to be inside Augustus' house and Livia's house, as I was. Clearly, his repeated exposures do not diminish his enthusiasm. I do not think the tour could have been any better. It was excellent.
Guide was fabulous - very informed and entertaining. Logistics of meeting were well handled. My only suggestion is to add a brief 15 min break in the middle of the walk - 3 1/2 straight felt a little too intense with no downtime.
Excellent tour. Guide very knowledgeable. Enjoyed very much.
Luigi was awesome! He was informative, knowledgeable, and had a wonderful personality.
(No comment)
The Tour is marvellous, and having the chance to visit alone the Palaces of Augustus and Livia is a fantastic opportunity for the guests. I already had knowledge about Luigi, and his elegance as a Tour Guide/Leader has been incredible. A real gentleman.
Excellent tour with so much information. Wish we could have spent just a bit more time in the Roman Forum, but understand that there was a lot to cover in a short amount of time. Meeting location was fabulous and check-in was very easy.
Everything was great except for one thing: the guide asked the group if we needed a bathroom break in the Colosseum. One woman said yes and we waited about 20 min's for one person to fight the line. It was a waste of time for the group and as a result I had to leave and miss the last bit of the tour. At the start of the tour (one as busy as this one), the guide should say go to the bathroom now as there is nowhere to stop. A much fairer approach. Great guide and tour though
Francesco was amazing! very personable , knowledgeable and super insightful ! made it a very enjoyable day
In a very crowdedifferent Coleseum, gigi in managed to personalize the experience for us.

Excellent tour. I wish we could have had a little more time in the Roman Forum, as we rushed through that area. Loved Caesar's Palace and Colosseum. Guide was very knowledgeable about all the areas and the audio worked well.
Our guide was personable and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Walks of Rome.
It was a terrific tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, personable, and fun!
Davide was really good. But I would say that this tour tries to pack in too much stuff into too little time. There is just so much here to see. But to extend it, of course, you'd have to break for lunch. and lose a lot of time. So there probably isn't any practical way do that. The Imperial apartments, though, were the real highlight of this tour.
