Visiting the Colosseum was a bucket list event for me, and our guide, Simona, went above and beyond to make the afternoon special for us. She is so kind, knowledgeable and enthusiastic! Simona was also very inclusive with our young daughter, and it was very family friendly. I am so glad we were able to have Simona as our guide, and I would 100% recommend both her, and the company, if you're considering visiting the Colosseum. Thank you again, Simona and hopefully see you in Lapland some day!

Enjoyed this tour so much. It was the perfect length and balance or guided tour and time to look around on your own. Julio was a brilliant tour guide and so knowledgable. He made the tour and explaining all the history very fun- thank you very much :) would definitely recommend

The exibition is amazing. It is worth the visit. Very very intersting and the exibition is very well put together. I also suggest the audio guide. It has a ton of interesting information.

So fun and clever! Geared for kids, but as a very physically active middle aged person, I still had a lot of fun running around with the youngsters and doing a little swordplay.

Anna was an excellent guide. My 6 year old daughter Isabella loved her and the three hours flew away. We all learnt many interesting things and can’t wait to come back!
