based on 49 reviews

Our guide was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the city. For my sister and I this was an ideal way to explore the city at the start of our trip, to get a feel for it and to see which sights we wanted to explore more. The route itself was very bikefriendly and was clearly planned for that reason.

Very useful for visiting museums, but above all the arena and Juliet's house, an essential pass to be able to avoid the kilometric queues at the entrance. Best purchase made

Everything went very well. I recommend this card to everyone to avoid queues and save money.

Excellent organization; a quick and easy way to enjoy the beauties of the Arena.

With priority entrance we skipped at least half an hour in the queue
