It was not so easy to find our guide, but after a telephone consultation it worked. In the Colosseum we had to wait a little longer for our headsets and unfortunately the group was not as offered maximum 12 persons but twice as many.

I paid 90 euros for 2 people and the entrance was free that day

I paid 90 euros for 2 people and the entrance was free that day. We were sent from guide 1, to guide 2, to guide 3. Apparently everyone has to earn from it. The only advantage was that you do not have to queue and get an explanation, but this does not cost 90 euros. A lady paid 35 euros for 2 people on the spot. More than half less. We will never come again.

Saves a lot of time.

Worth the money to book queuing which saved a lot of time. However, it did not appear at the time of booking that you could not enter until after 2 pm even the following day. Missed that you did not get a small map with some info which you really needed for the Roman Forum and the Palatine. So read on a bit before you go there and you will get much more out of the visit.
