wonderful tour! we had an amazing guide - Gigi (I hope i spelled his name right). He shared great stories and told us how Coloseo actually worked, lots of interesting facts that you would never know yourself and shared so much about the history. His energy made the tour fun and actually enjoyable for the whole duration. Well I don't thinknI need to write to write review on the venue itself, Coloseo is a unique construction. It is indeed one of the wonders of the world.

This tour was incredible! The sights alone made it amazing, but our guide’s extensive knowledge took the tour to a whole other level. We really appreciated all of the history that was presented in front of us along with his very detailed and fascinating information to accompany it. Highly recommended!
