We arrived at the Colosseum with no plan and were quickly wooed by a woman offering a tour of Colosseum, Palatine and Forum for 40 Euros, with bonus of going into the arena floor at Colosseum. It felt a little shady, but ended up working...More

Like the last few reviewers said, the tour of the Colosseum, Palatino, and Roman Forum with Mitch was excellent. We were impressed by his humor and use of cultural references (movies, TV shows, and world politics) to explain things. His English was not accented and...More

As everyone says, the Colosseum/Forum tour with Mitch and Radu is the best, as long as the group size is not too big. Loud & clear English and there's a fascinating narrative, not just a string of unconnected names & dates like most tours. Even...More

We were happily solicited by these folks as we were walking up to the Coliseum. They ran an excellent and informative tour, bypassing the big entry lineups. Each tour, coliseum and then Forum, was about an hour. Group size was 20. The guides were great,...More

Over the course of my life, I have had a total of somewhere around 25 tour guides. Radu was hands down, far and away, the best of them all. And not by a little bit, either. He's so energetic, so funny, and so engaging, that...More

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
