We visited the Forum and Colosseum and Pantheon, walked past the Trevi Fountain (under construction). It is so remarkable to see the buildings in person and to visualize life long ago. The Colosseum is also getting some needed exterior repairs but the inside shows the area under the arena quite well and we were fortunate to have a guide to... More

We signed up for a 12 person tour with What a Life Tours and were pleasantly surprised when we learned that we were the only 2 on the 3 hour tour. We really enjoyed having the attention of our tour guide, Giuliano who was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the ancient city and the colosseum. The day was hot and,... More

Just come back from 4 day visit to Rome. Stayed in Hotel Tiziano in the centre of city. All major sites within easy distance. Visited Vatican, Roman Forum, Colosseum . Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and much much more. Around every corner is a Piazza with lots going on. Very good restaurants, although being in Rome tend to be a bit expensive,... More

This place is brilliant, for a history fan. Mixed in with all the ruins there are restaurants and shops. It can all be seen on foot, and it's best to plan for a whole day so that you can see it all.

Inside city walls there is so much history its hard to even imagine being able to see it all in such a small area. The best part of this walled city is it is completely walkable to see everything!! It's got first class shopping along the main roads and thousands of restaurants to choose from. You could wander around here... More

Your vision of travel depends mostly on where you view it from; a couple of days here in a swank hotel and a conducted tour will give one a totally different opinion of Rome than some who stay for 3 to 4 weeks and live in an apartment/buy food at the market/cook it at home/dump the rubbish at the containers...

Just got back from this holiday with my family. Its not nicknamed the 'red eye' for nothing, so much time on the Italycoach, however it really is great value for money, the hotels were okay and the food not bad but the chance to see Florence Rome and Pisa in one visit was awesome. Our base in Montecatinin Terme was... More

Sonia gave us a five-hour tour of "Ancient Rome" - Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Forum, Capitoline Hill, Pantheon, etc. Sonia added immeasurably to the experience. She brings a wealth of professional and academic experience. We lean red the in depth history of the architecture, the politics, the people and the events. In addition, Sonia was warm and welcoming, encouraging questions and... More

I visited Rome the summer of 1972 with my 2 best friends. None of us spoke Italian, but it didn't matter, since English is commonly spoken there. We visited Vatican City and prayed at St. Peter's Cathedral with its gorgeous altar, the Pantheon, the Coloselum (walked the many steps),the Spanish Steps (got breathless, with many stops!), A few museums, and...
