I just came back from a 14 days tour package to Europe for a family of 4 totaling 19 of us with CS Travel Pte Ltd. It was a total disappointment with many unhappy incidents during the trip especially with the tour leader, Linda Er (a freelance when I contacted her for planning our trip and now a staff with...

It is so large and so amazing you could easily spend a whole day here. We were not expecting this only the colosseum so we were rewarded with this extra treat that we did not really have the time or energy to fully apreciate

My father came from this area and the thought that my direct ancestors took part in the building and use of the of thieancient Structures made this a special experience for me. To think something deep inside me may have been here thousands of years ago was very exciting. I found all of Rome was safe but did not remember... More

Incredible views everywhere you turn. It's an amazing experience to be walking in the footsteps of those who lived here so long ago. There is so much to see that you really need to plan a whole day or two to explore. There are also plenty of restaurants in the area.

We visited one afternoon the sun was out & it wasn't too crowded. Absolutely amazing ! Felt like we were stepping back in time the info on the signs was detailed & gave enough for the imagination to run wild ! Fabulous afternoon which has made a lasting impression on my memories or Rome.

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

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.
