We joined an English speaking group for Colosseum and Palatine hill. For Colosseum it was an Italian male guide who spoke very good English and was very enthusiastic. For Palatine hill it was Chad, an American guide with a very dark humour that worked well with the history at hand. Our group was about 10-15 person and felt about right.... More

With the Vatican being so busy we were shuffled through like a group of... More

Having done a spontaneous tour of the Colisseum, Foro and Palatino with Roberto and Elaine from Rome 2 Tours I decided to book with Elaine to see the Vatican and St Peter's the following day. 3pm was definitely the best time to book it for, upon recommendation, as there were no annoying school or big group tours and nothing is...

Feel bad reading all the other reviews, we had Chad show us round the forum and give us the lowdown on the early Romans, he was pretty cool, self deprecating and seriously deserves his own panel show on BBC 2. Funny guy. Then in the afternoon for the Vatican we had Elaine who showed us how to 'scooch closer' on... More

I really enjoyed the tour of the Colosseum. Information was put across with a lot of humour and fun. Very enjoyable.

So we had online tickets for the vatican museum and sistine chapel for the Wednesday! We bumped into an American guy outside the vatican on Tuesday. He informed us that we could upgrade to a guided tour for €25 each. This particular tour is normally €55, so we actually paid €45 each in total. We upgraded because, quite simply, I... More

We spoke with Romaround Tours' guide Christian after he finished a Roman Forum tour with a group. He was telling people he was able to do tours for individuals or small groups in the afternoons and would personalise it to whatever you wanted, which appealed to us. We organised to meet Christian the next day for an extended personal tour... More

Lesson 1: if you have your online ticket for the Vatican Museum and the Sistine chapel, you can also access the Saint Peter directly from the Museum. Therefore, don't worry about the line outside the Saint Peter Lesson 2: if a tour guide offers you to skip the line outside the Saint Peter while pointing out you have an online... More

Alex showed us around the Paletine and it was fascinating. He was very knowledgable, funny and very easy to understand. He is an excellent speaker and you were drawn in to everything he said. We were so glad we took this tour. He was captivating and we came home with loads of facts to wow our friends with!

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
