We did both the Coliseum/Forum tour and the Vatican tour as private tours. Booking the trip was easy and I received all the notifications and direct communication I needed to ensure we were all set and ready to go before we arrived. Our guide, Ferdinando, was terrific. Our kids (15, 13 and 11 years old) all enjoyed him and he... More

We absolutely adored Valentina, who from the moment she met us was looking out for our best interests. She obviously loves her country and her city and shares with enthusiasm the knowledge she has. We booked this tour as a shore excursion from our cruise, and she did an amazing job of pre-purchasing our tickets to both the Colosseum and... More

We just got back from our family adventure to Italy. While in Rome we booked two private tours one of the Colosseum and the other of the Vatican. Both were with Luca who was just fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, easy to get a long with and we all had a lot of fun with him and learned a lot.... More

The tour was absolutely brilliant. The email responses from the company were prompt and extremely helpful. The walk was pleasant and not strenuous at all in spite of the heat. Lara, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She is a well educated and highly experienced tour guide. I would definitely recommend this tour as the best way to... More

We booked our private Colosseum tour on-line with Linda, who was very responsive and helpful. Our tour guide was Vera, who was waiting for us at the designated meeting place (even though I was late) and was easy to locate. Vera provided excellent information and was very pleasant. She recognized that one of the members of our small group had... More

Scheduling this tour was easy and I received quick email responses and reminders. I also booked a private car to our cruise port through Private Tour of Rome. Veronica was our guide of the Vatican and St. Peter's. She provided interesting details for my varied in age and interest group. The Vatican is so much more crowded that it was... More

We had two tours booked - one with Veronica to see the Vatican and one with Tommaso to see the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Both of them are archelogists so they were able to provide a richness to the tour that couldn't be beat. Also, they are great at knowing how to move you through the different venues to beat... More

We met Tommaso by the Colosseum at 8 AM which began an outstanding walking tour of Rome. Tommaso is an archeologist while he is not providing tours, and has a great understanding and knowledge of Rome and its history. He spoke excellent English, set the pace of the tour to our needs, used his IPAD to assist in providing imagery... More

Outstanding tours for our family of five! Something for everyone! We booked the 3-hour Vatican tour and two days later the 3-hour Colosseum/Forum tour. We were lucky enough to have Luca for both! His energy, humor and knowledge were perfect for our group (ages 10-55). He answered every question throughout and beautifully brought Ancient Rome to life at the Colosseum/Forum... More

Staying in Vatican / Borgo

Neighborhood Profile
Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighborhood which acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the souvenir boutiques and a few food spots, the only business conducted here is papal. In the daytime, the tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as visitors vie for elbow room, or stand in line for a visit. Once the sun sets, the neighborhood is transformed into a quiet and picturesque hamlet.
