As you gaze out over the arena floor, listen as your guide tells stories of the gladiators, wild animals, and Roman emperors that frequented the theater. On leaving the Colosseum, continue to Palatine Hill, one of Rome’s legendary Seven Hills, from where you can enjoy a fantastic panoramic view of the city. Pay a visit to the hilltop ruins of the Palazzo dei Cesari, and then head down to explore the sprawling ruins of the Roman Forum. During the tour, your guide points out all the most notable sites, including the Via Sacra, Curia, and Domus. After a morning taking in the highlights of Ancient Rome, your tour ends outside the Roman Forum.

My husband loves history, but I selected the guided tour to skip the lines. We went with Viator. We met at their office and our group walked to the Colosseum which was about a 5 minute walk. The tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and he connected with the group. It was nice to skip the long security line even at our 5:00 tour time. You can definitely get good pictures from outside, but you must go inside to grasp how huge it is. After the guided tour ended, we could stay as long as we wanted.

My friend and I booked these guided tours to include the underground of the Colosseum prior to arrival in Rome as we had read that the queues were big. Queues didn't look too bad when we got there but I still think it's best to pre-book. We were greeted by a very friendly young lady outside the metro opposite the colosseum and she passed us onto a nice guy who walked us to the colosseum and sorted out our access. We were introduced to our guide who, unfortunately did not speak very good English. This spoilt the tour for us as we kept missing bits. Also he wasn't very engaging and seemed bored. We found this totally unacceptable as we had paid a lot of money for the tour and will never do it again. We have given feedback to the company to this affect so, hopefully, things will improve. However, when it came to meeting the guide for the tour of the Roman Forums, it couldn't have been more different. Our guide was lovely, she was very interesting and spoke perfect English even though she was from Serbia. We gave very good feedback to the company for her. Just a shame same couldn't be said for the colosseum guide. Loved seeing it though due the the history obviously so I would still recommend doing the tour.

We booked this due to the fact it stated small tour and head sets. We waited over an hour at the start whilst being passed around to different organisers. No head sets. Group size was 30+. Further more entry to the attraction on this particular day was free. I have no idea what we paid £45 for but it was a rip off.

Hello We are sorry to hear about your bad experience with our agency. We inform you that every first Sunday of the month the colosseo is free but paying for us agencies not to queue. In addition the tour was guided and we pay the services of the guide and the radio. We present you our sincerest excuse. Sincerely vipinitaly

Our guide tor the Forum was rude, boring and a thorough time waster. One and a half hours later we had achieved nothing and it was near closing time. We did out own tour in the final 15 minutes available. Bitterly disappointing.
