Wonders revealed and explained
Nov 2021
Lucia was our guide and she gave an excellent tour ! She was able to describe the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum in great detail and show how the buildings and area would have looked in Ancient Rome. She was very passionate about her subject and we learned so much from her. When she brought us over to the Colosseum she was able to point out details that we would not have noticed and despite the crowds, was able to navigate the area with a practiced ease. There is no doubt that she knows and loves her subject and her talent lies in how she is able to communicate that to a group and engage them in the experience. She welcomed any and all questions and we were truly sorry when the tour ended. I would highly recommend the tour !

Amazing
Jul 2021 • Family
We absolutely enjoyed our tour with Giovanni. It was VIP tour. The fact that there were no headphones (small group of 5) made this tour special. We could ask Giovanni lots of questions and my 11 and 9 year old managed to do well on 3 hour tour. They were really interested in stories behind the scenes about the animals and gladiators. Highly recommend this agency!
