Don't just go to the Colosseum. There is so much more to see like it! This is so much to see here. Go and take your time and look at everything and be in awe of what must have been so long ago that you can barely grasp it!

Larger area that covers all ancient sites it's a highlights of a visit to Rome and Italy in general. There is so many places to see and things to learn about whereabouts of Romans, few days at least to see most of it, but it's definitely worth it.

Centrally located for all common tourist sites. Very quiet 3rd floor apartment with elevator. A wee bit frayed in decoration and structurally but clean. A piano, a kitchenette and 2 good sized bedrooms. The power went out a couple of times and I had to play electrician to flip the circuit breaker. I'd stay there again.

Beautiful ruins of ancient rome. So much to see! You can walk around here for hours. Bring water and your walking shoes. The history here is just amazing. So happy to be able to have been there and in Rome.

Absolutely unmissable event- night guided tour through Forum of Caesar. Starts at 21:00. Amazing! Every visitor receives the earphones and goes through the forum. Then the adventure begins. You will be watching the ruins but they become alive and populated. You will be told about the realities of living in those times, then a brief account on the Julius Caesar... More

We were a party of 4 and we hired Francesca for her Layers of Rome tour. She was excellent. The best thing is she doesn't tell boring history facts and figures. She tells history in a story form so it is very interesting. She also helps you understand that the past and the present are really one. Her presentation is... More

Nowhere else that I have ever been has been as entrancing as the ruins of Rome. They are interspersed throught the city and are plentiful.

I just came back from a 8 days tour package to Harbin with Hong Thai Travel Pte Ltd. It was a total disappointment with some unhappy incidents with Hong Thai Travel. Firstly, was the flight arrangement. Before deposit was paid, the itinerary stated that we will fly to Harbin via Shanghai (one stop}. However, last minute we were told that... More

Rome encompasses 20 centuries of history. Not only the archaeological findings of the fora and buildings of the Roman Empire in the area between Colosseum and Piazza Venezia, but the Colosseum itself and the Pantheon are 20 centuries old. All over the historic center of Rome, places with archaeological findings can be encountered, to give one example, Largo di Torre... More

Walking into the landscape near where the Ceasars lived and the Apostle Paul wrote to churches, and he and others, were imprisoned. Near the Colosseum where so much of history took place and the Romans govern one third of the world... was awesome and overpowering. I was inspired and challenged to make our world better. More kindly, accepting, and loving.
