This area is about 30 minutes walk from the main bus station (Termini). This area, as well as the other archeological sites nearby, are truly magnificent. There is a lot of armed security on site so is also safe to visit. Highly recommended

It was so worth the money to hire a private guide to tour Ancient Rome -- Pantheon, Forum, Colosseum -- areas. We were referred by friends to Sonia Tavoletta. She brought the areas to life with background, historical context, and interesting stories. And she moved us quickly through the entrance lines and throngs of people. Ancient Rome sites are a...

I must confess to be more interested in history from the Renaissance onwards but there is no better city to view ancient Roman buildings and artifacts.

Roman Empire and its ruins. A place where you can see the greatnes and amazing archtectural and engineering traits. A place where hundreds of years of antique history are still present. Many amazing buildings. Impressive architecture

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.

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
