Colosseum - construction and charm
Sep 2021
Our first day in Rome, on the Hop On Bus, because we were too jet-lagged to walk! We passed by the Colosseum, and experienced the old with the new: a construction crane, portapotties, fix it up before it falls down! Good to be attentive!

The Colosseum is a definitely a must see while in Rome. Definitely buy your tickets in advance so you do not have to wait in line. We did not do a guided tour just because we did not want to be inside for four hours. We did a walk-through by ourselves and just looked at all the history. It’s crazy actually say yes in person after being taught in school about the Romans and the Colosseum and all the history that goes with it. I would also recommend going earlier in the day because it can get a little hot in the evening and there’s not much shade.

Fantastic site
Sep 2021 • Friends
Fantastic site where you could let your imagination run wide. I didn’t pay for a guide around the colosseum as I have been before but if you want to know history in detail I would shop around before you buy as a lot of tours just drop you off and ask you to use your telephone with an app (not recommend)

Great tour
Sep 2021
We did a tour of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill with City Wonders Tours. We thought the tour was interesting, informative, and well-organized. The tour leader, Michelli, was terrific. He has extensive knowledge and shared information in an enjoyable way. We were very happy with this tour.

Marcus is the best guide you could ever have
Sep 2021
Marcus was INCREDIBLE. 10/10 recommend his as your guide. He knows exactly what you want to see and how long to spend (and very graciously gives you time to take your own photos at the right times). He also has so many amazing stories that you aboslutely could not get anywhere else. This guy has a true passion for history and it shows. Such a genuine person. We are SO GLAD we took the tour with him.
