We had booked a 5 day tour from Rome to Amalfi with tours in Naples Pompeii and Capri and Sorrento plus we extended our Amalfi stay by 3 nights. We were picked up from our hotel on time and then taken to the place where the tour started - which was also where the chaos started. There were hundreds of... More

We did the Rome, Assisi, Florence, Siena, Venice, etc tour and it was fabulous. We especially want to thank Patrizia and Sabatino for making the trip fun and relaxing at the same time! We can also say that Patrizia has a great singing voice as she was singing as we drove to montepulciano! Good food, good hotels and bus was... More

We only just arrived in Rome today & we were looking forward to the 'Rome by night tour' - it was enjoyable & our guide was helpful & knowledgeable. We were however very disappointed at the tour completion when we were told by the curt tour operator that they would deliver us back to our hotel, by this time it... More

We booked a tour of Ancient Rome & The Colosseum through our holiday company so we assumed they would use a good tour company. We were bitterly disappointed. The guide arrived late giving a long winded excuse about not realising he had to work in the afternoon as well as the morning! Throughout the tour he waffled on about things... More

My friend and I booked this tour in advance during our trip to Italy. It was pretty much what I expected = a big group of tourists, slow moving to get into the Colosseum due to lines, listening to the tour guide through ear buds. It was a hot day, so our elderly tour guide needed to take breaks as... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to do more than just walk around the sites, especially the major ones such as the colosseum, palatine hill, and roman forum. We gained access to these locations (skipping the long lines) by doing this tour and learned so much in the process. But a HUGE thanks to our tour guide Maicon who made it... More

I should have guessed all was not going to be well for this extra on our trip to Rome. Run by Carrani Tours it is supposed to be a romantic getaway from the hustle and bustle of Rome to a picturesque medieval village just outside Rome where a chef will cook a meal of your choice in a comfortable apartment....

We went on a Rome on one day tour. It was a faboulous but totally exhausting ten hour trip, to the Vatican and the Colosseum. Great guides with pure passion for the history and storytelling made our day. Well worth the money!

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
