    Amazing building, definitely worth the visit. Beware of the guys selling scarfs outside of the building, they almost ruined the visit by following you around offering their merch .

    Useful audio guide. All of the basics were included. You can get the overall picture about the Colosseum and it's history. Of course, priority entry line is also big benefit. Would definitely recommend.

    The Roman Forum was impressive! The whole area is still being excavated and it's really impressive. Go inside to see the light shows on the interior walls that play every 10min or so.

    We booked a guided tour through Gray Line and so glad as we skipped the massive queues waiting to get in. We had an audio headset throughout the tour.

    This place is amazing and the Romans architecture of their time is out of this world. Those Romans were extremely smart people.

    Our guide was personal and engaging throughout the whole two hours. The tour included the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. There is lots and lots of walking.

    Interesting that Gray Line tours will pick you up from your hotel but you need to get yourself home.

    Navonna has chjanged for the worse in one respect. The restauirants have always charged a premium for the location. But now it is a magnet for street vendors and con men of every stripe. Not as aggressive as some places but beware.

    This place is very beautiful and unique. There are so many details in this temple. I spent one hour for a watch that fantastic place.

    A beautiful fountain and definitely a must-see for your first time in Rome. However, I wouldn't go out of my way to see it ever again. It is in such a busy and touristy area and it was so busy you had to squeeze your way to the front just to get a photo unobstructed. Watch out for pickpockets here due to the tight quarters between people and keep your belongings right in front of you with a hand on them.

    One of the World's most impressive art collections. If you dont mind not having air con and out of control crowds, Vatican musems HUGE and incredible collection. Borghese a fraction of the size but many times more pleasant because you can actually enoy the treasures. This is currently impossible at Vatican musems regardless of what tour sellers promise. They have no capacity controls, or if they do they are several times too large. People were fainting right in front of us yesterday from heat stroke and claustrophia from the completely unsafe overcrowding.

    We loved our visit across the river to Trastevere and wish we had more time spent here. I'm glad we didn't base here as it would be quite a walk to most of the attractions in Rome. However, it is definitely worth a visit - lots of great little cafe's and restaurants. Be sure to visit the white tents along the river if you're there in the summer months!

    Amazing place to visit (particularly on a hot day (it’s a constant 15c inside) and astonishing to realise how big this building was. Our guide was good but the information given was a little repetitive and the tour felt rushed. There is so much to see but you are shepherded from one point to the next very quickly. We brought up the rear of our group and loitered taking pics and looking at the incredible rooms / bits of fresco, and that worked for us. The VR was good. Think we’d have preferred being able to wander through in our own time, guided by info boards, but maybe that will come in the future.

    I have waited decades to see the statues in this museum. I had a heart in the throat moment when I wen to the hall of the she-wolf, and the iconic Romulus and Remus statue wasn't there -- ! There is a spectacular atrium filled with natural light.That statue is there -- along with so many other spectacular works. I was surprised (and delighted) to see an Artemis Ephesus (a nice example). To get to the Dying Gaul and other Roman statues, there are in a separate building (enter via a subterranean hallway). Great sandwich bar for a cheap lunch (and a beautiful rooftop terrace restaurant). Note: this museum is not air conditioned and has a long, hot walk from the street up to the entrance. Well worth the wait.

    So much fun! We rented out a rickshaw to ride around the park and also rented a rowing boat on the pond. We really enjoyed it

    The superb range of paintings. Just to see the Caravaggios and Guercinos would be enough. At the time we went which was pre booked the visitors were few and therefore very comfortable to view the objects.The audio commentary is informative and perceptive. Only constructive suggestion will someone please go around and straighten the 3 or 4 paintings which are no longer hanging straight. They are annoying.

    Beautiful city center. The one and only Rome. It feels like every building is historic and with great cultural meaning.
