Bits of Tour

I was worried to book a good tour as there are such a huge number of tour operators. I didn't know which to go with. We were outside Colosseum and got the last minute deal for the last slot from this website. This tour ended up as one of the most enjoyable tours. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and phenomenal at recounting the tale of the spots. We were amazed with her own additional bits of explanation and considerations.

Splendid guide

I forgot the name of the youthful female antiquarian who accompanied us on this visit. However she was splendid. Her insight and excitement were profoundly irresistible and made the experience remarkable. She also picked us from the meeting point which was a little difficult to find out.

Guided tour is way to go

It goes without saying that the Colosseum is a must-visit place if you are not even a history freak. That being said, a guided tour is also a must to know everything about ancient Rome in an excellent way. I enjoyed the tour. Book the Colosseum ticket a few days earlier and notify the agency to include your in a small sized group. Enjoy.

The highlight of our trip

We were searching for the best agency to do the Colosseum tour. The day before our trip to the colosseum, my wife and I were sitting in a coffee shop. We had a chit chat with the owner of the shop. My wife asked him a few questions about the Colosseum tours. Upon his recommendation we booked this tour from Rome tour tickets and we were not disappointed at all. Underground tour with gladiator’s arena was the special attraction and we also received skip the queue entry that saved our time. We also got the chance to visit the forum and palatine Hill. The excitement of walking in the footsteps of gladiators and the mesmerizing view in the Colosseum was a great memory of our trip. Later we thanked the Coffee shop owner Silvia for her recommendation. This tour is highly recommended if you are in Rome.

Wonderful tour

It was very cool to see the underground area with plenty of Information. Worth it as the tour also included palatine hill and the roman forum. Our guide helped us by narrating interesting stories. I didn’t get a chance to grasp how the time passed by. I enjoyed it to the fullest!

Want to go again

We did the Colosseum underground tour with gladiator’s arena and it was a great experience. I was in total awe when headed upstairs to the various levels. I loved this tour. I highly recommend this tour if you want to step your foot wherever you want inside the Colosseum.

we all enjoyed in amazement

There are such a large number of visits to look over to this landmark. I wanted to see everything in the Colosseum so I picked this tour as it had underground and arena floor access. We got a faster entry that helped us to avoid the long queue. Guide took us to the underground area and explained so many historical details of ancient Rome. We climbed up to the arena floor and enjoyed the amazing view from there. After we left the Colosseum, we headed toward the Roman forum and palatine hill where we saw all the ruins and broken structures and learned all the backstories from our guide. I was in complete amazement of all aspects of this visit.

Loved the stories of history

Although Rome is full of historical places, but we had enjoyed the most iconic one, the Colosseum. Our tour started with the magnificent monuments, Colosseum. We were inside there about an hour and after that we headed to Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Our tour group had an amazing guide. We were grateful that Venera was our guide. She helped us during the whole tour and kept everyone entertained. We were amazed by the massive structures and designs with her precise explanations and great humor.
