One stood out it was a man from Italy wonders. He was genuine and not too pushy. Got a great price then we were esscorted around the sites by a... More

Went to the Coliseum as you have to if you have flown all that way. It's obviously an ancient ruin and therefore loads of it missing but was alittle disappointed by it all ... didn't think it was that amazing... I maybe had a different ideas of what I would see. We paid for the guided tour, for two reasons... More

We had a great time on a tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum. Our tour guide "Fe" (Felicity), had tons of energy and did a wonderful job touring us around and teaching us all about the exciting history of Roma. We were there during the off season, so tickets were available the same day (not sure if... More

The 3 hour tour started at 11.30am so no problems getting across Rome early in the morning. Our guide was Denis, an archaeology graduate who had all of the information we could have wanted at his fingertips. He was happy to linger and answer questions from the small group - we never felt rushed. Even as we waited in the... More

We were in a small group of people led by a very knowledgeable guide. The young people probably found his detail about the technical side of building the Colosseum and the materials used not quite as interesting. It is quite unbelievable to be standing in the place of people who lived so long ago and finding out about the gladiators... More

While I don't always recommend tour guides, this one I think is a must. If you don't have a guide, it's hard to understand what your looking at and imagine the history and importance of the Coliseum. Arrive early and book a tour in advance would be my recommendation. Now if you book in advance arrive early so you can... More

The guided bus tour is your best option if you want to see Rome in a day. Cost €20 per person and it takes you to the most interesting parts of the city and to the Vatican as well.

Such a great tour - would definitely recommend doing the tour rather than just paying to go into the colosseum. You get way more information and you get to go to parts of the colosseum that the basic ticket doesn't get you. If you get a tour guide called Hilaria, you're in luck, she's great!

We were just two people on the tour done by Joy of Rome and we were so lucky to have Angelica as our guide. She seems to know absolutely everything and even though she told us a lot of facts it was done in such an interesting way that I think we won't easily forget what we learned yesterday. She... More

Definitely worth having a guided tour to get the most out of visiting the Coliseum. You get to see all of it from top to bottom, my tour guide was very nice and informative. I really enjoyed my visit!

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
