  • Skipping the line is a must! Make sure you are in the right spot for the tour. We were where they said, but apparently there is an upper and lower floor and we were waiting at the wrong spot. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable and it was all very interesting. However, the virtual reality was not worth it at all. Don't do it. Totally useless. And, our guide, while very knowledgeable, was very hard to understand.

  • We loved everything of this tour! The group is so small that it looks like you're simply going around with your friends and the guide is one of them. We skipped the long lines and enjoyed every moment. It's very interesting to be into the Colosseum and check how it was back in the days with the virtual reality glasses. I especially enjoyed the view from the Palatine Hill. Highly recommended!
