Our tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome tour with Maria Helena was wonderful. Even though it was a rainy day, Maria Helena brought a sunny outlook as we explored Rome. She was very knowledgeable and incorporated many helpful aids via her ipad that brought the tour to life. We really enjoyed our tour with Maria Helena and highly recommend it to all!

David (“the one with pants”) Falashas was absolutely spectacular. He had 5 people hanging on his every word. So knowledgeable and witty. Didn’t want our time together to end. Helped us realize how incredibly fortunate we were to literally be walking in the footsteps of gladiators! This is THE tour to make your trip to Rome, epic!

We had a great tour! Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide! "Davide with pants" was so knowledgeable and funny! Loved the small size group tour, especially with covid restrictions. The underground was so fascinating. To be where the gladiators were, amazing..Lots of walking but totally worth it.

My husband and I were lucky enough to have Azzurra (tour guide) to ourselves for the afternoon. She was so polite, friendly and helpful. She was extremely knowledgeable about the city and the history of the Colosseum. She gave us recommendations for the remainder of our time in Rome and even played the role of photographer for the day, she captured some of the most beautiful photos as memories of our trip for us and knew all the best places to get the most amazing views and secrets of the city. Highly recommend to book a tour with this company who provide small and more intimate tours and more specialty this lady. We had a very enjoyable and comfortable day in her company.

Our tour was amazing! Marta, our guide was absolutely amazing. She gave us so much information, didn’t rush us, and pointed out any interesting details. It’s easily the best tour I’ve ever done. I’d recommend taking a tour with Marta to anyone. I really can’t praise this tour enough. We had an amazing time.

We had the best guide -- Giulia was truly amazing, knowledgeable, and friendly. I remember visiting the Colosseum 20 years ago and wanting to be able to walk through the underground, so we booked this tour on our trip. The access that this tour provides is unparalleled and gives you an understanding of the inner workings of the Colosseum including a perspective on life in the underground. The tour also included a walk up Palantine Hill with amazing views of the Forum. We wished the tour was actually longer -- to fully absorb all of the history and knowledge.

Our whole family loves history and being able to learn it first hand was an epic experience. Alessandra is a true professional and her mastery of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill left us in awe! The time flew by so fast and the day will be a fantastic memory for the rest of our lives. Thanks so much Alessandra!

Our tour of the Colosseum, the Forum and the Palatine Hill was amazing! My elderly mother was with us and our tour guide Julia was so patient and thoughtful in addition to being very knowledgeable, interesting and engaging. Being able to go underground and on the arena floor was amazing! I highly recommend this tour.

Did research on tour groups, given I had one day in Rome. Glad I chose Livitaly. Francesca was an excellent guide to the Colliseum (what a building!), Palatine Hill and an overview.of the forum. This tour did not take us to the forum level unfortunately but it did fill the 3.5 hours perfectly. We were left inside the forum perimeter to wander at leisure. As someone who studied Classics at college, but who now lives in Australia, this may have been a once in a lifetime trip. But well worth it.

In our group of 4, we had each been on a tour of the colosseum and forum at least once, but this tour was the best we’d ever done, by far.

Our amazing guide was Helena! She was able to give us lots of information, including many fascinating details taken from her own work as a local archaeologist. She made us feel welcome with her, and was very friendly and open with us.

Because we had experience with the area, we actually made some detours from the regular itinerary, where she showed us some spectacular sights we had never seen before!

She used images and videos from a tablet throughout the tour to illustrate her points, most helpful was showing how the ruins would have appeared in their prime.

This private experience is so worth it, you are having a private conversation where you control the pace and information, as opposed to following a large group and getting only the basic information.
