Great guide, wonderful sights of ancient Rome and lots of walking.
Our guide was excellent. She had a good grasp of history, both ancient and modern, plus verbalized it very well. There was a lot of walking involved and she gave us breaks to get us ready for the next leg. The tour included the colosseum and Palatine hill which involved a lot of climbing - taking a break between these 2 subjects would have been a good idea.

Thorough and Interesting Tour
Sep. 2021 • Couples
We thought Flavia did a wonderful job. She very clearly condensed so much history and information into our 3 hour tour. She answered all of our questions. The tour was easy to book, the meeting point is on Via Frangipane which is very close to the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Three hours might seem like a lot, but there is so so so much to see. Highly recommend wearing comfy shoes, sunglasses and/or a hat, and bringing a small bottle of water (especially if going in warm weather).
