Qualified Tourist Guide in Rome, Paola Bernardini gave us the tour of our entire Cruise. She took us places and we saw things Royal Caribbean passengers did not see. We went to the front of the line at the Vatican. We saw Palatine Hill with...More
Perhaps the most ancient part of the Forum/Colosseum complex it proffers excellent views of the Forum and Rome beyond. Ruins are more spread out than in the Forum below and you definitely need a guidebook or guide to put it into historical context with everything...More
Only €12 for entry, including entrance to the colosseum an absolute bargain - so much to see and explore. Its a big area so give yourself a while to give it the time it deserves. Best to go early to avoid the queues. Highlight has...More
A must-see in Rome. Frustratingly slow entrance process with only 1 security guard and no formal queue area so people just push their way in. Have visited both as part of a guided tour and on our own and we recommend doing it on your...More
This would be a five star review except for the lack of information provided. I wish the desk had offered us a brochure or something explaining what we were looking at. We couldn’t figure out where people were getting earphones from. There were none at...More
We did this as part of an organised tour which I would thoroughly recommend as whilst it is possible to get a feel for the place the background information and knowledge really helps to understand the history and power struggles that Rome and it's Empire...More
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.

No as others have said 2 separate places 2 separate lines. Likely to be very long in summer and very hot. water out of the water fountains is free so don't be duped into buying from the guys. It is well organised and moves... More
No as others have said 2 separate places 2 separate lines. Likely to be very long in summer and very hot. water out of the water fountains is free so don't be duped into buying from the guys. It is well organised and moves quickly though so don't despair.

Hi, we were on a private tour with Rolling Rome in a golf cart that started at 10: a.m. and it was amazing and in depth of even sights we would have never visited, plus the city highlights. We did not go back for a detailed tour since I have mobility issues. You would have to contact your the company that sold you the tickets and see what they could do about an earlier entry. Or see which companies get in there earliest and get a refund on your tickets, if possible. I found a lot of my info just googling over the year I researched prior to the trip. We had this tour our first full day in Rome since we previously planned that due to jet lag decided we would sleep in a bit to help rest after traveling, plus it gave us a tremendous overview. We are older, though, and you may be up to working in some general sights before the Colosseum. There is an awful lot within walking distance of the Colosseum, especially going north toward Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps, I am talking 10 to 25 minute distances, so keep that in mind. Study your maps, learn them, and every guide you can get your hands on. I learned an awful lot from Rick Steves guides and videos on You Tube. I always like to hit the ground running and save time (money) by knowing where to go and how to get there no matter where I travel.
