GET GINO MARGIOTTA AS YOUR GUIDE.

Had to put that in caps and up front because he was soooooo good.

We did two tours with Dino and could not have had a better guide for our family of 4 including two jaded teenagers. He was interesting, but how he described the sights and the off beat settings he included could not have been more perfect. He lets you set the pace, fast or slow, in depth or an overview. Booked through Viator.

An amazing area that centers within it all that is left of ancient Rome.
Impressive and very exciting to walk in the area and imagine what was here in the years when the area was active.
The tour of the place is limited in time.
Recommend buying a ticket that includes the visit to the Colosseum.
Worth every euro.

The beginning of Rome is there starting with the Colosseum visit followed by the picturesque surroundings, followed by the Hill & the forum, followed by too many attractions in sequence. It deserves an early morning start of activities to catch up more and more of the ancient empire.

We had spent a wet morning in the Colosseum but the sun had then come out and we walked extensively through and around the almost deserted Forum.
There are plenty of signs and descriptions of the major buildings of interest in both Italian and English so, armed with a guide book there was no need to hire the mobile audio kit. We only spent half a day here but you could imagine that, in normal times with loads of crowds, it would take longer

History still standing strong and beautiful, this is how I view ancient Rome. The structures has stood the test of time. From the Colosseum, Palestine Hill the Roman Forum and other archaeological site. The remnants are still intact for the future generations to appreciate and enjoy. All structure are well lit up at nights, which add to the beauty of the remnants.

I have just completed a virtual, interactive tour of Ancient Rome with Franco. It was excellent! I was able to add significantly to the experience my husband and I had when visiting in February, before the lockdown, by getting a better idea of where things were and how things operated in Ancient Rome. It also gave me better insights into the structure of the Colosseum and where significant events happened, like the assassination of Julius Caesar. Franco was very good, making good use of pictures and diagrams with arrows pointing things out and he responded to my questions very quickly. This was my first interactive, virtual tour and I enjoyed it. Being able to ask questions via the chat box at the side was useful. The various polls asked along the way was a bit of a surprise, and challenge, but I managed to answer all the questions correctly. They were not too hard thank goodness :) I appreciate the effort Franco put in to make the tour interesting and informative.

Ancient Rome makes Greece seem like a small village. I’ve been to Greece several times and the sights and history are amazing, but Rome is on a completely different (massive) scale. The sights of Ancient Rome are simply overwhelming and seemingly everywhere! Roman Forum, Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Circus Maximus, Forum of Nerva... One cannot possibly digest all of the history and information here. Just take it in, see the sights, appreciate the history and wear comfortable walking shoes!

It was a great experience when you realize that at one time Roman soldiers and citizens once walked here.

This stop was not in the plan; we found ourselves stopping by and the ruins ended up being one of the more interesting sights.

We booked a 3hour Private Ancient Rome tour through Carrani Tours. (Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill Guided Tour) Our drivers and guide, Nancy arrived punctually. Nancy was an extremely knowledgeable and infectiously enthusiastic guide who was obviously proud of her Roman heritage and loves what she does. Her English is excellent. Being able to skip the long queues at the Colosseum (Flavian Amphitheatre) was a huge time-saving bonus. We visited the Colosseum and Forum area. The tour concluded behind the “Wedding Cake” where we were given the choice to be taken back to out hotel or remain to explore on our own. We chose the latter and headed to the Pantheon with its stunningly beautifully preserved interior.
Nancy explained the where we could find the location of the assassination of Julius Caesar (the Senates’ location near the Pantheon) and, while in the forum, the ruin of the altar on which his body was cremated. A thoroughly entertaining and informative tour.
