What people are saying about Rome

Because we wanted a different experience this time we accessed a tour with virtual reality glasses. It was a perfect choice to better understand the grandeur of the place visited but also to better enter the "story of the place". An excellent idea that I hope to meet again at other tourist attractions such as the Romanian Forum and more. The guide who accompanied us took great care to explain what we have to do but also to make this interactive experience for children and teenagers. The little surprise at the end was welcome and will help us remember the place visited but also the wonderful experience at the Colosseum.

Super friendly and helpful guide. Everything worked fine. The graphics are certainly no longer up-to-date. And yet after a few minutes you were completely immersed in the world. Interesting that there was once a huge fountain in front of the Colosseum. We didn't know until now. It would be great if there would also be VR from the Palatine and Roman Forum. Here in particular it would be extremely interesting to move in the world of yesteryear.

Really nice way to get around Rome. It's nice and fast, you can get everywhere and it's a lot more comfortable than a scooter! We rented the bike for 3 hours and this time it lasts easily and (about 40km) had half the battery left. Highly recommended!

Really positive experience but even more than the experience itself I leave my 5 stars to Cristina before she followed me in the booking and to Marta after she was a force of nature and a love with our children.

A brilliant tour with Lucy who shared so many wonderful secrets of Rome and made the tour a top part of our break away.
