Pleasant overview of Rome

Top guided tour since there were only 2 of us with a very friendly and attentive young woman guide. We finished a little earlier than expected as there were only 2 of us and we were very comfortable riding the bike. The guide could have taken advantage of the 4 hours reserved to show us even more places.

Fue fantastico visitar 4 diferentes museos con la misma entrada. Mi favorido fue las Termas de Diocleziano. Pero también me gustó admirar las estatuas antiguas en Palacio Altemps. Muy interesante el recorrido andando por Roma con la aplicación audio guía para el móvil.
