Next, visit the Roman Forum to see where the center of Roman social, political, and religious life took place.

    The tour exceeded our expectations thanks to the tour guide, Andreada (sorry if I’m misspelling it). She had such an extensive knowledge about the places we visited and shared it in a very engaging way with all of us. I loved the fact that we got the headsets thanks to which we could hear her clearly even in the most crowded parts of the tour. Overall, if you’re short on time during your visit in Rome and you wanna learn/see as much as possible- look no further.

    It was a workout, on a hot Roman day. But the overall experience was excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable and made a point throughout the tour to make personal connections with each person in the group. My wife, a history major, completely enjoyed discussing the history of the area with our guide. Buon lavoro!

    We enjoyed a fantastic outing with our knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide, Andrada. She was full of interesting things to share about ancient life and historical events related to the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. It was both insightful and fun, and I heartily recommend it to anyone visiting Rome.
