Rosy provided us with a very informative tour. We learned a lot about the history and architecture of the Colosseum. Seeing the underground aspects of the Colosseum and areas less disturbed over the millennia was fascinating. Rosy also shared some additional information on nearby attractions in Ancient Rome that we really enjoyed.

Our guide, Benjamin, was very fully and full of knowledge. It was very nice to skip the line and go straight in. We had a group of 9 people, three of whom were our children, and Benjamin made it interesting for all of us! Highly recommend! It was also nice to have entrance tickets to the Forum and Palatine Hill.

An enriching experience capable of falling in love with Roman culture. The guide Alessandro, friendly, charismatic, knowledgeable and with his contribution you can appreciate and learn more about the history and beauty of the amphitheater. Without a doubt, it is worth the cost of the service. It is totally recommended to do the guided tour when you come to the Colosseum and ask for Alessandro if your visit is in Spanish.
