We arrived at the Colosseum with no plan and were quickly wooed by a woman offering a tour of Colosseum, Palatine and Forum for 40 Euros, with bonus of going into the arena floor at Colosseum. It felt a little shady, but ended up working...More

Like the last few reviewers said, the tour of the Colosseum, Palatino, and Roman Forum with Mitch was excellent. We were impressed by his humor and use of cultural references (movies, TV shows, and world politics) to explain things. His English was not accented and...More

As everyone says, the Colosseum/Forum tour with Mitch and Radu is the best, as long as the group size is not too big. Loud & clear English and there's a fascinating narrative, not just a string of unconnected names & dates like most tours. Even...More

Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is
the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in
a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is
a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and
wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every

gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but
that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets,
