We were disappointed with our City Wonders tour of the Colesseum. Firstly, you are asked to be at the meeting point at 9.45am, but you are not allowed into the Colosseum until 10.30. Rather a long wait with kids. Secondly, it’s not mentioned on our...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

There is a lot of walking involved, but it’s all at a slow place with lots of breaks. The meeting place is right beside the Vatican museum entrance, and the Sistine chapel is inside the Vatican walls.

City wonders is great for both. The Vatican museums are so incredibly crowded so be prepared. The coliseum tour is incredible.
