What you'll do

The Colosseum is one of the most visited archaeological sites in the world & attracts thousands of tourists each day.

It’s important that you have a reservation to skip the line &, considering it's fascinating history, a guide is ESSENTIAL.

Let me take care of all the details for your once in a lifetime experience. All you need to worry about is showing up!

You will find me waiting for you at the Arch of Constantine ready to welcome you to this wonder of the world. After a warm welcome, we enter the Colosseum through a priority reservation entrance. Inside the Amphitheater, you will discover the amazing past of the Colosseum & the mystery behind the notorious Gladiators from one of my handpicked expert guides. You will then have 20-30 minutes of free time inside to take photos and process your awe!

The Palatine Hill and Roman Forum is where my expertise lies. I doubt I’ve spent more time in another location in Rome during the 20 years I’ve called it home. I’ll share with you my expert knowledge and bring back to life the heart of a once bustling capital of the Romans! Finish by exploring the ruins of the Palaces of the Emperors and the birthplace of Rome.

Other things to note
Comfortable shoes.
Umbrella on a rainy day. (Luckily Rome doesn't get many of those!)
ID for European Union citizens under 25 years old.

Please wear a mask and if you like bring hand gel :)

I'm originally from London, but like many people in their early twenties, my sense of adventure got the better of me and I spent many years travelling the globe. I eventually wound up in Rome - a city that’s frozen in time and impossible not to fall in love with.

I’ve worked as a professional licensed guide in Europe for over 15 years now - meaning I’m not only an expert in Roman history, but also that of many other cultures across the continent.

For me, meeting people from all over the world is one of life’s greatest pleasures. I can guarantee to keep learning and history fun - so join me on a tour and let me share this amazing city with you.

we did the palatine hill, forum romanum, colloseum tour - it was a very nice and informative tour which isn’t easy at a place like the palatine/forum where you have so much history combined. Our guide Paolo explained everything very well and with lively stories. A must book tour!

My guide was Paulo. His passion and love of the history was emphatic. He truly made the experience personal, educational, and entertaining. After the tour, he went the extra mile and gave us recommendations for other activities and restaurants to go to (and avoid) in the city. You can tell he truly cares and it was an amazing experience. Couldn’t recommend it more.

Great way to see this landmark. You get a lot more depth on what you are seeing when you have a guide like ours.

We had an amazing time!! First we started off with the tour of the Coliseum with Barbara which was breathtaking. Barbara really breaks down the information into easy to understand and relatable chunks which was perfect. We loved the Coliseum tour so much that we decided to book a second tour with the company and we did the Vatican tour the next day. We did the Vatican tour and Sistine Chapel with Christina which was amazing and she had so much behind the scenes information that I have never read in a book or online before which was incredible. Russ and Collin the tour and website organizers went above and beyond with restaurant recommendations, transit tips, and any other questions my wife and I had which they answered quickly and thoroughly thru WhatsApp text messaging which really made our time in Rome one of the best trips we have been on.
