Brilliant day at The Coliseum

We did a small group tour of the coliseum. Our tour guide was amazing, he was knowledgeable, interesting and funny. We could not recommend it highly enough.

Highly recommend

The smaller group size was ideal as we were able to ask questions and actually interact with our guide and the other tourists. Seeing the Colosseum and Roman Forum in this way was a dream come true! Would highly recommend this!
