Really nice guide with excellent knowledge. It was a.half private tour with a small group of 7 people. There were enough time for all kind of questions, which Alessand was happy to answer.

Great place. New areas opened recently. The one issue was the ticket didn’t specify the full experience on it, so we had to negotiate each and every entrance. That made it a little difficult.

the experience in the coliseum was great. the only problem that the place to get the ticket is a bit far as well as the wait to get it. everything else as explanation and attitude was good
