It is an activity that is worth booking from the application because the demand is very great and you really save yourself the long lines to enter. We really liked the whole route but I think it is not necessary to set a meeting point because one thinks that you are going to meet someone and it is not like that, it is only to arrive and show the coupon. The route is fantastic, you have to bring water because it is very hot and there is nowhere to buy inside. Congratulations for the application

This was an Excellent eperience, our guide David was absolutely wonderful and knowledgable, he took me and two my two children (10 and 14) on a great roudabout of Rome and made sure that whatever we did not see on foot by then, we covered on bikes. It was definetly one of the best choices I could have made to spend our last day in Rome! I absolutely RECOMMEND!!!!

Giulia was great with the kids, and while it was not an intellectually advanced tour (because it is kid focused), she was very engaging and clearly knows and enoys sharing Roman history. Thanks!

It was just 8 of us and it was easy to find the location and guide. The guide was super knowledgeable and did her best to keep us in shaded areas on a very hot day.

Very uncomplicated, quick process when entering, were allowed in 10 minutes before admission.
