What's tour about

A walk through Rome for the ones who want to jump into ancient times and explore them carefully. Let's go back to the ages of B.C. to see how lived the immortal city then, how it was born and what happened to it.
Visit the world-famous Colosseum where gladiator fights once were held. You'll have a chance to see the ancient temple of Venus and Roma and the house of Vestal Virgins. Take a look at the Roman Forum, the former political center of the city, and Trajan's market, which was a giant shopping mall in the past.
Put on your sunglasses, prepare your cameras for spectacular views and amazing pictures and get ready to travel to the past!

Note that entrance tickets are not included in the price of the tour, so you'll need to purchase them in advance.

It was completely worth it to be able to skip the line and take the tour. I imagine it would have been a two hour wait to get in and have to join huge groups with one guide speaking, otherwise

The Colosseum itself was mind boggling, and incalculable wealth must have been required, the forum also. Only 4 stars as we couldn't get the audio for first time, and having gone quickly round.

Visited with the family and these tours tickets were excellent as we had not planned ahead! The Colloseum is well worth it and everyone learned something.

Lovely tour! Downloading the app was straightforward... Adding the relevant audio guide requires the purchase code ... The app works great , you have to scan waypoints to make the audio guide continue, if you can't find one you get the option to skip the scan process and the audio guide continues.

Kids loved the interaction of the app , don't forget you need headphones.
