    Intelligent organization Warm welcome the organization recontacts us just before the visit to be sure that we will not get lost for the appointment. The Guide for the visit of the Colosseum (which included the visit of the forums which we could not attend) was passionate, very cultural and lively with a walk and short stops for anecdotes in the Colosseum. Thank you. See you soon for another visit.
