What people are saying about Palatine Hill

Worth having a guide and booking a skip-the-line tour.

Our guide gave us a useful commentary (Antonio), and this helped us understand better what we were seeing. Also, we didn't have to queue as long (buy a proper sun umbrella or good sunhat before visiting Rome, as the heat is relentless if you are walking around all day).

Really enjoyed this tour, would definitely recommend it

We went on our tour with a brilliant guide Barbara. She was very informative, easy to understand, patient (waiting for people to use the toilet/fill water bottles/walking up steps ect), interesting and funny. She was a brilliant guide! We got to through the gladiator door onto the floor which was a really good experience because only our tour was down there. The tour lasted about 3 hours, but it flew in, even though we were walking in over 30°c heat. But our guide always found us abit of shade to stand in while explaining information. Couldnt recommend her enough as a guide!

Fantastic tour of the Palatine Hill and Colosseum.

Our guide Benjamin was excellent and combined a wealth of knowledge with a great sense of humour. He made the tour a very enjoyable experience and we would certainly rate it as value for money and recommend it.

Pay the extra for the underground tour - you won't regret it!

The fantastic information we learnt from our guide was amazing. Not on many occasions can you say you were shown round by an actual archaeologist, and you could tell she was so knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the colesseum. We were lucky it was not a busy day for some reason so didnt have any problems going through the strict security. We were in a small group of around 10 so it was much more personal than the big groups we saw. Also we had special access to the upper level too for some amazing photo opportunities. Would definitely recommend this excursion.

Amazing! But Watch Out for Street Sellers!

The Colosseum amazing to imagine you are walking where noble Roman's have walked. See the "ruts" in the roads where chariots have driven over & over, the cremation site of Julieus Ceasar, so much history. Our guide was knowledgeable & made the trip interesting. Be prepared for lots of walking and some very steep stairs. We went beginning of June it was 29 degrees, so take sun hats, cream and water. Watch out for local sellers everywhere very insistent you buy their wares, especially don't stop to have your picture taken with men dressed as Gladiators they take your phone to take picture of you with them, then DEMAND 20€ per person literally pinning me to wall until I handed over the money. My advise is get yourself a t/shirt with NO on it and just avoid eye contact. This is the only thing that spoils the trip, but they don't seem to be regulated or controlled by the police and are at every major tourist attraction. Watch Out!
