What people are saying about Lazio

With a three year old and six year old, the tour was absolutely fantastic for our party! Our guide kept the six year old fully engaged for almost three hours. Should we stop over in Rome in the near future, we’ll be using the same guide service for other attractions in Rome!!

The person stood outside, right at the entrance. You show him the booking, he/she gives you the ticket, took less than 1 min. Just show up on time.

Such a fun experience for both adults and kids. My son loved it! He was a Gladiator for a morning. Recommended

Interesting Place, but hard to find , if you use Google maps.
