Interesting if you visit the Colosseum and the Borghese Gallery because you have to book in advance to avoid queues. Transport included if you want to save time when traveling to other visits with the benefit of discounts.

The tour guide was incredibly informative and accommodating. We loved visiting the Roman Forum and learning of the various surrounding temples before standing in the footsteps of gladiators.
