Colosseum is a must-visit attraction with a catchy monumentality, interesting history & wonderful atmosphere! David as our guide was super optimistic and showed us around perfectly! His commentary was informative & enjoyable, just how I expected. I'd follow him on another sightseeing no doubts! I have only two things to note for improvement. The first would be having a bit more time to make photos – I was cool with the tour tempo, yet my girlfriend would prefer having some breaks at the most photogenic points. Taking the pictures after the tour might get complicated as officially, returning back to the higher floors is not allowed due to the crowds – Colosseum is basically a one-way track. Second thing – the meeting point organisation could be improved. There are multiple guides meeting at the very same place so having a clear branding (logo or something) would greatly help finding the proper guide group, especially when arriving “just on time”. Otherwise, great experience!

Highly recommend the tour of the Colosseum. The guide was good and really helped to give us a little more insight to life in the past. This tour also includes the forum and palintine hill so you dont need to book those separately. It is very hot and there is very little shade, but obviously this isnt anything to do with the tour, but definitely take water and a hat.

Very nice guided tour, just a few people but in the middle of August nothing surprising. We learn a lot of things, and the guide is super nice! And especially especially especially we do not queue to enter the forum, and considering the hell it is, we are happy! 75 minutes is good, it allows you to discover the Colosseum in depth without spending 3 hours there.
