Excellent introduction to Rome

Our guide Josephine gave an informative description of everything we saw. Our Skip The Line tickets eliminated waiting in queues. After seeing the Colosseum and The Forum we were taken in limousine to see sights in Rome. Our driver gave a good commentary and stopped a a number of places go give us a closer view or to take photos. Combining this with the Colosseum and The Forum worked well.
