This tour includes the entrance and visit of many sites usually not included in the ordinary visits of the archeological area. A part the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, with both amazing views from the Terrace of Septimius Severus (overlooking the Circus Maximus) and the Farnese Terrace (overlooking the Roman Forum), we'll see several areas just opened: the amazing frescoes of the House of Augustus, Capanne Romulee (the very early huts of the Latins), the Church of the 40 martyrs, etc
We'll meet by the Coloseum. Here there is a Metro Station named Colosseo. Outside the Metro Station there is a green kiosk that sells newpapers: I'll be there holding a Gowithguide sign with your name on

Guide fee and Skiptheline Tickets to all Archeological Sites as per the Itinerary: Full Experience Tickets for the Coloseum and the Roman Forum
This is a walking Tour so no transportation included. No meals. No souvenirs
For Tours outside Rome, example Wine Tours in Umbria or to the Alban Hills (Frascati, Castelgandolfo, etc) or Tour of Orvieto and Assisi, I can rent a car and be both driver and guide
Depending on the availability of skiptheline entrances to the Coloseum, the itinerary might be done starting from the Roman Forum and ending with the Colosseum or viceversa.
Wear comfortable shoes and check the weather forecast: winter might be rainy and summer quite hot (have water, sun glasses and hat!)
We're going to pass through metal detectors so no scissors, knifes, no big bags and no metal or glass bottles (only plastic)
No, for them it was the Amphiteatro Massimo

Sergio took us on a comprehensive and intimate tour of the Forum and Colosseum. His plan included a visit to the beautiful house of Augustus and a visit to the area underneath the Colosseum where the gladiators and animals were kept. His knowledge of history and the enthusiasm with which he shared his passion for the city was the perfect start for our vacation. Even though I have studied Roman history, Sergio helped bring the jumble of facts in my head to life. He was a superb guide and a delight to spend the afternoon with -- he even sent us in the right direction to find a lovely lunch!
Hi guys, many thanks for this nice and very welcome evaluation. I look forward to meeting you again soon. Ciao Sergio
Amazing guide full of energy and wisdom. We were able to see all the requested locations in Rome and got to see the Independence Day Parade and Italy's President. Sergio took us to try the best Ice Creme ever, the pizza was amazing too. Thank you for everything Sergio.
Ciao Ali thanks for your nice words: it was a pleasure being with all of you: next time Iran! All my best Sergio
