  1. I very much hope to visit Rome and explore some of Italy next year. I particularly want to experience the history and atmosphere still there. A guided tour sounds like a good idea, you learn so much more. think I might try and get on one!

    • Its really a great place and your right you do learn so much more when on a tour (typically!) We had a great guide and recommend looking into Walks of Italy if you are into history!

  2. Great read, when we were in Rome last year we did a walking tour which unfortunately didn’t include the skip the line entrance to the colosseum so we only got to see from the inside, so appreciate your photo taken inside. Reading your review on the tour we will definitely take a tour next time we go back and not just purchase tickets for the entry.

  3. Love Rome! I’ve been itching to get back lately. The last time I went I just wandered most of the city, which was awesome but I feel like I missed out on so much of the history. Next time I might look into this tour – thanks for the recommendation!

  4. These are great photos! I was at an event earlier this year celebrating Walks of Italy’s new venture “Walks of New York”! I got a shortened version of their tour of Times Square and Broadway. They are a really good guide to use.

  5. Great article, I loved the Colosseum too – Although I didn’t go with a guided tour so I didn’t learn as much about it’s history. I just enjoyed imagining what it would have looked like during its prime. Palantine hill looks wonderful – Love the photos, there is something magical about walking through ancient history

  6. I have read various posts on Rome recently and all of them, in particular this one, really makes me excited about heading to Italy in December later this year. A tour of the Colosseum would be awesome I am sure but I am convinced the difficult part of visiting Rome is actually deciding what to do and what not to do especially if you only have a few days to explore.

    Thanks for sharing your experience and amazing pictures!
