Amazing Tour!

I had an amazing time walking around the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill! Our tour guide was amazing! Even with the terrible heat, she helped us stay as cool as we could by finding shade for us when she talked. The only way to visit these amazing sites is with a tour guide; otherwise, you're missing out on the amazing history!

Had a great time!

Our guide was very knowledgeable making the Colosseum and Roman Forum more than just a collection of ruins but rather a physical representation of the stories they told us.

Great Info About Archeological Remains

SiriKit was an excellent tour guide! He had extensive knowledge about the archaeological remains. The only downside was the cancellation of the underground tour a few weeks beforehand, but this was not the guide's fault.

Review - The Best of Colosseum & Ancient Rome With Exclusive Arena Access | Semi-Private Tour with Alessandro

Alessandro’s enthusiasm and personal slant of the colosseum’s history and his knowledge of the forum made this a very enjoyable tour. His passion for history was infectious and helped make our stay in Rome more memorable as details he mentioned became apparent during visits to other sites. An excellent tour and definitely worth the early start.

Colosseum Tour of my Dreams!

Wow! What an outstanding experience. We were so lucky to be on the Colosseum tour with Arena Access + Ancient Rome with Caterina M. She was such a fantastic host and shared with us interesting and entertaining facts about the history of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, plus was able to help answer all of our questions as the small group really makes for a more personal tour. Not to mention, she is quite the photographer, so make sure to take advantage when she offers to take pictures, as we got some really beautiful shots to help us capture the memories. HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking this incredible tour and HIGHLY RECOMMEND Caterina! Thank you LivTours!

Simply wonderful

My wife and myself really liked this tour. It was very interesting and it was something really special being there at the Colosseum and Forum. Our guide Gil made our trip worthwhile. Not only he was nice but very knowledgeable. He explained and answered all our questions and made it easy for us to take photos in very good spots. We really recommend this tour.

The Best of Colosseum & Ancient Rome With Exclusive Arena Access | Semi-Private Tour with Serafina

Christine and I had an amazing experience with the "Liv" tour, guided by the incredibly knowledgeable Serafina. Her expertise in art history truly enriched our tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Serafina's storytelling brought ancient Rome to life, making the history and significance of these iconic sites come alive. She was professional, personable, and one of the best tour guides we have ever had. Even though there was so much information and ground to cover, we never felt rushed. Serafina was passionate about the history and took the time to answer all our questions. She even spent her own time giving us recommendations for other sights to see in Rome, as well as places to eat and shop. The only problem we encountered was trying to find the meet-up point. It was hidden and kind of hard to find compared to all the other tour group meeting spots. Despite this minor inconvenience, we highly recommend the "Liv" tour and Serafina for an unforgettable journey through Rome's rich history. -George

Above and beyond

What a wonderful, engaging tour! The small group of six people is perfect for moving about these busy sights swiftly and easily. Our guide Dennis was enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable of Rome's rich history. He went out of his way to make sure everyone in our group was included and comfortable... allowing for restroom breaks and pointing out water fountains. Dennis seemed to know every ticket-taker and checkpoint guard. Our college-age son is functionally fluent in Italian, and Dennis engaged and encouraged him. We're already keeping LivTours in mind for our next trip!

Fantastic Tour

We really suggest this tour as it was very insightful and informative. Our guide Guilliermo was very nice and he paced the tour easily so we didn’t tire ourselves and Gill answered all the questions that we had and more. He also suggested where best to take photos. Really recommend this tour.
