About this experience
A must-do experience when in Rome is visiting the Colosseum! You can’t come to Rome and miss this — so if you’re only going to do one “toursity thing” in Rome — let this be it.
But — we know you're not in Rome just to line up at the main sights — you want to see the backstreets and get away from the crowds too. With this tour — you get the best of both worlds, in a compact half-day.
We’ll get you into the Colosseum in the side entrance (you’ll feel super guilty when you see the line that everyone else is standing in, but you’ll also feel smart that you’re not one of them).
Tickets at the Colosseum are a ridiculous hassle to get. We do advance reservations to get our clients in — so when you travel with us you save time buying tickets on their confusing website. Saving that frustration is worth the price of this tour alone.
But let’s not stop there — after you visit the Colosseum with an expert — a fun Italian multilingual guide — you’ll also get to see the Roman Forum.
When you’ve had your fill and are just starting to think — get me away from all these people — we’ll do just that. We’ll escape just outside the main tourist trail to a quiet local neighbourhood (on foot, it’s close, but a world away from the busyness ). We’ll have a coffee break (or pick your poison) and you’ll get to take in the fabulous quiet streets and hidden alleyways of the Real Rome (the kind of Rome you’re actually coming to Rome for, not the Rome you might find if you don’t know where to go).
Because this is Italy, and Italy is full of makers and creators, we’ll cruise by an artisan workshop. This is a fabulous area to find trattorie that locals go — and we’ll point out our faves.
All in all — a fabulous part-day in Rome — with the Colosseum and some Roman history stuff you’ll be smarter already — plus seeing a side of Rome many never see, and walking through some backstreets with someone born in this city. We have a fabulous day planned for you!
