Our walking tour covered so many sites and so much history! Our guide was very knowledgeable and did a good job communicating the high points. She brought a picture book that was very helpful in recreating the grandeur of the Forum for us. We covered a lot of ground, so good shoes are a must! This tour is more of an overview of top sites in ancient Rome, which was exactly what we wanted for the short time we had in Rome. If you want to get an in-depth look at the Colosseum, for instance, this would not be the tour for you.
We chose the early morning tour, and were very glad to have missed the crowds. It was a small group, which was very nice. Our guide, Chiara, was engaging and knowledgeable. She is obviously passionate about art and knows the Vatican very well. We appreciated her insights. Clearly there is so much to see, and a 3 hour tour can't possibly cover everything, but we got to see many of the highlights and having a guide added a richness to the experience that we wouldn't have gotten on our own.
