Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We did the afternoon Colosseum tour that started at 3 pm. Starting point was a bit hard to find, need to go inside the metro station and up the escalator to get to the area ABOVE the metro station to meet the guide. Our guide was very well informed, but his style was to walk a short ways, then stop and tell history stories for 20 minutes or more. While informative and somewhat entertaining, there was way too much standing in one place rather than walking. I find standing in one place too long very tiring, so we actually left the tour early I'm sorry to say.

My Review

We did this tour on the day before Easter. Tour guide and overall experience was excellent. The tour includes a significant amount of walking and stairs, but there is so much to see. Guide was very informative. Would highly recommend.

My Review

This tour is generally well planned out, and our guide Antonella was quite good. Couple of slight negatives: the stops at Assisi and Siena are very quick (say 2 hours or so), same with Montepulciano on the last day, so they are more like photo ops with limited time to explore. Breakfasts were very good, dinners were marginal so we ended up eating dinners off property for the most part. We upgraded our room in Venice which I would recommend as you are right in the heart of the city, although our group was moved to an alternative hotel on the canal that was not as nice as the one advertised. If you want to visit the museums in Florence it is a major time saver to book advanced reservations on-line as waits can be several hours otherwise.
