If you like history, you won't want to miss this tour. Exploring the Palatine Hill and the palace of Augustus offers a deep dive into the origins and architectural foundations of Rome. We had a private guide, Vito, who was absolutely superb. We had lots of questions and he took the time to answer them all. If you plan to visit the Colosseum and the ruins of the Roman Forum, you will understand and appreciate what you see if you do the Palatine first.

Our guide Vito was fabulous
Very interesting and knowledgeable able to answer our questions
Private tours of both the houses of Augustus's and livia were absolutely worth the whole cost of the tour
Could not fault Vito or this tour,
The pace was great and Vito kept us going for an extra hour at no extra costs, it just flowed
Would highly recommend

Fantastic! Excellent tour guide, Vito Naddeo, took his time explaining and was full of knowledge. Got to see house of Augustus and Livia with only 5 more persons.

This tour was the best experiences during our time in Rome.
We were a party of 4 and Vito, our guide, was fantastic. He made Ancient Rome come alive with his knowledge, ability to share it and excellent sense of humor, without you having to be an Historian yourself. The Domus Augustana and the house of Livia are amazing. Already bought a book on Ancient Roman History since returning home. Thank you Vito.
Can not recommend this tour highly enough.

This was among the best experiences during our time in Rome. Our guide Vito was absolutely amazing nice, polite, fluent in English let's face it, not all Italians are and last but by no means the least extremely knowledgeable, and eager to share this knowledge. The only thing I regret is that he left in such a hurry that he missed the little tip we had set aside for him. :-
I strongly recommend this tour and Vito as a guide. He made the Palatine of the age of the Empire come alive in a sense, and for a history geek it is somewhat grand to walk in the domus of Augustus himself.

Amazing. Perfect private tour. Vito is a superb guide. Worth every Euro.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant, and he was also really generous with his time - our tour was nearly 5 hours! We learned a lot more about the Palatine Hill, for instance the Houses of Augustus and Livia are really something special. Highly recommended!
