We went here on a guided tour with LivItaly Tours. Our tour guide GIULLIA was very nice knowledgeable and explained in a way that is understood easily also by kids. We paid the tour with 3D glasses that let us visualize how the colosseum and the other ruins looked like before.

Many thanks for your nice review and high rating of the Colosseum VR tour with Giulia. Giulia's background is archaeology so she's a fabulous guide for all things ancient Rome. She also knows how to share her knowledge in a fun and entertaining manner and it's great to hear that your kids were enthralled with what they were seeing. We couldn't ask for more! Thank you for sharing Angelo and Kristin

Andrea did such a great job with this tour. He is very knowledgeable and knows how to lead you through the area - didn't even need to use those annoying headsets. What a fantastic way to see the Colosseum and all the ancient sites surrounding it.

We came to Rome a day early, before we started a 12-day tour of the country, primarily because that tour was not going to cover these locations. We went back-and-forth on whether or not to pay a bit more for this semi-private tour. We're so glad we did! We ended up with only one
