About the tour

Follow me on this fascinating tour of Ancient Rome where we will explore the stories, intrigues, victories and defeats of the Roman Emperors. We will do so by visiting the places they forged to exalt and celebrate their exploits, conquests and immense power.

- We will start with the monument symbol of the city: the Colosseum (outside).

- We will then move to the Ludus Magnus, the place where the gladiators trained before clashing on the arena of the Flavian Amphitheatre.

- Via dei Fori Imperiali where it is still possible to admire the remains of the imposing public and religious areas created by the Emperors and then reach Piazza Venezia.

- The tour will end at the top of one of the famous seven hills, the Campidoglio, where you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the Roman Forum, the oldest of the Forums and the true cradle of Ancient Rome's civilization.

We were there 7 minutes earlier, but nobody showed up. We waited around 30 minutes, but nobody showed up. We walked around the google map's coordinates she sent us and asked to other 2 tour guides there. No sign of MariaGrazia. We did not not receive any message from her either. We were very unhappy and went away.

Response from MariaGrazia:

I actually sent you two messages and I didn't receive any reply from you. The other clients who booked the tour strangely find me, I was there, at the exit of the metro line Colosseo 15 minutes before and we waited for you for 15 minutes after the 2.30pm. You should better check the messages I sent you.
