Reviews for Rome In 2 Days Colosseum, Vatican And Appian Way Catacombs Tours
Exclusive Small-Group Guided Tour of Ancient Rome
We had a delightful experience during our two-day small-group guided tour of Rome, covering iconic sites such as the Colosseum, Vatican Museum, and Sistine Chapel. Much credit goes to our exceptionally knowledgeable live English-speaking tour guide, Massimo Lacobelli, who provided us with priority access to the ancient monuments of the Eternal City through skip-the-line tickets. Our exploration extended to St. Peter’s Basilica, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum, and the Underground Catacombs of Saint Callixtus along the Ancient Appian Way. We wholeheartedly recommend this trip for anyone seeking a comprehensive and enriching journey through the historical wonders of Rome.
We enjoyed the 2 day trip around Rome very easy to deal with the tour guides that took us around were very good with all the details and we're very knowledgeable
We'd Love to do it Again
The description didn't mention the limo transfers. We had an awesome time. Our limo drivers were awesome and so accommodating. We really lucked out when we ended up with Francesco for our two private tours; the Colosseum, forum and Vatican Museum. Francesco is a Historian specializing ancient Rome but no matter the topic we couldn't stump him.
