Spend one day in the Ancient Rome with an Archaeologist


This fullday tour is suggested if you're really interested in History and the remains of the Ancient Rome, with Marisa qualified tourist guide and specialist in Roman Archaeology.
A day featuring the classic tour of the Roman Forum and the Colosseum + a less famous site: we can visit the Baths of Caracalla or the excavations of the Basilica of St. Clemente (Underground Rome).

Feel free to ask my suggestions and check the photo gallery to discover more details.
The day will be a long journey in the Roman History with a passionate guide who've spent years studying and digging out the Ancient Rome.

TIPS for a perfect visit:
- Only small backpacks or handbags allowed in the Colosseum
- Wear comfortably shoes

IMPORTANT:
--> We'll visit the Colosseum at 8. 30 am or 3 pm to minimize the queue at the entrance (it's a security checkpoint, you must wait in line even if I book tickets ahead of time)
--> The Basilica of St. Clemente is closed between 12. 30 and 3 pm

A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed 3 full days of guided tours with Marisa and I can't image attempting to see Rome in any other way. There is so much to see here, without Marisa we would have been lost and frustrated. She has an enormous amount of historical knowledge, but even more importantly, knows how to be an effective communicator. Thanks Marisa!
