A Recent Review of this tour

If you have the time, this is a tour you should absolutely try to do. It's a little outside of Rome, but worth the train ride to see the remains of an entire port city that was the gateway to Rome for many years. It has it all, the Forum, the colosseum, residences, baths, temples and even bathrooms. You get a much greater insight into Ancient Rome than from your visits to the sights in Rome. This was the last of our five tours with Francesca and we can only say we will miss her smiling face.
