Getting up on holiday for a tour starting at 07:30 might not be everyone's cup of tea (frankly it's not mine) but this was really worth it. When we arrived on Sunday afternoon we had wandered down to the Trevi fountain (near our hotel) to find it swamped. At 07:40 we were sharing the site with maybe 40 people. Manuela gave us really informed commentary around key sites letting us have a really good overview of a key area of central Rome, and still with much of the day to spare. Strongly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for putting in such nice words the spirit of this early tour. Grazie mille.
Manuela was a delight. She was passionate about every site we visited. She rearranged the order of the tour to accommodate a personal request of ours. A hidden gem of the tour was visiting an aqueduct in the lower level of a shopping center. The early morning start is awesome. We were first into the Pantheon. Easy to toss our coins into Trevi Fountain and she got a photo for us with coins in mid air. We definitely beat the crowds. Manuela is an awesome guide. Highly recommend.
