Francesca was an amazing tour guide! She was very thorough and great with our two teenagers! She met us on site and explained a lot of detail which made it easy to understand. We are glad we arrived at 8:30 am as it does get crowded - and that can make for an uncomfortable wait - especially in the hot summer months. Dress cool and comfortable and enjoy ancient Rome!

Francesca was absolutely wonderful! We met outside of the colosseum. She came with books and pictures that really helped us visualize what the colosseum and Roman Forum were like in the early days of Rome. She pointed out many interesting sights that we would have walked right by. Francesca was an archaeologist who actually worked on the site of the Roman Forum. My husband and I had a great morning with her. She is knowledgeable and very nice! We would highly recommend Francesca!!!!

This tour was the second part of our tour with Francesca. Again fantastic. It was a long day for our young son but she was great with him. Highly recommend her for any tour she offers.

Francesca gave me a wonderful and informative tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, teaching me many things I did not know. Her folder of images helped me to understand what the sites must have looked like in ancient times and she helped me to understand the history of these ancient times, then what has happened since - especially the Colosseum. Her tour was inexpensive compared to others and well worth it. I can thoroughly recommend Francesca for an educational visit to the Colosseum and Roman Forum

We spend a wonderful but rainy afternoon with Francesca, touring the Colosseum, Forum and Basilica San Clemente. Francesca is great! She is very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the ruins. She had a book with photos to show us depictions of how the various locations would have looked centuries ago, which was very helpful. She even arranged for the sun to come out at sunset when we were by the Colosseum :)!! And there was a rainbow too, a great end to a busy and interesting tour.

We had a fabulous 3 hours with Francesca, she had amazing knowledge and great passion ! She made the kids get involved in the tour and and skilfully navigated the horrible large groups that plague the area. She let us dictate the pace and still made sure we saw everything and then some. You will be lucky if you can have Francesca show you around, Gracie Francesca !!!

We had Francesca meet us in Rome at a very busy Colosseum! A very warm greeting for the four of us and all was on time. Francesca's knowledge, enthusiasm, care and attention was impeccable. Her of depth knowledge of all the places we wanted to visit made our tour and visit, one to remember. We had time for a typical Italian lunch at a great little restaurant for a well earned rest. We would highly recommend Francesca.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful 5 stars review and for your kind words! Grazie!

Our guide, Francesca, was excellent. As an archaeologist, her depth of knowledge of the Colosseum and Forum was so insightful. She did not just point out the structures and layout but gave wonderful backstories on each place we stopped giving a glimpse of the lives that unfolded in all these historic sites. Francesca was wonderful in making sure we had a sense of how each site evolved - where original structures were and how they might have looked centuries ago. Her approach was very warm and personable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks John for your great review! Thank you for understanding how much work and passion there is behind a tour. I hope to see your lovely family again soon! Arrivederci!
