"We booked a private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum and could not be more happy with our experience! Our guide met us in the lobby of our hotel so the tour started in the cab on the ride to the Colosseum. Barbara was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She gave us a wonderful overview of the sites and history while also pointing out small significant details in the architecture that we would have certainly missed on our own. She even had holographic cards that showed paintings/reconstructions of different areas so from particular vantage points we could look out at the ruins and then compare what exists today with what used to be. My husband and I highly recommend Italian Vista Travel and will definitely use their services again. Grazie mille!" Jessica B.
