Our tour guide was great and gave us time for photos and to look around. But my family and I did feel that the group size is too large for a tour like that. At times it was hard to keep up in the large crowds!

The tour was awesome and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Here is a problem though. I have a hearing disability. Even with the headset we are given, it was very difficult to hear the guide as she spoke throughout the tour. There was no way to adjust or amplify the sound from the headsets. The headsets should come with individual volume controls for each persons requirements.

A day in the life, gladiator-style

Walk past the crowds smoothly with your guide into the mighty Colosseum, ready to see and learn everything. The depth of its history embedded in the many-tiered structure is as vast as the monument itself. Watch out for goosebumps as you walk through the Gladiator Gate. Enter the Arena, which once hosted epic historical battles, and don't forget to greet the Arch of Constantine.

View the senator seats up close, from where the royalty entertained themselves to bloodthirsty quarrels. Peek down from the edge of the Arena's floor to discover chambers that once contained wild beasts and pathways the gladiators took. Walk through the entire circumference of the Colosseum, and try to picture it when 80,000 screaming Romans occupied it.

The Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Step away from the glory of the Colosseum to the Roman Forum, to discover the center of political and social life in Ancient Rome. Visit a vantage point with equally enriching views and history. Learn about it from your guide and take some time to explore it on your own. Next up, trek to the top of Palatine Hill for unparalleled views of the Forum and Circus Maximus.
