Fabulous guide, very informative, wish the tour would be longer.
Wonderful experience! I think Colosseum is one of the best holiday destinations i ever visit. We bought this underground colosseum tour and really make me feel very close to the Roman history. Our guide was Julia, who make this tour wonderful.
So happy I booked my tickets ahead of time. Rather than waiting in a line that may have lasted hours, I only had to wait around 20min!
I recommend you to buy fast access tickets and enjoy the amazing view.
I am so happy I booked the tour to the Colosseum. Visiting the first and second ring was such a cool experience, especially because we had a guide with us. We really enjoyed and will be back.
Fast track entrance, a tour of the complex, visit to the Belvedere and access to the gladiator's quarters, were all included in my ticket. I not only felt like a VIP throughout my afternoon, but I didn't need to pay for VIP costs. The price was super reasonable.
What is the Pantheon? Perhaps you have never heard of it, after all, it’s very, very old. In fact, the Pantheon is a former temple, today a church, which has been standing strong for almost 2000 years. It’s one of the most significant buildings in the Western culture. I bet you can’t wait to do the Pantheon tour! However, hearing this generous description, one would think that Pantheon, Rome, tickets would be unaffordable and the queues in front of it endless. If this is what you are thinking you are wrong. Pantheon entrance fee is nonexistent. Isn’t that great? Obviously, free entry makes visiting the Pantheon much easier. But who built the Pantheon, this imposing feat of architecture?
We can thank emperor Hadrian who constructed the monument over the earlier temple of Marcus Agrippa from 27 BC. When was the Pantheon built, you ask? Well, it has been standing proudly since 125 AC. Although its graying color betrays its respectable age, passing through its vast bronze gate is an exhilarating experience. After all, inside, you will be gazing up at the grandest unreinforced concrete dome in the world. That is the real fascination with the Pantheon! In fact, it’s by far the greatest architectural achievement of the ancient Rome.
Probably the next question you want to answer is: Where is the Pantheon? We have another piece of great news! The temple stands in the heart of the Eternal City, on a piazza circled by narrow lanes. Piazza Della Rotonda is a square full of life, cafes, bars, restaurants, and, often, live street performances! After your tour of the Pantheon, you can enjoy a fresh Italian gelato, a cup of coffee, or, simply, sit in the sun and people-watch. So, besides the architecture and history, you can also indulge the modern vibe that pulsates through the city.
Though you don’t need to purchase Pantheon tickets, there is an option to grab an informative Pantheon audio guide for just a couple of Euros. It’s handy and convenient but if you are after a high-quality experience, go for a guided Pantheon tour. The passionate narration of the guide will bring the temple’s story back to life. Better yet, Pantheon tours are often included as part of a general walking tour of Rome city center!
