Great tour and fabulous tour guide
Nov 2021
We had a fabulous semi-private tour with Davide F. He was also our tour guide earlier in the week for a Vatican tour, and we were thrilled he was our guide again for the Colosseum tour. He was very knowledgeable and made it very fun! He has a great sense of humor and the fact that he loves his job shines through. I am just waiting for him to write a book about all he knows! lol Thanks Davide for two great tours. I would highly recommend him.

Excellent experience with Giulia P
Giulia P was a very lovely tour guide, extremely knowledgeable, passionate and fun to be around. Our tour of the underground and upper parts of colosseum as well as the Roman forum was packed absolutely full of information we would not have known without her. Excellent experience, highly recommend. If possible request Giulia P, she was awesome

Don't miss the sites of Rome with Davide
Dec 2021
Don't miss this tour with Davide Beckham Falasca! We actually spent the whole day with him, first to the Vatican and Sistine chapel and then some highlights, including the Trevi fountain, Pantheon and Spanish steps and then to the Colosseum. It was raining and the underground part of our tour was in danger of being closed. In spite of all the bad weather we were able to see all the things we wanted to see. Davide was excellent and very knowledgable about everything. He was fun and made everything really interesting. We ended up having the whole colosseum virtually to ourselves, which made for great photo opportunities. Davide made great choices of things to show us and things to tell us. Couldn't have asked for a better tour or tour guide! Would highly recommend, worth every penny we paid!!

Amazing tour of the colosseum and forum
Our guide, Luca P, was entertaining, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable! It was a joy to spend 3+ hours with him. The group was small, 7 people, the access and organization was superb.

A big highlight of our 3-weeks in Italy
Our guide, Guilia P. was incredibly knowledgeable and we learned so much more than we expected. We loved the small group and opportunities to ask questions and also stop to take photos. We saw so much in those three hours, and way more than we could have done on our own. Highly recommended!

Wonderful experience
Nov 2021
Had a fantastic time with Chiara, who was very knowledgeable and shared so many interesting facts about the sights & Italy/Rome in general. Was going back and forth between booking this or doing an audio tour and am glad our party of two went with the tour. Chiara was kind, friendly, and professional, and I'm glad she was our tour guide. Would highly recommend this tour group & Chiara for anyone looking to explore the Colosseum & ancient Rome tour.

for a history major....the thrill of a lifetime!!!!
Nov 2021
We made the decision to book a tour to see the colosseum and what a good decision it was. I booked in through Angelo (the owner) and got set for a Friday afternoon tour. We met outside the Coloseeo Metro Station with our tour guide Alessandro. From there it was smooth sailing. I had been to the colosseum 43 years earlier while at university and back them all you got to see was the upper level of the colosseum itself. No Roman Forum or Palatine Hill which was closed to the public. This time around my wife (her first trip to Rome) and I booked a semi-private tour to see the entire colosseum from the underground to the top level as well as the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

Alessandro was incredible and made the tour come alive. He was engaging and funny and he loves his city which makes it even more exciting. We were even luckier that particular day because it had been pouring rain all day and when we finally went on the tour the rain had stopped and we were one of the only groups to get down into the underground section of the stadium. What a thrill!!!!

I did feel a little guilty because I was glued to him trying to soak up all of the historical information and the characters involved in the building. We definitely connected personality wise. It was a thrill of a lifetime for me and my wife. 2000 years of incredible history just sitting in front of you and for all the world to see and admire. Thank you Angelo for helping me book the tour and thank Alessandro for being an incredible guide.

Some may say who needs a tour guide. Trust me...you need a really good tour guide because otherwise you miss so much and miss out on the full history of the place.

I cannot say enough good things about the LivItaly group. They true professionals and deliver in a big way!!!

Great way to see the Colosseum
Nov 2021
We usually do most of our tours on our own when traveling, but between various restrictions and such, we decided it may be best to do a small organized tour. We found this LivTour on Viator, and we are glad we did! Annalisa was a fabulous guide who really enjoyed sharing information with us throughout our tour. She had a lot of knowledge about the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. The tour itself is fairly fast-paced, so be aware that at times you may need to walk at a pretty quick pace -- but you will be seeing great things as you go! While it would be very easy to spend twice the amount of time looking at these wonderful historic locations, the amount of time provided does let you see them to a good extent. If you are looking for a great tour of these locations while in Rome, definitely look at booking this tour. The additional expense for the small tour was well worth it! When I looked at the other tours of 30-50 people, I was so happy we opted to go with this specific tour.

Very enjoyable and educational tour!
Excellent experience! Our guide Pamen was absolutely wonderful. She was so knowledgeable and passionate in telling us all about the Coliseum, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. I had visited these sites once before without a guide, but I'm so glad we made a different decision this time because we learned so much from Pamen. I would definitely recommend this tour and Pamen specifically!

A personalised way to explore Ancient Rome
Nov 2021 • Couples
Ute was a hugely knowledgeable guide who managed the weather and time restrictions magnificently. We had the opportunity to see parts of the Colosseum we would never have explored alone, and breathtaking views from the Palatine Hill - even in the pouring rain! She helped us to navigate the ‘lasagne’ of Rome’s architecture and history and we will definitely be returning to explore some areas in more detail at a later date.
