Marco picked us up at our hotel (be on time he does not like lateness) and immediately took us to the Pantheon, where we were literally one of two other couples, so we had the place to ourselves, which was nice. After that we went to the Vatican tour... the lines to get in, even early in the morning, were incredible, but with Marco we got in immediately. This is nothing to do with Marco, but we were basically herded through like cattle. I guess with the number of people coming to see it daily there is no choice but to rush you through, still I would have liked more time to absorb the history. After that we went to the Sabastiano catacombs, which were incredible, I truly enjoyed seeing and hearing all about the history and of course it was more relaxing than the Vatican.
Later we went for a leisurely lunch in an out of the way place with seating located outside under beautiful trees. After that we were off to the Colosseum where Marco left us, as he did not go into the sites, but rather stays on the peripheral while you do the tour, since most of the places have inside guides.
Unfortunately, we left our tickets in the car and by the time we realized it Marco was gone so we did not go into the Colosseum (I did not want to pay for two more tickets).
All and all Marco is incredibly knowledgeable and if you really want to see the main attractions without waiting on those lines (one line can blow half your day) it is worth the money to book a tour. Warning: it is not cheap.
