Laura was our fantastic guide to the Colosseum and all the landmarks of Ancient Rome. Our group was small, only 6 people so it was very easy to ask questions. Laura was so knowledgeable and found places for us to visit that were very special and off the beaten path. This is a very doable walking tour and one we will always remember.
