      Hidden gem
      Tamara_C, Sept 2023
      Not much to see at Circus Maximus although our guide gave excellent commentary about what took place there. A short walk brought us to the Baths ruins which were amazing! Never even knew they were there. We received a good explanation of their importance in society at the time and how they brought the classes together. It was very relaxing to be somewhere so beautiful that wasn’t crowded at all. Highly recommend.

      The guide explained us everything about this place. She was very kind and nice. There were two more people but they didn’t go, and the guide Anna followed us in Circus Máximo and Caracalas Bath.
      Showers in the baths!!
      Leslie_B, Aug 2023
      Having seen the baths in England this was a disappointment. The history about Circus Maximus was interesting. There were only 6 people in the tour so I'm not sure how invested Francesca was. The intermittent downpours of rain made it the most memorable.
      Response from Host, Aug 2023
      Dear Leslie, Thank you for reviewing this experience. We would appreciate if you could find the time to write to us at to let us know what we can improve about this tour and to let us know more about your experience with Francesca. Looking forward to receive your feedback, Ermal
      Informative Guide
      Douglas_V, July 2023
      The guide was very well informed and was quite engaging. It was unfortunate that at Circus Maximus there was so much traffic. She was hard to hear.
      Fantastic and Enlightening
      Robert_T, July 2023
      Alessia was our guide and provided an informative and relaxing experience which we highly recommend.
      Must see!
      Amy_O, June 2023
      The park was amazing! Not crowded and you could walk around in a city that was from 600BC. The pottery on display in the museum also rivaled what we say elsewhere and all the Greek pots were found at the sight! The tour guide did an excellent job explaining the city and how it moved from a Greek city to a Roman city. The drive to the park along the coast was very beautiful and we were able to stop along the way at a few towns to shop/snack/ tour as we went.
      Rarely Visited Gem
      Kyle_S, June 2023
      This is probably one of the most overlooked sites in all of Rome. This was one of the few ruins that has enough left to really give you the scale of what this building must have looked like. And having someone there to point stuff out and explain was super helpful. So much more info available than just what is on the plaques.
      Amazing site, even better tour guide
      Andrew_L, June 2023
      We had Sonia as our tour guide and she was phenomenal. As an archaeologist, she had an abundance of knowledge, and her enthusiasm really showed. We absolutely loved how she was able to paint the picture of how the old structure used to look, and where certain ruin pieces would have been. Her own personal knowledge from working in the field meant that she could speak of the newest findings or what the significance of the different stones in the mosaic are, or the colors. Absolutely recommend!!
      Great tour with Samuele
      Simon_R, June 2023
      Samuele was our guide and did an excellent job telling us the histories of the Ancient Roman sports arena and chariot races as well as that of the Caracalla baths. It was a super informative 90 minute tour. Highly recommend.
      Excellent experience.
      Belinda_S, May 2023
      Francesca our tour guide was excellent. She explained the history of the place but also helped us understand how life in Ancient Rome compared to our lives today!
      Basically all about the baths
      Paul_C, May 2023
      Practically nothing to see or said about Circus Maximus. Baths explanation was good! I would just visit baths on your own and save money.
      Baths closed!!
      Lindy_L, May 2023
      It was not our wonderful guide’s fault that the baths were closed without warning!! Instead of sending us on our way as the company advised him to, he spent an hour explaining the complex with a series of schematic drawings outside.
      Cool less traditional tour!
      Kelsey_S, May 2023
      We did 10-15 tours while in Rome, Pompeii, Pisa, Florence and this was one of my husbands favorites!! He loved our guide who told the history but in such a fun way with a great sense of humor! Super small tour in English just us and another couple. Highly recommend!
      Interesting and informative
      Staci_F, Apr 2023
      Our tour guide was amazing, it was a small group, only 5 of us. Fantastic experience seeing the Baths and learning the history, highly recommend this tour!
      Great tour
      Ellen_C, Nov 2022
      Our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the Baths and circus Maximus and answered any question thoroughly. I would highly recommend this tour!
      Almost a missed opportunity…..
      Kristien_H, May 2022
      The guide was so knowledgeable and truly helped me understand the areas that we were looking at. I would not have explored the Caracalla Baths if it weren’t part of the tour, but this was my favorite part.
      SUSAN_S, May 2022
      Being able to see and learn about how people lived so many years ago. Tour guide was very informative.
      Très bonne expérience
      Sophie_G, June 2023
      La guide était très compétente et sympathique. Les termes de Caracalla sont très impressionants. Nous avons eu une bonne expérience avec ce tour.
      Quelques heures à Caracalla
      Herv_T, Apr 2023
      Un endroit a ne pas manquer à Rome! Excellente guide qui nous a donné l’heure juste sur la vraie l’histoire!
      Alle terme come un antico romano
      Alessandra_B, Mar 2023
      Mario guida super! Con il suo modo di raccontare ti da l’impressione di essere davvero lì, quando le terme erano cuore pulsante della Roma imperiale. E questo senza tralasciare un ottimo inquadramento storico e tutti i necessari riferimenti. Veramente consigliato!
