Make the most out of your precious holiday time. Enjoy the flexibility of touring at your own pace with the convenience of an on-hand driver. Having a car and driver in addition to the guide is beneficial as you cover more sites, see off the beaten path sites that are not accessible on foot, and save energy as you are chauffeured from site to site in the luxury of an air-conditioned vehicle, thereby skipping the long walks.

For safety reasons even with booking reservations, there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the Coliseum.

The Colosseum is subject to occasional last minute closures without notice due to rain, assembly meetings, strikes or other factors. If this happens your guide will modify the itinerary working with the circumstances given. While we regret this inconvenience, the unforeseen closure of the Coliseum is beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore, no refunds will be issued.

When you contact our family vacation consultants let us know as much about your children interests in order to make the experience as interesting as possible for them.

A little advance preparation in learning about Rome will reward you and your family with a very enjoyable visit. To enhance the experience, Nancy Aiello suggests children’s books so that you can prepare for the tour. Kids benefit the most from a historical site if you do a little prep work before your visit.

Do you combine people to share the tour?

All our tours are private, luxurious, and totally customized to suit your desires, which means that you do not share your tour with anyone else – without having to accommodate other people’s interests. Our private tours are exclusive to one booking party and we do not combine separate reservations to form groups.
We specialize in private, tailor-made vacations for individuals, families and friends.

Do we skip the line to enter the Coliseum?

Yes. This tour includes entrance tickets to skip the line. Your tickets will be pre-booked and prepaid for fast hassle-free entry.
Please Note: Recently, due to increased security measures, new screening procedures were put in place for entry to the Colosseum. For safety reasons ALL visitors must pass through security checks and metal detectors, so even with reservations there is still a compulsory security check which may cause some delays in entering the site. Because of the security measures, the line for entry may be quite long during peak seasons and holidays. However, no time will be wasted. Your experienced guide will use this time to provide an overview and contextualization for the tour.

Does your skip the line tour of the Coliseum go to the underground level or the 3rd tier?

The Colosseum does not allow any company to conduct private visits to the Underground areas. The underground and third tier level access of the Colosseum is run exclusively by the Colosseum and only available for those joining group tours. Therefore, the visit of the underground and third ring are NOT included in our private family tours.

Do we stop for lunch on tour?

Yes! In a city with so much great food it would be crazy not to. The duration of the tour includes time for breaks to grab a quick snack and/or lunch but is not included in the price. Some people like to grab a quick pizza or a snack, and some people like to sit down for a relaxing meal. Either is an option, but just know that if we sit down for a relaxing meal we might have to move faster to get in the rest of the sights.

What happens if a site is unexpectedly closed on the day of scheduled tour?

Nancy Aiello Tours is not liable for reduced itineraries owing to unscheduled closures by attractions. Unscheduled closures do not depend on us, but on the administration of the sites visited on the tour. In the event of an unexpected closure of a site or attraction your guide will promptly provide an alternative itinerary. The Coliseum is subject to closure due to assembly meetings, strikes or other factors without prior notice. While we regret these inconveniences, these rare unforeseen closures are beyond our control for which we cannot be held responsible therefore, no refunds will be issued. In these rare cases the Coliseum may make changes that may affect your tour, your guide will modify the itinerary and give you as complete a tour as possible working with the circumstances given and will do everything possible to make appropriate adjustments but if it is impossible to complete a part of the tour we regret that no compensation can be offered.

  • Best of Rome Evening Tour

    Hello Ann,
    I just wanted to tell you how amazing our tour was last night due entirely to our guide and driver. Lucia has such a thorough knowledge of the history of the city and she explains things in a way that we were completely enthralled. I have been on the evening tour before but I feel like I learned even more about the city and history. We can’t thank her enough and my parents are really looking forward to their tour of the Vatican with her on Friday. Also I wanted to say how nice and friendly our driver Lorenzo was. He safely and expertly delivered us from one site to another always making sure we were comfortable and had the best drop off and pickup points.
    Thank you to all for making this trip once again so memorable!
