Hi, I meant to send this right after our amazing trip. Your tour guides were fantastic: Katya for the Vatican, Cinzia for the Colosseum and Maria Elena in Florence. Their English was fantastic and they were are very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and gave personal antidotes during their tours. They were interested in my kids insights as well. I would definitely recommend your company. We were referred to you through our good friend who has used you for several trips. Our experience with you was in direct contrast to a tour that we took in London with another company my husband booked this on the recommendation of his business partner which was horrible. We had wished we had used your organization in London as well. Thank you for making our trip so special.

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

The Colosseum does not allow any company to conduct private visits to the Underground areas.

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.

MORE EXPERIENCES TO INSPIRE YOUR ITALIAN VACATION
I came across Aiello Tours on the Internet while researching Family Oriented Tours of Italy. Ann, who was precise, through and informative, answered my email in a very timely manner. Needless to say I was very impressed. Over the weeks preceding our trip she helped arrange for family tours of Rome, transportation to and from the airport, as well as a heritage tour from our rented Tuscan Villa. All were executed precisely as requested. All the tours were wonderful, informative and professionally done.
I must make special mention of our Tour Guide in Rome. I cannot say enough about her. She had the unique ability to provide an entertaining tour for the children while at the same time provide a wonderful and informative tour into Roman culture and history. My husband and son-in-law were history majors in college and were thoroughly impressed by the insightful of the tour. We all felt that it was one of the best tours we had ever taken. My family of 9 ages 5yr to 65 yrs would highly recommend Aiello Tours. Thanks we could not have done it without you.
We are definitely going to review our tour on trip advisor upon our return home. Our driver was incredibly punctual, professional and helped make our experience amazing including his recommendations for lunch. We were well taken care of and really appreciated the care he took when driving around…made us feel very safe! Our guide in the ruins of Pompeii was incredibly knowledgeable and really provided us insight into what life would have been like. The ruins she showed us were first rate and she moved us through massive crowds expertly so we felt at times we were the only ones on Pompeii. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone including family and friends. Thank you for a most amazing experience! I originally found you by chance on the Internet and it worked out wonderfully for us! Thank you! Please pass on our thanks and praise to your staff who helped us enjoy our day so much!
