Walk up to Palatine Hill and take in breathtaking views of the ruins from the top. Upon entering Palatine Hill, you'll see the House of Augustus and witness a vast collection of frescoes that would give you a deeper insight into Ancient Rome and its rulers.

Knowledge and passion! Throughout our tour of the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum, Mircea showed us ancient Roman history from multiple perspectives. We learned about the evolution of Rome, religion, social classes, and technology/construction. Great for kids and adults. We highly recommend that you book Mircea for a tour when you visit Rome!

Mitch our tour guide was amazing, very informative with a sense of humor which helped make the tour fun. We went with our kids-10 & 6 years old, he managed to keep them engaged and enjoying the trip. He even gave them gifts ( miniature soldier toy). Can’t recommend him more for families or anyone who is looking for the best tour guide.

Excellent tour with Mircha - really worth the time and money. Can absolutely recommend, no matter whether you just love a good story against the backdrop of ancient Rome or want to get into the depths of history. We booked the tour for the family, 2 adults and 2 children (13 and 9 years old) and the best part about the tour was that it was a great experience for everyone. Mircha's storytelling and contextualization was fantastic, both for the more history-nerdy parents but also catered well to our youngest, who was more interested in the gladiators, wild animals and Cesar's encounter with the pirates than different emperor dynasties or Cicero's relationships with Cesar and Octavian. Thumbs up and any time again.
