Booking this tour via the website is very easy. Only the Meeting point is not quite right. They indicate to be waiting in front of the souvenir shop on Via Tunisi 3 but no one was there. In the same street in a long staircase where all the group tours gather. I went there and then I found it happily. Everything else went smoothly (despite being very busy). The tour is really worth it and you learn a lot. If I had gone to visit it on my own I probably would have been lost! So big and you don't know where to look. A tour is very nice!

Our guide Marco was super! Engaging and exciting even for two kids like mine aged 11 and 13. More than willing to answer questions. It is perceived that he does this job with pleasure and transmits his passion also to those who listen to him. Truly an unforgettable experience. Thanks Marco !

The meeting place and time were contradictory. I got a message with a change in time to one hour later and in fact there was no change, so I missed my slot. We were included in the next group, which was larger than the promised maximum ten. The meeting place was not the bottom of the stairs as stated, but the top of the stairs.
