Our guide Simone was amazing! She was so interesting and had so many interesting facts and information. This is the only way to go for the Colosseum - the public lines were so long - and we just zipped right in. Would definitely recommend a tour. It was very very hot and Simone was such a trouper keeping us moving and finding shady spots for us!
