We had an amazing time with Mara as our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and made sure we were as comfortable as possible in the sweltering July heat-making sure we had enough shade and water. Mara (a native Roman) was very insightful when talking about the ruins as well as the Coloseo. The sights themselves were amazing, also being able to access the Coloseo floor was such a privilege. The limit to only 6 people made the tour more intimate and personal. I would highly recommend Mara and this tour!
