If you're traveling with children under the age of 12, we highly recommend our family-oriented Ancient Rome Discovery, which concentrates primarily on the Colosseum (though it's possible to add the Roman Forum or Palatine Hill). Or, to continue your immersion in the Roman Empire, our Caesar and Empire tour is a perfect complement to Roma Antica, picking up the storyline at the assassination of Julius Caesar. Interested in viewing other historic sites in Rome? See our Caesar and Empire Tour or our Underground Rome Tour.

She is the author of a book, published by the Accademia dei Lincei, on the antiquities collection of Pope Julius II and has written various articles in important scholarly journals on the history of Renaissance and Baroque collections. More recently, she had published a book on some of the most famous paintings of Caravaggio in Rome which introduces a new interpretation of the works, based on philological data, and which is changing the way we look at this artist.
