Tour Escort & Local Guide: We customized this tour using a Tour-Escort. You have to enter inside the monuments alone. The Tour-Escort is able to provide basic tourist information only and he is not a licensed local guide and because of it he cannot escort you inside the sites because this is not allowed by Italian Rules.


Admission fee: The price of this tour does not include the Admission Fees, which are usually around Euros 8,00 per person payable directly on the spot. If you are over 65 or under 18 years old and you have EU or Commonwealth Passport,  the admission fees are free of charge for you showing your document (or copy of your document) on the spot.


IMPORTANT: In order to guarantee all departures with a minimum of 2 clients, we operate this tour either with a Driver-Escort or Tour Escort and driver.  We do not use Licensed Local Guides for this tour.  Tour-Escort (or Tour Director) provide basic historical and site information preparing you to visit sites on your own.  They may not accompany you on your visit of the sites.

If you require licensed Local Guides, it is your responsibility to purchase on the spot (if available). 

We cannot arrange Licensed Local Guide services for you in advance.
