In Rome, for which sites should we have guided tours?

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Italy, including 4 days in Rome, in the hot, second half of August. We are three adult women, traveling with almost-grown "children" ages 15 and 20. At a bare minimum, we hope to see the Vatican, the Colosseum and Forum, and the Catacombs.

Although we assume that it makes sense to book a guided tour for the Vatican, how necessary is it to have a guided tour for the other locations? I'm particularly curious about the Colosseum, and wonder if people who have seen it with vs without a guide had a very different experience.

Of course, recommendations re specific guided tour agencies are always welcome (and available on this and other travel review websites) but I'm principally looking for help with making a decision about booking a guided tour at all for any location other than the Vatican.
