Kristin's Blog: Rome (Day One continued):
We headed back to the hotel and then met with our guides for our tour of the Coliseum. We took a private bus there. Thank goodness we had a private guide with special access, because the general public lines were extremely long. One of the best "perks" with Adventures by Disney® is that you literally bypass the lines. Our guides introduced us to Christina, who was our local guide for our time in Rome. Christina escorted us into the Coliseum and gave us all of her insight. As we toured the outside of the Coliseum we walked around to a special entrance just for our group. Tour groups typically do not get to go down inside the Coliseum. With Adventures by Disney® we got to head inside and right down. It was an amazing experience! Then we boarded our bus and headed back to the hotel for our welcome dinner buffet. Our buffet had great food with many local samplings, including fresh salad, tomatoes, mozzarella salad, as well as fresh handmade pasta. There was also unlimited beer, wine and my favorite prosecco (by the way, it is way better in Italy than in America.)
Before turning in for the evening, Korey and Alexa gave us the rundown for the next day. They told us breakfast would be at 7am, and we needed to be in the lobby by 8am. We also were given a special exclusive Adventures by Disney® pin (these pins can't be bought). I almost forgot -- upon entering our hotel room this evening, the room was turned down with rose petals on our bed and floor, and we were given slippers by our bedside. So romantic!
Tink's Tip: The Guides are so wonderful and know everything!
