One of our tours, the number 2, is dedicated to classical Rome and includes a visit to the Colosseum. The great excavations carried on in this colossal building in the years 1874 and 1875, have thrown an entirely new light on its history. These were made under the level of the ground, at the foot of the podium, which is the same as that of the original arena; this large level space had been indifferently called the ground, the floor, the stage, the area, or the arena; no one had any idea that the original pavement would be found 21 ft. below that level, and that the intervening space was filled with walls and passages, dens for wild beasts, places for lifts to send up men, and dogs, and animals: and canals for water, and several other contrivances for the use of the performers on the stage above, for practically the arena was the stage on which the performances took place. These excavations have enabled us to ascertain that this had been a boarded floor covered with sand, or arena (whence its name), and that this floor could be moved and replaced in a short time, at the word of the Emperor. The evidence of this is brought out clearly in the present work. Large corbels, or brackets, are provided for placing the boards upon when removed, and keeping them out of sight of the people in the galleries; they project from the wall below the podium, in the passage over the dens.We had all of us hitherto been taught that this enormous structure had been all built in ten years by the Flavian emperors ; this is the uniform modern history, but no ancient author says so. It is only one of the so-called “Roman Traditions”, which (as I am obliged to repeat continually) are nothing but the conjectures of learned men during the last three centuries, especially Panvinius and his school in the seventeenth.

From: The Flavian amphitheatre, commonly called the Colosseum at Rome: its history & substructures compared with other amphitheatres, John Henry Parker, 1876.

  3. Mauricio you are the most amazing tour guide I have found. I appreciate you going the extra mile and all the help with my business tours. Including getting us a reservation and a birthday cake at your friends restaurant, waiting for my tour participants who missed a flight connection, and taking care of all of my tour groups airport transfers as well as city tours every time we come. You are charismatic and ethical and just downright awesome! Thanks!

    Thank you Mauricio for the wonderful service you provided our group on May 11 and 23, 2011. You were courteous, knowledgeable, and accommodating with us. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the castle, the winery, and the excellent local pizzeria you brought us to on May 23/11 before getting us to the airport. We will definitely use your services again when we return to Rome in the future!
    Grazie!

  10. Thank you Mauricio for a very enjoyable eight hours of seeing all the highlights of Rome during our Carnival Magic cruise. Your assistance in prebooking the tours of the Colosseum and Vitican was very helpful. Your knowledge of the various sights was very informative and we shall always remember this experience. The fact that your tour took us so close to the historic sights in Rome made it easy for us to see as many places as posssible. Your gift was really appreciated.

  11. Cruise from Civitavecchia (Roma) may 07 2011. We highly recommend Carratoni Tours for your next vacation in Italy. Their service is wonderful and they try to make the best they can for you to enjoy beautiful Italy at the most. Mauricio is a great man with lots of knowledge that always shares with you. He is very professional, kind and always accommodates to your requests.

    Thank-you for the fantastic tour of Rome! Mauricio took us everywhere we asked and was very knowledgable! A perfect way to see Rome, especially with the air conditioned car! I would recommend this to anybody as you can do your tour of Rome the way you would like, which our driver provided excellently! A ‘gift’ of wine & cold bottled water also went down very well!
    Thank-You again Mauricio, The Brend Family:

  17. Hello Mauricio, I just want to thank you and your company for the wonderful 2 tours we did in Livorno (Cinque Terre and Pisa) on August 28th and Naples (Sorrentos, Positano, Pompei, etc.) on August 30th . The 2 drivers were very reliable, well-informed and spoke excellent English. They were also concerned about our comfort and safety throughout the tour.

  19. Our sincere thanks to Mauricio who made our one day stop in Rome most enjoyable. He picked us up at cruise pier and drove into Rome and took us to all the major sites. He is very knowledgable and very pleasant. Even gave us a souvenir bottle of wine which we have enjoyed. Would recommend 100% to anyone who wants a condensed tour of Rome. Will definitely use again on our return trip next year.

  20. An Absolutely fantastic day Mauricio, from Pick up to Oatia Antica, to Lunch, to wine tasting, to the beach.
    would recommend your first class service to anyone visiting Rome !

  21. Wow! Just can’t stop saying what a great job and guy, Freddy did/is. I mean this guy took us places no one have even spoke about. This was the best tour of Rome we had. Tried two other tour companies, but there is just no competing with Fred. Great tour. If you want this kind of tour, contact Carrotoni Tours… and ask for Freddy, he is the best.

  22. Mauricio was great when he took us on a tour of Tivoli recently. We had 9 hrs between cruise disembarkation and evening flight out of FCO. Mauricio was courteous and prompt in picking us up from Civitavecchia and driving to Tivoli. Hadrian Villa was quite a sight for its ancient structures and Ville D’Este was just amazing. We spent a total of 5 hours between the two gardens, and that’s barely enough! Many thanks to Mauricio for a wonderful day!

  23. Mauricio Carratoni was absolutely fantastic for the week we used his services. He accommodated our group of seven (one in a manual wheelchair) with no problems. He was very friendly, reliable, knowledgeable, helpful, and personable. His English was great. We could not have navigated Rome, seen as much as we did, or understand as much about the city and its history without him. I strongly recommend Mauricio and commend him for making our trip to Rome so very enjoyable.

  27. My husband and I were recently trsveling with 3 elderly aunts.
    We spent a full day in Rome with Mauricio. He was able to get us close to all the major sites. And with his expertise, we were able to do everything we wanted to do, and then some.
    Mauricio was very friendly and clearly loves his job, we had so much fun!
    We will definately look him up next time we are in Rome.:

We cannot say enough positive things about him! If you are going to Rome, this is the guide you need!

  34. We couldn’t have done both Orvieto and Assisi from Rome without the excellent service from Mauricio Carratoni!! He has a detailed, local’s knowledge of Rome and other northern regions of Rome. Without his expertise we would never have been able to enjoy so many things on a schedule and with an ease so perfect for our group Of grandparents and a 7-year -old. Very safe and clean Mercedes Benz mIni-van!!
    Grazie lille Mauricio!!
