Review: I have seen quite a few of these virtual tours and educational experiences based around the Roman Colosseum in Italy, but this really was one of the better ones. With full narration and guide points shown by beams of light, this is a tour filled with information that lasts about 25 minutes. Within that time you will get a few different choices like staying on the ground, or going up in the air to view the Colosseum. The narrator’s voice is nice and clear, plus the information is presented in a guided tour style making it easy to follow along with. Given that this is free is shocking because it is far better than other virtual tours of the Colosseum, which cost a fair penny. If you have an interest in this sort of thing, do give it a go because despite it being a big download, it was well worth the wait.
