COLOSSEUM, ROMAN FORUM and PALATINE HILL
ROME!! You’ve watched movies about it, studied it in school, read about it in books, and now you are finally here! An Ancient Rome Guided Tour is tailored to satisfy all your curiosity. You are walking on the coble stones of the Eternal City: the city from where, more than 2000 years ago, the fate of a huge empire was decided by charismatic and unscrupulous emperors! Follow us through more than 12 centuries of ancient Roman history on our Colosseum and Roman Forum and Palatine Hill Tour, from the time of Romulus, Remus and the She-Wolf up to the Barbarian invasions.
What will we see in the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill Tour?
Enter the Colosseum like an ancient spectator, climb the stairs and reach the first tier!
You will be struck by a spectacular view of the arena and your expert, local tour guide will make history come alive again! Imagine gladiators wounded by wild lions and tigers, criminals skinned alive or fed to wild animals during cruel executions. And finally, in the afternoon, bet (not for real!) on the gladiators fighting for their life.
After the the exploration of the Flavian Amphiteatre, leave the stadium walk to the Arch of Constantine, in 5 minutes you will arrive at the beating heart of the ancient world: the Roman Forum.
During your Colosseum and Roman Forum Tour with the help of our licensed guides you will easily imagine sellers trading goods, politicians speaking to the crowd, judges sentencing criminals, teachers surrounded by their students. Don’t forget the priests worshipping pagan gods or predicting the future, as well as pickpockets running away with someone’s bag, or hundreds of nude slaves in line, ready to be purchased.
Be inspired by the beauty of the most important ruins of antiquity on the Colosseum and Roman Forum Tour: the Temple of Saturn, the Tabularium façade, the ancient Senate house, the Temple of Julius Cesar, the house of the Vestal Virgins and their Holy Fire. Walk through the “Via Sacra”, the holiest road in Rome, to reach the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine and the Arch of Titus, with its picture of the glorious Jewish Menorah.
After this you’ll discover the secrets of most famous of the seven hills of Rome … Look up from the Roman Forum valley! A very easy walk will take us to the top of the Palatine Hill, where the imposing remains of the Imperial Palace are still visible! Banquets, political battles, all the elegance and beauty of these halls: all this will be brought to life through the words of your enthusiastic guide in an unforgettable walk through the ruins…
Time will fly by that you won’t believe, as you slip away from Ancient Rome and back to the present day, that you met your guide 3 hours ago!
Please note: from October to February Colosseum and Roman Forum will close at 4:30 PM.
