PRIVATE and SMALL GROUPS
• Ancient Rome + Pantheon Tour•
Follow us through more than 12 centuries of ancient Roman history, from the time of Romulus, Remus and the She-wolf up to the barbarian invasions as we walk the city to enter the mighty Pantheon!
How does the Ancient City + Pantheon Tour work?
We will start at the glorious Colosseum!
Visit the stadium just like an ancient spectator, climb the stairs up to the first tier where you will be struck by the spectacular view over the arena: this ancient stage.
Imagine gladiators wounded by wild lions and tigers and criminals skinned alive and fed to wild animals during the public executions. Then in the afternoon, after a long day of incredible shows, you could place a bet (but not for real!) on the gladiators fighting for their lives.
After the Colosseum a short walk will take us to the Arch of Constantine and then, within a few minutes, you’ll find yourself in the busy heart of the ancient world: the Roman Forum.
Our guides will weave a stories and pictures of daily life in the busy forum. Imagine traders selling their goods, hundreds of naked slaves in line waiting to be bought and sold, politicians speaking to the crowd, judges sentencing criminals, teachers surrounded by their students, priests worshipping pagan gods and predicting the future, and the ancient art of the pickpockets running off with someone’s bag.
Be inspired by the beauty of the most important ruins of antiquity: the Temple of Saturn, the Tabularium façade, the ancient Senate house of Rome, the Temple of Julius Cesar, the house of the Vestal Virgins and their sacred flame. 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 image of the glorious Jewish Menorah.
Next will be the Pantheon Tour: the temple of all the Gods turned into a Church, Santa Maria dei Martiri, in the VII Century…
You probably won’t believe how well preserved it is, how big the dome is and that, believe it or not, … it’s just one solid piece!
If it rains you have the chance to try see if any drops fall inside the Pantheon: there’s a hole right in the center of the dome and the Romans believe no water can fall inside – even when it rains!
And for the finale of the tour … the most delicious Gelateria in Rome, where you’ll have the best gelato of your life! Promise!
This single day will be enough to see the main wonders of the eternal city, and you will never forget this day in Rome!
