Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Rome, Lazio

Your journey into antiquity begins with the Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic sights. Your guide will call on their historical and archaeological expertise to tell you all about the battles, both physical and political, that played out in this incredible amphitheater. You might be surprised to learn that ‘Gladiator’ didn’t get everything right and that feats of ancient engineering even allowed the Romans to re-enact naval battles here.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Palatine Hill, Rome, Lazio

The next stop takes you back to the very beginning. The Palatine Hill is the spot Romulus chose to found the city that would become Rome in 753 BC – a decision that ended in tragedy for his brother Remus. Here, steeped in history, you’ll enjoy spectacular views overlooking your next destination: the Roman Forum.

Duration: 1 minute

Stop At: Roman Forum, Rome, Lazio

The Forum and the Via Sacra, the Sacred Way, were the heart of Ancient Rome. All of Roman life could be found in this bustling marketplace: commerce and trade, political rallies, military parades, and the sacred ceremonies of the Vestal Virgins.
In just three hours, you’ll experience all that allowed Rome to endure so long – staying immersed in history the entire time, without wasting a moment waiting in line.


Duration: 30 minutes

Our tour guide was Maria Rosario. She was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. She was able to answer all of our questions and kept a good pace. At the meeting point there are many people (some pushy) trying to get you to buy things or give “gifts” that they then want money for and she even threw in some pointers on who to watch out for for those less knowledgeable on the subject. The colloseum was stunning as imagined as well as the other ruins on the tour. Highly recommend the tour and our guide!

Small Temple

This temple was in an area just before reaching the forum. The bronze door is the original, which makes it at least 1700 years old.

Image

The Forum

This guide went through the various buildings and their function meticulously, such things as the Roman treasury, the place where Julius Caesar's body had been cremated. (Romans still bring flowers to this day)
