This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

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, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

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 hour

Stop At: Roman Forum, Largo della Salara Vecchia 5/6, 00186 Rome Italy

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.

Had a great guide that explained every step of the way during our tour, a lot of climbing and walking but worth every step taken and a must tour when visiting Rome, try an book for an early tour as it gets busy very quickly.

The Colosseum was an awesome venue to experience from the inside. Valerio our guide was passionate and very knowledgeable about the history of the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. The tour was value for money at just over 3 hours long. Would highly recommend.

We were paired with barbara, she had a schedule to meet and informed us she had to finish by 1415 hours. We told her on several times we had a hard time keeping up with her, but had her schedule. Finally, wife and i quit the tour with 30 minuted left. She would not make allowance for us I'm 81, wife 77, she not going to let anyone slow her up, or impact her schedule.
