Itinerary
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, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 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.


Duration: 30 minutes

Our tour guide was excellent. He was very friendly and had full of knowledge. Last time I went for the tour was 12 years ago with a different company but the guide had such a strong accent that we all had a hard time understanding what he was saying, but our guide this time was very good and we've enjoyed the tour.

Even if you have visited the Colosseum before, this trip is still worth it. Our guides shared so much information and this trip let us see the underground of the arena as well as the top level- where the views were amazing.

Fantastic tour. Very well run. Guide was extremely knowledgeable and had us all envisaging what it must have been like in its heyday.

This is not a TOUR, but the skip the line entrance to the Colosseum. Easy process, meet the guide on the metro station, head to the Colosseum. The guide will give some brief information and leave you for one hour to explore. Then you will meet the guide again so you can enter the Forum area without lines as well. Great deal. Recommended.

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)
