Description

With this tour, you will discover one of the “New 7 Wonders of the World”, Rome’s Colosseum. An instantly recognizable symbol of the power and scale of the former empire, also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, its construction took place between 70-80 AD and the oval amphitheater hosted the most horrific spectacles of the era. You will learn how it was used as a stage for gladiatorial combat, public executions, animal hunts and the less bloodthirsty performances of acrobats and magicians.


Your guide will then take you to the spectacular Roman Forum, the centre of Roman public life, which contained the most important structures of the day including temples, shrines, marketplaces, the political centre, royal residences and basilicas. Through your guide’s descriptions, you will get a feel for how Roman life must have been and how the present ruins would have appeared thousands of years ago.
Then you will walk up to the Palatine Hill, the location of the Imperial Palace, which overlooks the Forum on one side and the Circus Maximus on the other, where ancient chariot races were once held. Hear the legend of how the hill was the birthplace of Rome’s founder and namesake Romulus and his brother Remus. Then hear the tale of how there was a tragic end to their story that led to the creation of Rome.
Hearing the history and legends of Ancient Rome and walking in the footsteps of the emperors will make this an unforgettable experience that you will treasure for years to come!
