Description

Meet your guide near the Colosseum to begin your exploration of Ancient Roman history.

Visit the Colosseum first, including skip-the-line entry. Learn about the spectacular games and bloody battles that were held inside. Hear about the techniques of construction invented by the Romans, the incredible ability of the gladiators, the violent fighting between exotic animals and the high level of technology achieved by Roman engineers to built the Colosseum.

Walk around the first tiers and reach the arena to learn about the trapdoors and all the mechanisms used to animate the games. Your guide will keep you entertained with stories of sea-battles, the cages where lions were kept before the games started, the rooms in which gladiators were waiting before they reached the arena, the executions, and the excitement of the spectators attending the most spectacular, fantastic, and expensive games in human history.

After exploring the first level you will reach the second tiers to enjoy the best inside and outside view of the Colosseum. The first part of the tour will end in front of the official book shop of the Colosseum where you can find a wide assortment of books about the monument. Your tour guide will be at disposal to answer all of your questions and curiosities.

Afterwards, if you chose the Upgraded option, you explore with a Group Tour the Palatine Hill residence of the Roman Emperors, overlooking on one side the Circus Maximus and on the other side the valley of the Roman Forum. Visit the Forum after your walk through Palatine Hill. The Roman Forum is one of the most important archaeological areas in the world, with some of ancient Rome'€™s most evocative ruins: the Temple of Julius Caesar (built in the same spot where his body was cremated), the Arch of Titus, House of the Vestal Virgins, Senate House, Basilica of Maxentius, and much more.
