Description

Start your tour by meeting your guide near the metro station by the Colosseum in the morning, and head through the dark heart of this ancient structure, into the chambers where gladiators once prepared for battles with large animals waiting in cages before making their appearance on the arena floor.

You'll dive into Ancient Rome history with your journey into the subterranean area of the world’s most famous amphitheater, the Colosseum. During your 1.5-hour tour, visit not only the underground area, but also the other sections of the Colosseum that limit regular visitors: the sandy arena where battles took place and the third level, from where you can admire the Colosseum in all its magnificence, as well as a view of the rest of the ancient city.

Leaving the Colosseum, your guide leads you on a 2.5-hour tour of the area around the Roman Forum. During this part of the tour, walk along Via Sacra, the main street of Ancient Rome, and reach the heart the Forum, where the empire's main religious and political buildings stood. See the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, where Roman priestesses tended the eternal flame, and admire the triumphal Arch of Septimius Severus and Arch of Constantine, named for the emperor who changed the course of history by defeating his rival Maxentius. Learn about the groundwork set for the decline of the pagan world and the rise of Christianity.


Then explore Palatine Hill, the most ancient part of Rome, where you'll hear about Romulus and Remus, the twin founders of this historical city.


After four hours of intense history and sightseeing, your tour concludes back at the Colosseum.

Please note that the Colosseum and Roman Forum are ancient sites and not wheelchair friendly due to the steep stairs and uneven ground. Because of the extensive walk and little opportunity to sit and rest, it is also encouraged that children and infants be carried.
