Full description
Start your tour right outside the monumental Colosseum where you will meet your guide. Here, your expert in Roman history will give you an introduction to the finest arena of the Roman Empire. Explore the magnificent Colosseum, which had 80 entrances and could accommodate around 65,000 spectators. Hear about the spectacular festivals the Romans held here, which could last up to 100 days. After visiting the Colosseum, you will have some time to take some pictures, refresh and wander around before starting the second part of your tour to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. These areas once were the social, political, and religious center of the Roman Empire where different strata of Roman society would rub shoulders. Take in the incredible ruins at Palatine Hill on a guided tour of the grounds and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Colosseum.

    Our guide was Lumi and she was fantastic! She told the whole history of the Colosseum and Forum like a fantastic, exciting story and it was very easy to follow. Her humor was great and she was very caring. I highly recommend the tour for anyone as a good start into the history of Rome!! Thanks a lot, Lumi.

    Last week I was able to do a guided tour with Crown Tours, specifically Lumi as our guide. Lumi was an amazing guide, she was funny and knowledgeable about Rome‘s history. It was a pleasure listening to her while looking at the beautiful sights at the colosseum and the Forum.

    We had a great tour with Lars. He conveyed the history of Rome to us in such an exciting way that even the children were absolutely thrilled. The three hours passed by in a flash. We can unreservedly recommend the tour. Alone, without experts, you would have just looked at old stones without knowing what it is.
