Full description

Visit the iconic Colosseum and be transported back to the Roman Empire. Stand in the amphitheater that was once the entertainment center of the city, hosting fights between gladiators and even wild animals imported from Africa and the Middle East.  At the Forum, your guide will regale you with stories of political intrigue, betrayal, and triumph. See what once was the heart of day-to-day life and explore the remains of the most important buildings and spaces of one of the greatest ancient settlements.

If you choose the express tour, you'll skip the Forum visit for a 2-hour tour that gives you more time afterward to explore Rome on your own. Then, discover Palatine Hill, where the legendary Romulus is believed to have founded the city. It became the location of the houses of affluent Romans and then home to the emperors. The ruins are impressive and the view over the Circus Maximus is a must-see.

The tour was beyond anything that we expected. Our tour guide , Claudia Rossi , besides being an amazing individual, also knows so much history and tells it with so much passion that it’s contagious. Claudia has an amazing attitude , was always smiling and patiently answering all of our questions and went above and beyond to make sure that we were fully satisfied and happy with our experience. Claudia never looks at the clock and stayed extra time to show us around the Colosseum and suggested what to do around Rome for us. God bless guides like Claudia , we still have butterflies from our experience with her tour from earlier today. Robert and Maryna

This tour was fantastic. The location is beautiful and we learned so much about its history. It was definitely the highlight of our trip. Lorenzo was a brilliant guide and was very happy to answer any questions we had. He even showed us where to get the best pasta after our tour! Thank you.

The guide Marcius was very helpful, had an excellent knowledge of the historical facts and was very descriptive during the 3 hrs tour. Absolutely vfm the package and to be honest the 3 hrs were the minimum necessary in order for someone to get all the information. I highly recommend this package to everyone.
