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.

Really good. I just thought kind of difficult to find the white flag before the start of the tour. I would recommend an bigger and colorful flag for the next time. Besides that, it was great. The tour guide Sara was perfect, really smart and kind person !

Good and Comprehensive tour by Maria because she is very knowledgeable of all the places we went to. Full access to all sites was indeed comprehensive. The initial meeting with the tour group can be better since we were assigned to another group and the listening channel on device was different. We also started 15 mins late but was not a big issue.

Great experience for adults with good mobility but don't reccomend for parents with kids under 12 and especially not for parents with young kids in strollers. This is a tour with a tour guide that is essentially a history teacher and you are in an amazing institu classroom that requires your attention. And it's 3 hours of an incredible story that requires your attention. Here the kids get bored and cranky and the parents get distracted and then the other group customers get distracted and the tour guide is great at trying to manage the situation. . . anyway, you get the idea. Our tour guide was awesome!
