Full description
Your Ancient Rome tour start at either your hotel (if close enough to the attraction), or an agreed and easy meeting spot. You will be met by your professional art-historian guide, who you will then continue to embark on your tour with.

Your first stop will be Capitol Hill, the city hall square designed by Michelangelo where you will enjoy the view of the Roman Forum. Walking through the Forum, your guide will tell you how life was in ancient times. You can see the Senate House, the Temple of Saturn, the Temple of Julius Cesar, the Temple and the House of the Vestals, the Temple of Antonino Pio, the Arch of Septimio Severus, the Arch of Titus, the ancient basilicas and many other places.

You will then arrive to one of the main attractions of the world, the Colosseum. This outstanding 1st-century amphitheater is where thousands of animals and gladiators performed their tragic shows. You will have preferential access, as you skip the lines to the entrance thanks to the pre-booked tickets included in the fee of the tour. During your visit, you will learn and understand how the Romans built this grandiose structure, and how they organized different kinds of shows.
