Full description
Explore Rome through the lives of its imperial emperors and Roman citizens on a private tour that helps bring the glory days of the Roman Republic back to life.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, follow your guide into the Colosseum, skipping the long lines to see the remains of the vast amphitheater where Rome’s infamous gladiator contests took place. Sense the sweat and blood, and the roars of the crowds as your guide retells the stories of Rome’s gory spectacles. Go to Palatine Hill, where, according to legend, Rome was founded 2,766 years ago.
