Full description
Travel back in time to the days of Roman gladiators, great rulers, emperors, and popes on a 3-hour skip-the-line tour of Ancient Rome. Learn about the monuments and divine statues of the imperial city, and see Roman buildings, amazing architecture, mysterious and mythological places.
Start your tour at the monumental Colosseum. Built almost 2,000 years ago, the Colosseum remains a staggering feat of engineering, and one of the most iconic monuments in the history of mankind! Relive the final moments of a gladiator, and hear the roaring crowd of more than 60,000 spectators.
Continue to the Roman Forum and tread the same roads as Julius Caesar, the emperor Augustus, and other great men of ancient times. Stop to reflect upon the place where Julius Caesar’s ashes were placed. Then, walk along the Sacred road where Vestal priestesses walked up to their house and their temple. See the Senate House and admire the courts where the most important figures of the ancient world spoke.
Go up on the hill of the Palatine, where the most important emperors lived, starting from Augustus and walk through the great Domitian Palace. Admire the oldest botanical garden in the West, the Farnese Gardens, or Horti Farnesiani. Learn the story of the location of the Lupercal, the cave where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf.
