Full description
Your journey starts with a visit to the Roman Forum, the heart of the ancient city. There you’ll explore the magnificent ruins of temples, courthouses, and triumphal arches as you learn about daily life in the ancient world and walk in the footsteps of some of the greatest figures in history. In the company of an expert guide you’ll get to discover the Roman Senate, the Temple of Julius Caesar, the beautiful House of the Vestal Virgins, and so much more.

Following that, thanks to your skip-the-line tickets you'll be able to enter the Colosseum straight away through a special gate that was once reserved for the gladiators themselves. Get the real story behind the gladiator games that lit up the ancient amphitheater nearly 2,000 years ago, and feel history come alive as you hear the distant shouts of the combatants and the shrieks of a spellbound crowd echoing through the centuries.

Discover how the fights unfolded and what fate lay in store for both the victors and the losers. Learn how exotic wild animal hunts, brutal executions, and even mock sea battles kept the massive crowds satisfied. You'll also see exactly what the ancient spectators saw from the Colosseum’s second level.
