Colosseum and Archaeological Park of Rome Tour

4. Colosseum and Archaeological Park of Rome Tour

Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum is one of the most famous monuments in the world. Opened to the public with a solemn inauguration that lasted 100 days, it was used for gladiatorial fights (murena), wild animal hunts (venationes) and, with the arena filled with water, simulated sea battles (naumachiae). Built where there had been an artificial lake of the Nerone’s Domus Aurea, it had a capacity for approximately 73,000 people with a large awning (velarium) which protected the spectators from the sun and the rain.  It’s 2,000 years old, but the Colosseum remains a symbol of the Eternal City. The Palatine, with the development of Rome and the continued embellishment of the Forum, due to its close proximity to the seat of power, became a fashionable place to live and the most exclusive neighborhood where  emperors and patrician families built opulent palaces. The Roman Forum was for centuries the center of Roman public and  economic life, where the most important structures of the ancient city were located.

What people are saying about Roman Forum

I've done multiple tours in Rome (and elsewhere). This was an excellent tour. Federica, our guide, was a local with incredible knowledge to answer our copious amounts of questions. Her impressive knowledge was matched with her enthusiasm for her job and for Roman history. Highly recommended and worth every penny.

The private guided tour with Catherine was perfect, it allowed us to understand the whole history of the Colosseum and life in Rome at that time! Very enriching, our 12 and 13 year old children enjoyed it a lot and were able to ask their questions!

The tour was very interesting and informative. The guide, Mrs. Laura Napoli, was extraordinary and told us a lot of good things without ever getting bored. Really very good!

The fantastic guide! We spent 3 very pleasant hours, with a very prepared guide, very clear in explaining the topics, kind, ironic !!! Super guide Ladu Bernadetta.
