Full description

Discover the Archaeological Park of Rome on a guided tour with skip-the-line a.

entry tickets to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum. Step back in time to explore these sites of Ancient Rome.

Also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, the Colosseum is one of the most famous monuments in the world and the symbol of the Eternal City. Inaugurated with a solemn ceremony that lasted 100 days, it was used for gladiatorial fights and wild animal hunts.

Marvel at the size of the Colosseum that had a capacity for more than 50,000 people and the ability to protect the spectators with a large awning called velarium. Then, head to the Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome.

Palatine Hill is considered the place of the foundation of the city. It was the most exclusive neighborhood where emperors built their palaces and the site is now a large open-air museum. 

From the Palatine, see the Roman Forum. For centuries the Roman Forum was the center of Roman public and economic life, where the most important structures of the ancient city were located.

One of the most informative guided tours we have had so far. Roberto was very knowledgeable in answering all our questions and giving us all the facts about Rome/Colosseum/Roman Forum. A lot of walking. He was very nice and patience. He let us know in advance there was a lot of waking and a lot of people inside the colosseum as well as to wait to take pictures (he took us to the best spots to take pics )

The guided tour was the perfect way to know the history of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. The guide, Mr. Roberto from Big Bus Tours was knowledgeable and explained us the different aspects of the Roman history. Taking the tour at 9 am helped us beat the crowds for most duration of the trip. I would recommend the tour wholeheartedly.

Nos gusto mucho este viaje guía por el coliseo y sus alrededores fue un poco incómodo el no saber con exactitud el lugar de el encuentro con el guía sugiero que cada guía debería tener contacto con las personas que hacen estos tour y al menos un día antes mandarle a cada persona una foto exacta del lugar de encuentro como la parte de afuera de un kiosko o la parte de afuera de un restaurante para así hacerlo más fácil para personas que no tengan servicio de teléfono .cómo fuel el caso mío por lo demás les dire que este tour se lo recomiendo a todas las personas interesadas en tener una gran experiencia. Muchas gracias Sandra la guía que nos atendió .
