Full description
Wander through such celebrated sites as the Colosseum and the Roman Forum – the largest archaeological area in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site – and experience the over-two thousand year history of the fascinating and long-lived Roman Empire. Take advantage of our skip-the-line admission through the dedicated express lane and get the most out of your time in Rome! Experience not to miss! Start with both the 1st and 2nd levels of the Colosseum to get a full understanding of this iconic monument. Relive the thrilling spectacle of the gladiators, slaves and wild animals who fought to the death right here almost two thousand years ago through the colourful account of your guide. Hear about why such brutal fights were staged, how the crowd voted, how the protagonists lived and trained and how much the gladiators were paid. Find out how such an immense structure was built and how the complex back-stage mechanisms and underground tunnels worked. Climb to the top tiers and absorb the evocative atmosphere of this unique and ancient venue. Feel the immensity of Ancient Rome with all its contradictions Visit the Roman Forum where you'll get to feel what day-to-day life in ancient times was like. Immerse yourself back to the days when this was the busy and bustling centre of the largest city on earth, peopled by the rich and the poor – doctors, sailors, priests and prostitutes of all nationalities. Learn about the vibrant lifestyle of the ancient Romans, their brightly coloured clothes and richly decorated homes. Stroll along the Sacred Road in the footsteps of the ancient Roman citizens, past temples, market-places, villas and triumphal arches. Discover the secrets behind the power and longevity of the Ancient Roman civilisation. Finally, travel towards Palatine Hill. This inspirational spot is where the history of Rome began. Legend has it that this is where the twins Romulus and Remus were raised by the she-wolf and the foundations of Ancient Rome were laid. It was also here that the domination of the Roman Empire came to an end. Learn why it was mostly the rich and influential who lived on the Palatine Hill, see the remains of the glorious emperors’ villas, and take in the spectacular views they enjoyed over the chariot races on Circus Maximus. Be inspired by the atmosphere of such a historically significant location.

Buonasera! We had a great tour along the many sights of ancient Rome with Anna. What was so nice is that Anna actual tells stories. A story you remember, facts you do not really remember. At least I do struggle to remember facts. And it is clear she studied history so she gives it her personal touch and perspective. So we are very happy with her guiding us and my son of 13 is completely in agreement and was already saying it was better than expected. Hope others will have a similar experience.

Our guide Anna with Emotion tours was so knowledgeable and gave us a wonderful tour. She is very passionate about ancient Rome and told stories as we walked along that gave us an real impression of what life was like in those times We particularly enjoyed the colleseum and Anna's insights on how the events were conducted and experienced by the audience and participants. It was especially moving when we walked the same path as the gladiators did to enter the arena to meet their fate. Anna made this a very rewarding experience for us and even stayed longer then the scheduled time since we had so many questions for which she always had the answer we would highly recommend this small group tour with Emotion and Anna if she is available.

It was a great experience to see the inside of the Colosseum and the Froum. Our guide Tatiana was really nice and caring for our group needs and her stories really brought us back in time to imagine what life looked like back in the days. It was also really easy to book the tour on the website and I really appreciated the whatsapp message with the instructions and photo of the meeting point! Our tour was a pleasant and interesting experience and we will definitely use Get Your Guide for our future trips.
