Full description
This incredible tour goes to the very heart of ancient Rome and allows you to explore the Empire’s most iconic monuments. With your group, an experienced tour guide will take you back to the time of gladiator fights at the Colosseum. Your guide will also reveal the secrets of the Roman Forum, which was the political and economic center of the city and, therefore, of the entire empire. No tour of this area would be complete without exploring the Palatine Hill. This was the Beverly Hills of ancient Rome, where emperors and nobles resided, high above the riff-raff below. The tour duration is 2 and a half hours in total.

Meget god guide i Tijanna

Noen utfordringer med å finne guiden i og med at man hadde slått sammen turer uten å gi beskjed. Selve turen var minneverdig takket være en fantastisk guide som gav en kjempefin gjennomgang av historie, myter og gudefortellinger. Selv litt regn i løpet av de ca to timene guidingen pågikk klarte å forringe inntrykket. Anbefales på det sterkeste å ha en guide til en slik omvisning da dette gir en betydelig større innsikt i historien bak byggverkene.

The guide we got was very disappointing. Rome is a fascinating place, and I believe it is not easy to make it boring. The guide we had did. He did not tell a story, just some inconsistent facts and dates, we really felt that it could have been nicer to just read the info on our own as this guy was really not good. The place itself is amazing, and it was great to skip the line, but getting a disappointing guide ruined our experience.
