    Full description
    Chart a course from the tribal beginnings of Rome to its evolution into one of the most powerful empires of all time. Start your journey by exploring one of the largest triumphal arches in Roman history, the Arch of Constantine the Great, before a guided tour around the Roman forum.  Walk the paths of Roman citizens and emperors, and visit Palatine Hill, where Romulus and Remus are said to have founded the city. Learn how it later became one of the most exclusive areas in Ancient Rome. Take a closer look at the archaeological ruins in the very heart of the empire. Hear about the Vestal Virgins, and see the pagan temple of the Goddess Vesta where they served. Learn about the Basilica Julia and the penal system of Rome and it’s effects on Christianity. See the Temple of Castor and Pollux and the Arch of Titus, and learn about the sacking of Jerusalem. Later, discover the Senate House, where senators met to decide the fate of the Roman Republic and how that climaxed with the murder and cremation of Julius Caesar. Finally, your guide will tell you all about the Circus Maximus, as you look over it from the scenic terrace of Palatine Hill. Hear about the chariot races and entertainment events that took place there. After the tour, you can stay in the area as long as you wish.
