Full description

Step back in time with this group tour in Rome. Travel to the Colosseum, the Forum, and Palatine Hill where your guide will help to paint a picture of the past through historical information and fascinating stories.

Start at the iconic Colosseum that once held 50,000-80,000 cheering spectators that came to see gladiatorial shows, re-enactments of famous battles, animal fights, Greek tragedies, and light theatrical performances. Walk on the floors where the spectators used to sit. Head to the Roman Forum which was the commercial, religious and political center of not only Rome but of the entire empire. Learn more about this ancient power center.

Finish your tour with Palatine Hill, which was once inhabited by wealthy patricians, who built sumptuous homes here. Take a stroll on the hill where Octavian Augustus decided the seat of the Imperial Palace should be placed.

Это просто великолепно! Экскурсовод Надежда провела прекрасную экскурсию по холму Палантин, Форому и Колизею. Обширные познания Надежды и желания подарить туристам новые впечатлегия, очень расположили нас к Надежда. 3 часа пролетели незаметно, благодоря живым расказам Надежды, на фоне исторические артифактов. Мы были в Риме с нашей младшей дочерью 9 лет, поэтому доброжелательность и легкость Надежды сыграли важную роль.

Экскурсия, в сопровождении экскурсовода Софии, нам очень понравилась. Было не только интересно, но и легко, так как присутствовала дружеская атмосфера. София отвечала на все вопросы и интересовалась, что бы мы хотели ещё узнать. Она профессионал своего дела, и знает история на все 100%. Мы рекомендуем планировать экскурсию в колезей именно с Софией.

Nos ha encantado el tour, muy informativo. Viajábamos con mi abuela y la verdad es que nuestra guía Nadezhda era muy atenta todo el camino, preocupándose siempre por su bienestar, todo un detalle. En nuestro caso el tour duró incluso más de tres horas por la cantidad de cosas que nos querían contar. Muy recomendable.
