What to expect

Get the chance to see the wonders of ancient Rome in a unique and all-embracing way! This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

Skip the long lines and access the Colosseum with your small group. Once inside, your guide will exhaustively tell you about the amphitheater's history, its location, and contexts. Explore the different areas of the Colosseum and take the best photos while learning about its construction and majestic architecture. See evidence of Nero’s great fire, discover grisly details about the gladiators' games, and unveil the truth about the many myths surrounding the place.

Continue your experience in the archaeological area, admiring other outstanding sites like the Arch of Constantine and the Palatine Hill, where Romulus fought Remus to found the city of Rome and where emperors built their sumptuous palaces. The last stop of your tour will be the Roman Forum, the heart of ancient Rome's social and political life. Walk along Via Sacra to see the remains of the Temple of Vesta, the Arch of Septimius Severus, and the Curia. Your guide will leave your group in the central area of the Forum, where you can choose to continue the visit on your own.
