Explore more of the Colosseum than was previously possible, on our Colosseum Belvedere Tour, which takes you to areas of this architecturale masterpiece that were closed to the general public for decades.
With special access to the Colosseum Fourth and Fifth Ring, you can admire arena from a height of over 40 metres and a 360° perspective, to fully appreciate the monument in its full majesty from up above. Our extended Colosseum tour also takes you to the third-tier level of the Colosseum, not visited on regular Colosseum tours. Of course we’ll also visit all the general access areas visited on our regular Colosseum tours, giving you a more rounded view of this ancient structure.
After the Colosseum we’ll head onward to the Roman Forum and the “Via Sacra” or “Sacred Way” which is the main path through the Forum that once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. It begins at the temple which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Listen as your guide points out all of this, plus moneylenders’ shops and the home of the famous Vestal Virgins, bringing these magnificent ruins to life.
We finish our tour at the beginning, the Palatine Hill, where legend has it Remus and Romulus were found by the she-wolf, and where they went on to fight for the right to build their own city. Romulus won, making this exact spot where Rome was founded. Explore some of Rome’s oldest ruins, once decadent palaces and gardens, as well as some of the most beautiful views in the whole city.
Using headsets for the duration of the tour, will make it more intimate and your expert, English-speaking guide will be easy to hear and interact with. Your guide will be there to cater to your group’s needs and interests, making this tour our most special way to experience the wonders of Ancient Rome.
