We’ll also visit all the general access areas visited on regular Colosseum tours, giving you a more rounded view of this ancient structure.
After the Colosseum visit, we’ll head to the Roman Forum and the 'Via Sacra' (Sacred Way) which is the main path through the Forum. It begins at the temple which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated, the moneylenders’ shops and the home of the famous Vestal Virgins. Your guide will provide insights that will bring to life the ruins.
Then, we'll visit the Palatine Hill where you'll learn about the legend of Remus and Romulus who fought for the right to build their own city. You'll 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.
