Your expert guide will tell the rich history and stories of the Colosseum leaving you with vivid images of an era that still fascinates and excites everyone to this day.

Roman Forum

Visit the Roman Forum, heart of Ancient Rome’s political and commercial center, where you will see the temple that houses the altar of Julius Caesar. Stroll along the original paths and admire the astonishing remains of the Via Sacra (Sacred Way), which once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. Surround yourself with majestic temples, awe-inspiring palaces, and magnificent basilicas built over two thousand years ago!

Palatine Hill

Experience Palatine Hill, the foundation and heart of Ancient Rome and where Emperors of the Roman era built their palaces overlooking the Colosseum and Roman Forum. History tells us that this is the location where Romulus killed his brother, Remus, after quarreling over where the city should be built. Take a step back in time as you are guided through the Roman Empire’s majestic villas and gardens. See firsthand where the Emperors lived, ruled, and became immortal.
