What to expect

The most famous of Rome’s many ancient sights, the Colosseum is an imposing, incredible structure, that transports you back in time to the Roman Empire’s powerful past. Your friendly and professional guide will delve into the mystery that shrouds the games held there and the fascinating stories of the famous gladiators who thrilled the crowds with their brutish fighting.

You'll then embark upon the second part of the tour heading to Palatine Hill. Before Rome became a city, it was a cluster of seven separate villages built upon the seven hills of Rome. The centremost of these was Palatine Hill, which made it a perfect spot for King Romulus to found Rome nearly three thousand years ago. Nowadays, it features ruins of several Roman palaces and offers stunning views across the city.

Your final stop is the Roman Forum, the beating heart of Ancient Rome. Here, you will be able to walk in the Emperors’ footsteps and marvel at the amazing views over the Imperial Forum, finding out about what life was like for the Romans of that era in the political, social and economic center of the ancient city. You’ll then wrap up the tour, after which you’re welcome to roam freely through the Forum.
