What to expect

Relive the time when Rome ruled the world!

Enjoy a personalized experience thanks to your expert and licensed tour guide and get the most of your experience thanks to your skip-the-line ticket. During the tour, you will have all the time you need to experience the beauty and to soak up the atmosphere of this special experience; your guide will use ipads to illustrate stories and explanations.

Start your experience from the Colosseum, ancient Rome’s most celebrated building. Your expert tour guide will take you on a thorough tour of the stunning interior of Ancient Rome's most famous building. You will learn how the Romans managed to build this massive structure that was originally a third of a mile in circumference on marshy ground, and how it was designed to allow an unruly crowd of some 50,000 spectators to enter and exit with ease. Learn how the hidden mechanisms of Ancient Rome's most celebrated building created the fabulous stage effects that accompanied the violent games held here. You’ll find out about the types of games held in Colosseum and what these events meant to Roman citizens.

Then, you'll admire Constantine's Arch, a triumphal arch that sits between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. Built to mark Constantine I’s victory at the Battle of Milvian Bridge. Our guides will tell you how its great reliefs – a sculptural technique - influenced Baroque artists in Rome as well as the function of triumphant arches in the city.

Experience a fascinating walking tour through the striking remains of the Ancient Roman Forum, the cradle of Western civilization and the main square of the Roman Empire. Learn more about its history brought to life by tales of Ancient Rome's society, their beliefs as well as tales about their family and civic lives. Through the tour you’ll also learn what role the Forum played in Ancient Rome, and its influence on succeeding generations.

Your tour of Ancient Rome will finish on the Palatine Hill, an enchanted place where you can experience a fantastic panorama over Rome's archaeological area.
