What to expect

Walk in the footsteps of Roman emperors and citizens on a 3-hour tour of Ancient Rome, with VIP entrance to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. End with a walk along the Sacred Road and immerse yourself in Roman history.

The guided tour will begin atop Colle Oppio (Opium Hill), where you can enjoy breathtaking views over Rome. From there, descend to the Colosseum, avoid the long line and enter with your special VIP pass. Once inside, an expert guide will teach you about the amphitheatre's bloody past, with tales of gladiators, mock sea battles, and executions. After a brief rest at the Arch of Constantine, continue to Palatine Hill. From here, admire the views of the Roman Forum and Nero’s Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held. Your last stop will be a walk along the Via Sacra, or Sacred Road. The main path through the Roman Forum, the Sacred Road once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. End at the Temple, which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Visitors from around the world still leave flowers and candles at the site to this day.
