1. Rome: Colosseum Arena Guided Tour, Forum & Palatine Option
Enjoy a full immersion in Ancient Rome’s history with an expert live guide during a walk through the ruins of the archeological area of the Roman Forum and Palatine hill and marvel at the largest amphitheater built during the Roman Empire — the Colosseum. Learn about the culture, religion, and everyday life of the Romans while walking through what the Romans called the Sacred Road inside the Roman Forum, the street where the temples were standing, and see the ruins of the temple of Cesare and of the temple of Saturn, as well as many others. Have your tour guide bring to life the Roman Forum as you stroll through its ruins such as basilicas, arches, and statues, as it's believed that it was a marketplace for everyday shopping and then developed to be the setting for many public events. Climb on top of the Palatine Hill and see with your own eyes the ruins of the Imperial Palaces and let your guide take you to the terrace with one of the most breathtaking views of the Roman Forum. Visit the first and second level of one of the oldest stadiums still standing and let your guide make you feel like one of the spectators of the ancient fights that took place in the Colosseum. Get the exclusive chance to walk through the Gladiator’s entrance and feel like a gladiator yourself while standing on the reconstructed stage of the Arena as the guide tells you all about the Lions, fights, and games that took place almost 2000 years ago. While on the Arena enjoy the overview of the underground and have your tour guide tell you everything about the inner workings of the Colosseum and its games.
