Full description

Go back in time to the glorious days of Ancient Rome on a guided tour with fast-track entry. Explore the Colosseum, Arch of Constantine, Roman Forum, Arch of Titus, Temple of Romulus, Temple of Julius Caesar, Senate House, Palatine Hill, and Stadium of Domitian. Breeze past the crowds and enter the Colosseum with your guide. As you explore this Roman structure, your guide will set the scene for what attending a gladiator match was like. Discover the first and second tiers of the Colosseum, areas that were reserved for Rome’s most elite. Learn how the Colosseum was built and the history of the bloody battles that defined ancient Roman history. Spend an hour inside the Colosseum, which is perfect for families or those who want to cover the most ground in little time. Next, follow your guide to Palatine Hill, the site where Romulus is said to have founded the city in 753 B.C.

Admire the opulent palaces characterized by detailed artifacts and mosaics. Besides being the residence of Rome’s most elite, they were enormous treasure troves. See a piece of an ancient Roman aqueduct. Finally, make your way to the Roman Forum. Be escorted around what the locals like to call “ancient downtown Rome.” Discover the cultural hub of ancient Rome where all the action happened, from senate meetings to poetry performances and political protests.

Our guide, Barbara, was fabulous! We learned so many interesting facts and saw so much. The tour was a good amount of time, not too long and not to short! just perfect!
