Rome: Ancient Rome Tour and Colosseum with Gladiator’s Gate

3. Rome: Ancient Rome Tour and Colosseum with Gladiator’s Gate

Step through the Gladiator’s Gate – still standing after almost 2,000 years: As a symbol of the Roman Empire’s global power, the Colosseum is a must-visit when in Rome. The amphitheater’s endurance pays testament to the genius of Roman engineering. Within its walls were some of the most barbaric spectacles of antiquity, sanctioned by the state to keep the masses happy. Your guide will bring the ancient arena back to life, recreating its spectacles, introducing you to its spectators, and letting you in on the secrets of how this amphitheater worked. After stepping through the Gladiator’s Gate, you’ll explore the upper levels of the world’s most famous stadium, immersing yourself in the history of the powerful – and often merciless – Roman Empire. We then venture into the Roman Forum: The Roman Forum contains dozens of monuments, each with its own unique story. But only an expert guide can do the Roman Forum the justice it deserves. Among some of Rome’s most ruined ruins lie some fascinating treasures. Treasures which offer up many clues into how Romans lived, loved, worshipped, and entertained. We’ll pass by the Arch of Titus, which shows the treasures stolen from Jerusalem and used to fund building the Colosseum. We’ll visit the Temple of Saturn, one of the city’s oldest structures dating back to the 5th century BC. And we’ll visit temples not to gods but to emperors and empresses who, having died, were declared gods: the temples of Vespasian, Antoninus Pius, and Faustina. Saving the most spectacular sights until last, we view the Palatine Hill: Historically, the Palatine Hill is the most important of Rome’s Seven Hills. Romulus founded Rome on the Palatine Hill (his ill-fated brother instead set up camp on the Aventine). It was always home to Rome’s rich and famous. And over time it became the favored place for the emperors to build their elaborate palaces. In fact, it is from “Palatine” that we get our word “palace”.
