Know More about this tour

Explore the most monumental elements of the Eternal City with a private tour guide who will bring to life the spirit of the ancient Roman world. Enjoy the most important historical points of the city as you walk among the timeless statues, fountains, monuments, and ghosts of empires past.

Meet your guide at the hotel and start to bring your historical journey to life.

Visit the Colosseum, one of the largest surviving structures of the ancient world, where Romans once gathered to watch the gladiatoral games- battles with wild beasts, and according to legend, even sea battles. Discover how the Colosseum, a massive stone amphitheater which seated an estimated 60,000 spectators, was built in only 8 years. Your guide will unlock fascinating stories of its design and construction, the political benefits, the fighters themselves, and the eventual end of the games at the Colosseum.

At the Roman Forum, your guide will bring to life the mythology, popular celebrations of the time, and the gods of ancient Rome, which are reflected in the star signs in contemporary astrology. Learn how the pagan holiday Saturnalia influenced the unfolding of Christmas on the 25th of December today. Listen to the story of the Lapis Niger (Latin for ‘black stone’), the most ancient Latin text ever discovered in the world - which is housed in the base of one of the columns in the Forum.

Discover the Temple of the Vestal Virgins - where six young women taken from aristocratic families served as virgin priests of Vesta. They worked in the temple for a period of 30 years under different emperors and were regarded almost as goddesses. Their foremost duty was maintaining the sacred fire of Vesta which represented the hearth of Rome. As legend had it, as long as the sacred flame burned, Rome would endure.

End your tour with a wonderful view of the city and of the Imperial Forum from Capitoline Hill, the smallest and most important of the seven hills of Ancient Rome.

  • Excellent experience! I regret having toured these places before on our own, as this is definitely the only way to go. Hotel pickup was perfect avoid not knowing where to be or who the guide is-- she even waited for us an extra 20 minutes when I misread my agenda and incorrectly thought our tour was the next day!! Our guide was so knowledgeable and friendly, and her English was impeccable. My 20 year old son had studied both this specific history as well as Latin and still, we learned so much more! I'm thrilled with this tour and highly recommend it!

  • Fabiana did a great job for my granddaughter and i. She is very helpful and knows the city well. she picked us up at the hotel and got us a taxi back. we would recommend her hightly

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Our tour guide Alex met us at our apartment in Rome and quickly made arrangements for us to arrive at the Colosseum. Alex is an outstanding guide, very knowledgeable, yet able to provide information at a pace that was manageable by both my wife and I AND my two young daughters. His love of the city of Rome was radiant from the moment we began our tour and remained so right through until we finished out our tour several hours later. Time went by so quickly, yet we all felt as though we had seen and learned so much !! My family and I all agree that we would be very happy to recommend Eyes of Rome to any friends or family visiting this beautiful city. JH

  • Rachel a tour guide was absolutely amazing she new her history and translated it to us in a beautiful Italian way .And when the tour was over she made sure we new were to go to get back to our hotel. Highly recommended this tour

  • Booked this tour as part of family trip,to Rome. Our Guide Marco Mancini arrived to collect us from our hotel very promptly. Marco is clearly a passionate historian indeed he is an extremely experienced archaeologist and kept my family and I fully entertained and informed on the tour. We started at the Coloseum and through the archeological zone visiting Basilica Santiago Cosma and Damiano and finishing in Santa Maria Aracoeli. Throughout the tour he was giving great insight, answering our wquestions with ease and adding colour to the stories and legend of Old Rome. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a tour guide to anyone visiting Rome

  • Our guide was Linda and she was so enjoyable! So glad we did this tour. We did not need hotel pick up so we met
    Linda in front of the Colosseum The weather was perfect and she was wonderful. Very knowledgeable. Linda answered every question we had, told stories that made the Colosseum, The Forum and Palatine Hill come to life! Time flew by! Love Viator for finding this company Couldn't have enjoyed the day more. Tons of people standing in line and just walking through places not knowing what they were seeing or understanding the history. As Linda was speaking to us other people would try and stop and listen to her! Definitely a must when you are in Rome! Thank you!

  • Our guide, Marco, was excellent. On time, knowledgeable, personable. He went at our pace. Very enjoyable and worthwhile!
