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.

  • Fantastico! Our guide, Maria, was bubbly, fun, and an archaeologist who works on the Forum. Talk about insider's knowledge! She picked us up at our hotel and was a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide for our entire time together. She made the Colosseum and Forum come to life, showing us the important features and explained how they were used Ancient Rome, what happened to them over time, and the work that has been done to bring them to what we saw that day. She carried visuals and books that showed us what the places looked like in their prime, which helped a great deal. She walked us up to the Palatine Hill, showed us the Circus Maximus, took us through the Forum, and then helped us with suggestions for the rest of our trip. A wonderful, educated guide and we couldn't have been more pleased with this fun and highly informative tour!

  • Great guide. Great experience. Recommended.

  • This was a highly informative tour. Our guide explained all that was necessary and when we asked him questions he was a mine of information. He collected us from our hotel and showed us exactly where to pick up a taxi to get back again.

  • Outstanding tour guide, with a wealth of information! The whole concept of The Colosseum is mind boggling by even today's standards.
    A must-see for anybody who is in Rome and wants to get a real history feel!

  • Excellent first tour in Rome. What an amazing knowledgeable guide. I'm amazed at how much I learned on this tour. Thank you.

  • This was one of the best experiences of our holiday. Our guide was on time, and a very proud Roman citizen. She explained everything we asked and showed us sites on the way to the Colosseum.
    We Colosseum and Roman Forum are amazing places of the wold and I would go back and do the tour again and again, so it no surprise I recommend the tour to anyone going to 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
