Know More about this tour

After meeting-up with your guide in the morning or afternoon, head to one of the most iconic monuments in the history of mankind, the Colosseum. Relive the last moments of a gladiator, hear the roaring crowd of more than 60,000 people and feel the awe that someone whos first time in Rome would have felt at the grandeur and magnificence of the Eternal City.

Next, walk along the Imperial Fora, a series of public squares constructed between 46 B.C. and 113 A.D. From there you will get a feel, and a taste, of how ancient Rome really was. These are the places where justice was administrated, prayers to the roman gods were made, the economy was run, money changed, visitors admitted, monuments erected, triumphal parades organized, slaves freed, and books kept. In simple words, this is where Romans lived. Through this street you'll getto Venice Square which still celebrates the Unification of Italy with its imposing national monument, the Vittoriano. In the same square you will recognize the famous balcony from which Mussolini spoke to his people before and during the Second World War.

Continuing on, you will discover that the current city was built on the ruins of the ancient one. Stop in Torre di Largo Argentina to meditate on the place where Julius Caesar was assassinated. From here, move to Piazza della Rotonda where you will find in front of you one of the most beautiful and best preserved building from ancient times, the Pantheon. Its story begins nearly 2000 years ago when Agrippa, faithful friend of Augustus had a temple which was dedicated to all gods in the heaven. In those days it looked very different. It was Hadrian who rebuilt the Pantheon as you see it now. Nearby is one of the most famous gelaterias and cafs. No better place to enjoy an ice cream or a lovely espresso.

Finish the tour in Navona Square, one of the most elegant squares in the world, the symbol of the Roman baroque. See what a strange, long, narrow shape it is. The square traces the same lines of the ancient stadium built by the emperor Domitian. The buildings you can admire along its sides have their foundations on top of the spectators steps around the stadium and the surface of the square itself on top of the arena where Romans held the athletics games.
