Our guides will first take you to the spot where it all started- the Palantine hill. This is where the narrative begins. Rome is steeped in legend and mystery, but slowly the truth will emerge from the hazy tales of gods and godesses. After Romulus founds his city, things start to get really intense. Soon social upheaval gives birth to the republic, and Rome starts to really grow. Across six centuries, the Romans multiply and expand, crushing their enemies and spreading the ideas of the republic across countries and continents. Eventually, the wealth of a few is so staggering that the lives of millions are affected by the decisions of single larger-than-life characters. Sulla, Marius, Caesar, Augustus, Nero, Trajan, Aurelius and so many more transform the once noble republic into the most decadent empire the world has ever seen. Golden palaces, mass-killings, betrayals, and deadly combat in the Colosseum in front of tens of thousands of people turn the story of Rome into the most dramatic story ever told.

Well informed, entertaining, pleasant tour with guide Marco. Only complaint was that there was no bathroom or rest break at any time in all the hours we were together.
I purchased 7 tours for my Italian trip and this by far was the most waste of time. The tour guide was not knowledgeable on most Roman history and seemed to only have memorised stories ahead of time. When asked questions outside of her stories she was unable to answer them.
Also- please note this tour only covers Circus Maximus, Jewish Ghetto, Plaza Venecia and the Coliseum, The other time walking is just walking through random places and her stopping for lunch as she was hungry.
Very nice and informative. Many places many hours. Only if it was scheduled a little later because of the heat.
Very informative, covered all the important areas
