Know More about this tour

Forget about the Super Bowl, the World Series, and the World Cup. The Colosseum has hosted the most spectacular games ever. Its estimated that more than 500,000 people, and a million animals, lost their lives battling in the arena. Well also literally step back in time in our walk through the Roman Forum, retracing the steps of Caesar, Augustus and Nero.

As you walk down Ancient Romes chief street, the Via Sacra, youll focus on the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated; the House of the Vestal Virgins, a temple where priestesses vigilantly guarded the eternal flame of the Empire; the Senate, where key decisions that guided the course of western history were made; the Arch of Septimius Severus; as well as many other extraordinary monuments and ruins.

Youll visit the Palatine Hill, site of the citys very earliest settlements, which became the preferred residential area for most powerful and richest Roman families. Youll stop to marvel at the Arch of Constantine, celebrating Constantines victory over the pagan world, and marking the moment when Christianity became the official religion of the Empire.

Then you will walk to the Colosseum, the imposing amphitheater that was inaugurated in 80 A.D. Once inside, your guide will vividly recount the bloody events that took place in the Colosseum, bringing it all to life with tales of the gladiators, exotic animals, mock naval battles and executions.

  • This was a great tour and really worth the money. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was a wonderful source of information and for putting the sites into perspective.

    It was a long tour of around 4 hours but excellent and I got much more out of visiting the sites than had I just had the audio guide and wandered around by myself.

    Highly recommended if you want to get something more out of your visit.

  • Our tour was moved from 8am to 9am. We normally would be OK with sleeping in a little longer. But we had another tour at the Vatican at 1:45. So unfortunately, we couldn't finish the tour or visit the gift shop for some souvenirs which was a little disappointing. Adrian was our tour guide for the ancient Rome and forum. He was quite knowledgeable, and humorous. Really appreciated him. The headsets were quite helpful as there were so many people and we were able to hear him. The tour was turned over to another company for the colosseum part of the tour. The young lady was fine. Unfortunately her headsets were not compatible with Adrian's earbuds, so we either had to get closer to hear her or hold the headsets to our ears to hear which made for tired arms. Definitely get a skip the line tour, unless you like waiting in long lines. It poured in the morning so there were no lines. But once the rain stopped, the crowds came in force.

  • FAntastic, small group, no lines, knowledgeable guide who obviously loves history and Rome!

  • Worth the money, very good tour. Educational and interesting. So glad we did this.

  • We really enjoyed the path of this tour which also included Palantine Hill. Gabriella of Roma Experience was wonderful. She really explained everything, and made sure to bring use to beautiful locations for photos. After looking at other itineraries for similar tours, very pleased with choosing this tour due to the addition of Palantine Hill, and the informative nature of the tour. The tour ends with free time to explore the Roman Forum.

  • It rained on the day the our was scheduled and the Colosseum was closed. I was very impressed by the way I contacted by the tour operator to advise me of the problem and working to reschedule -- very well done! Unfortunately, due to the rain, the tour was cut a bit short -- could not access the Forum area.

  • Our group of 6 was led by Ariana who was very friendly and informative. She utilized an iPad to show us information to supplement her narrative which was outstanding. There was lots of walking as we covered the entire Collosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum, so good walking shoes are a must.

  • Excelent! Our Tour Guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly recommend.
