Colosseum tour with Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

 

Explore the history and grandeur of the ancient Roman Empire! On this tour, you’ll walk in the footsteps of gladiators and learn about the gruesome battles that took place in the arena.

This Colosseum tour includes the premier landmarks of ancient Rome: the Flavian Amphitheatre, better known as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. We provide you with “Skip the Line” access so that you can get straight to enjoying your experience.

 

The Colosseum, with a capacity of more than 50,000 spectators, stands as an enduring witness to a past of glory and violence. However, it was primarily conceived as an effective form of political propaganda and control over the population.

On your Colosseum tour, you will hear stories of famous gladiators and emperors who fought in front of the Romans.  You’ll understand how wild animal hunts were staged before the crowds that once filled the world’s largest amphitheater.

 

Then, we will head for a walk through the Roman Forum, ancient Rome’s civic and religious center. At the Roman Forum, you’ll understans the important role this originally small space played in ancient Rome through the stories of its temples and civic buildings.

Among the many ruins still visible, we’ll see the temple dedicated to Julius Caesar after his death and the ancient temple of Vesta, goddess of the hearth. The Vestal Virgins tended to the eternal sacred flame of Vesta, enabling the Romans to thrive.

 

Finally, we visit Palatine Hill, famously known as the place where the she-wolf found the twins Romulus and Remus and where Rome was founded in 753 BC. Here we will see here the remains of the ancient Caesars’ palace where the emperors once lived.

Come and experience a unique journey back in time! Immerse yourself in the ancient world, feeling what it was like to be a part of this magnificent civilization.
