Tour Description

We begin in the Roman Forum, the social, religious and governmental hub of the entire Roman world where men like Caesar, Augustus and Nero walked the streets alongside soldiers, slaves and plebs. Here you will be immersed in the every aspect of life in Ancient Rome, from the great generals and emperors who ruled it, to the humble everyday folk and their daily grind in the Forum area.

We then head to the Colosseum, the largest and most famous theater of blood the world has ever seen-you will learn the ins and outs of the Colosseum - how it worked, what games were held and why, the myths, legends and reality of the most famous and striking ancient monuments of antiquity and the lives of the men, women and wild beasts who fought and died there.

From the Colosseum, we make our way up to the Palatine Hill, where Ancient Rome was legendarily founded by the city’s first king, Romulus and later became the site of the sumptuous Imperial Palaces. By joining our guided Ancient Rome tour, you will see these magnificent archaeological sites not as a pile of rocks but rather the focal point of the power and glory of one of the greatest civilizations in history - so powerful and enduring that it echoes through our own modern lives.
