1. Glory of Ancient Rome and Colosseum 3-Hour Private Tour
Immerse yourself in the glory of Rome on a private 3-hour tour to the Colosseum, Imperial Forum and Capitoline Hill. Following a pick-up from your hotel, go to the Colosseum and skip the long lines to get inside, saving up to an hour’s waiting time. Once able to seat up to 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum was the Roman Republic’s mightiest arena, taking 8 years to complete in the 1st century AD. Follow in the footsteps of the fearless gladiators that took on mighty beasts at the command of formidable emperors and baying crowds. Next, walk the cobblestone Via Sacra to the center of the Republic at the Roman Forum. Marvel at the ruins of ancient basilicas, triumphal arches, honorary columns, and historic cemeteries. Continue to Capitoline Hill, and on to the Centro Strorico (Historic Center), where you will stop at Piazza Venezia to admire the early 20th-century monument dedicated to Victor Emmanuele II, first king of a unified Italy.
