Full description
Start your tour right outside the monumental Colosseum where you will meet your English-speaking guide. Here, your expert in Roman history will give you an introduction to the finest arena of the Roman Empire.

Explore the magnificent Colosseum, which had 80 entrances and could accommodate around 65,000 spectators. Hear about the spectacular festivals the Romans held here, which could last up to 100 days.

After visiting the Colosseum, you will have some time to take some pictures, refresh and wander around before starting the second part of your tour to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. These areas once were the social, political, and religious center of the Roman Empire where different strata of Roman society would rub shoulders. Take in the incredible ruins at Palatine Hill on a guided tour of the grounds and enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Colosseum.

For the second part of your tour, you will have the opportunity to meet your second guide, who is passionate about Ancient Rome. Make the most out of your experience by having two of the highest-rated guides lead you through the areas of expertise they know best.
