Full description
Start the tour with pickup from your centrally located hotel in Rome before heading off for a Roman adventure like no other. Meet your guide for the day, a PHD archaeologist who will be at your disposal, armed with a lifetime of knowledge to share with you. Enjoy the luxury of customizing the tour to your interests and use your guide's recommendations to make your decision.

Retrace the steps of the Ancient Romans as you stroll along the Decumanus Maximus, the main street of the site, and experience what life was like for these historic people. Visit the Caupona, where the Romans would have enjoyed an evening of eating and drinking, stop by the Thermopolium bar, then discover the Square of the Guilds, a business center where big decisions would have been made.

Next, wander around the old public baths and the firemen barracks to learn about the efficiency of the Romans in preventing and extinguishing fire. Immerse yourself in history and listen to your experienced guide share their wisdom of this fascinating place. Leave the busy city of Rome behind as you explore all the site’s highlights including the Cippus of Caninius, Bath of Neptune, Caupon, Castrum, Forum, Capitolium, Basilica, Temple of Rome and Augustus, and Bath of the Forum.
