Full description
Start at the mighty Colosseum, the world’s largest amphitheater, that welcomed battling gladiators and beasts for thousands of Roman spectators. While so much of its history remains a mystery, your guide will share the stories that we know to be true, with a few lesser known anecdotes to surprise you.

Then move to The Forum, the center of life in Ancient Rome. Discover a huge collection of artefacts and buildings in the area give testament to the many important events that took place here. Learn about the Vestal Virgins, the celebrations, and religious sites that all marked The Forum.

Finally, move uphill to the Palatine Hill, the most historical of Rome’s seven hills. Explore the hill and the mythology that shrouds it, of how two twin baby boys met a she-wolf on this spot, leading to the founding of Rome. Of course there is more to the story, but leave it to your trustworthy guide to tell the story once you’re atop the hill to get the full experience.
