Full description
Meet your guide on the magnificent Piazza Navona and be taken on an extended tour of the area. Catch the best of Baroque Rome including the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and Piazza Venezia while taking in the bustling Roman atmosphere en route!

​At Trajan's Column, a massive monument to Emperor Hadrian's victory in Dacia which boasts a myriad of tales in it's serpentine bas-relief, rest for a short while before continuing on with your visit to the Roman Forum archaeological area. Make no mistake, this is where you will learn the A to Z about the origins, rise to power and inevitable decline of the Caput Mundi, the great ancient city of Rome.

A short walk away lies the Icon of Rome. At the Colosseum, tour groups are hard to avoid at any time of day. However your experienced guide will steer you away from the crowds and walk you around the circumference of the Colosseum, pointing out all the highlights and curiosities of the massive amphitheater before leading you into the arena through Gladiator Gate, the far less populated entrance with no waiting time and no stress. On the other side of Gladiator Gate, find yourself standing on the original Colosseum arena floor. From here you will have a bird's-eye view of the entire structure all around including the underground chambers which are better seen from above.​
