Full description
Book a guided tour with an local tour guide to explore ancient Rome through a 3D reconstruction of the Colosseum in a completely immersive and virtual way. With a walking tour of ancient Rome made by one of the professional guides, discover the culture, religion and everyday life from the settlements of the first inhabitants of the Eternal City to the spectacles of the Colosseum. Before getting inside the Colosseum with your skip-the-line wearing a last generation display Oculus VR, you will be virtually immersed in the ancient Rome of nearly 2000 years ago, when the Colosseum knew its moments of greatest glory and fame.

Through the reconstruction in 3D of the Colosseum integrated by an accurate audio description, you will walk 'live' in the square, admiring the majestic statue of Nero inside the arena between the roar of ferocious lions and gladiators fighting. Finally, head into the mysterious underground where slaves move around silently to prepare and coordinate all the paraphernalia necessary to make the show a success. Only the three-dimensional reconstructions of the ancient monuments can offer a comprehensive understanding of their history and allow you to 'see' and 'live' the life of the Roman people as if you were really present in those times, experiencing in this way a multimedia and multisensory virtual tour experience.

Completing the virtual experience, your guide will accompany you inside the most famous and best preserved ancient monument in the world, the Colosseum. The symbol of Rome and all of Italy, the Flavian Amphitheatre, better known as the Colosseum, was the place where spectacles happened, built to accommodate from between 50,000 to 75,000 spectators. Once you finish your adventure inside the Colosseum, your tour guide will take you through the triumph of the emperors. The Roman Forums are simply the squares built by the rulers of the empire to glorify their power. Passing directly from Roman Forum, you will visit the Palatine Hill, House of Romulus, the founder of Rome and see a real open air museum. As one of the seven hills of Rome, this area provides the history of the Roman settlements with its houses, temples and many other sights of daily life.
