Full description
Discover ancient Rome on a group tour limited to thirteen people. As all entrance tickets are purchased in advance, you can skip the lines and spend more time exploring Rome, rather than waiting around. A walking tour of Rome is the perfect introduction to the city, covering the most important archaeological sites. You will discover the truth behind the legends of the gladiators and the arena on your Colosseum tour, and gain new insight into this magnificent monument. The ancient Colosseum is undoubtedly the most amazing monument in Rome, built on a vast scale in less than ten years. The spectacles that took place here were like nothing seen before or since, and they were designed to entertain not only the people of Rome but also the emperor himself. The gladiatorial games are legendary, and on your tour of the Colosseum, you’ll learn the difference between fact and fiction. 

The Roman Forum group tour is an opportunity to learn about Roman history in the very place where the events took place. These atmospheric ruins were once the political heart of the ancient city. This tour includes the Senate, the gardens and House of the Vestal Virgins, the Basilica of Julia and the Basilica of Maxentius, the temples of Saturn and Castor and Pollux, and the temple of Antoninus and Faustina. On this tour of Rome, you will also walk on one of the most important Roman roads, the Via Sacra, where you can still see the wheel-ruts of the carriages that passed over it for centuries. The triumphal arches are another highlight of your visit to Ancient Rome, the Arch of Titus and the Arch of Septimius Severus.

See the palaces of the emperors on the Palatine Hill tour. Palatine Hill is one of the most beautiful parts of the ancient city. It is also the oldest, as according to legend, this was the place where the young Romulus and Remulus were discovered by the she-wolf, and where Romulus eventually founded the city of Rome.
The Palatine Hill is the perfect place to escape the heat of the city. Take a relaxing stroll in the shady Farnese Gardens of Pope Paul III, where you will learn about Renaissance Rome and enjoy an unparalleled view of the Ancient Rome, on one of the most memorable parts of your experience.
