  • Discover the Colosseum with a private guide retelling stories about the largest amphitheater ever built

Full description
Discover the symbol of the Eternal City itself: the Colosseum. Built between 70-80AD, the Flavian Amphitheatre, as it’s also known, was where the Roman populace was kept entertained by gory gladiatorial battles and bloody public spectacles. As well as explaining the architectural wonders of the largest amphitheater ever built, your guide will paint a picture of what it was like for gladiators to step out onto the stage and fight for their lives against man and beast.

After the Colosseum, you’ll reach the Roman Forum. Once the heart of public and political life in Ancient Rome, the Forum is now a sprawl of ruins from different periods in history. Explore this astonishing archaeological park while your guide provides insight into the lives of the citizens who once walked these very same streets.

In the final part of the tour, make the short climb to the top of Palatine Hill, said to be the spot where Romulus founded the city, killing his brother Remus in the process. During the glory days of the empire, this area was Rome’s most exclusive postcode and Augustus, Tiberius, and Domitian all built residences here.
