Full description
On this guided Colosseum tour you will visit the Roman Forum -- the heart of Ancient Rome, the political, economic and social center of the Roman Empire. Here, you will witness excavations of one of the most astounding archaeological sites in the world, which was buried nearly 30 feet underground for over a thousand years.

From there, your Colosseum tour guide will begin an ascent above the Forum up the Palatine hill, on one of the most historically famous and important of the seven hills of Rome. The Palatine hill offers broad views across the Forum against the back drop of the imposing Vittoriano monument.

Finally, you will be brought to the Colosseum to learn about its amazing structural design and how it became known as “il Colosseo." You will hear stories about the amazing and terrifying events that took place in its sand and wood arena, where thousands of gladiators and other Roman personalities fought to their deaths or were fed to wild beasts in front of the people of Rome.
