Full description
Meet your certified guide, an expert on all things Ancient Rome, and join them to experience the Colosseum. Experience, firsthand, the magnificence of this overwhelming ancient structure; truly colossal, in both name and nature.

Get inside the daily life of ancient Rome with a visit to its most bustling center of activity, the Roman Forum – see the temples, squares and legal buildings that would have defined this area.

Continue onward to the Palatine Hill, the mythological birthplace of Rome’s founder, Romulus, to see a spectacular view of the modern city, plus the ruins of Nero’s Golden House and the Circus Maximus. Stop at the Arch of Constantine, the most magnificent triumphal arch of Rome’s first Christian Emperor.

Finally, walk down the Via Sacra; the most important road in Ancient Rome. This road runs from the Capitoline Hill to the Colosseum and used to be the site of the Temple of the Vestal Virgins – where the symbolic fire of the city would be kept alight.
