Highlights
  • Visit the Colosseum, the most imposing monument in Ancient Rome and the largest amphitheatre in the world
  • Delve into the Roman Forum, a valley sandwiched between the Palatine Hill and the Capitoline Hill
  • End the tour on a terrace with extraordinary views of the entire ancient valley
Full description
This tour begins with a visit to the most imposing monument in Ancient Rome- the Colosseum. Originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, after the emperor that began its construction, it was inaugurated in 80 AD and remains the largest amphitheatre in the world. The symbol of the city, the building inspires reverential awe, affirming the greatness and splendor of Ancient Rome. The amphitheatre could contain between 50,000 and 75,000 spectators, anxious to attend the bloody fights between wild beasts and gladiators.

The tour continues as you delve into the Roman Forum, a valley sandwiched between the Palatine Hill, where the city of Rome began, and the Capitoline Hill, the next landmark of your trajectory. The forum constituted the political, religious and commercial center of the city and it is here, lying between glorious temples and arches, that Julius Caesar’s body rests, commemorated by an altar that can still be visited today.

Exiting the forum, head to the Capitoline that takes its name from the hill on which it rests. Today, the site is home to the main seat of the municipality of Rome, an interesting choice of location, seeing as during the Roman era the Tarpeian Rock was used as an execution site for traitors of the empire. Your tour will end on a terrace with extraordinary views of the entire ancient valley. An unforgettable image that will surely be amongst your most treasured memories of Rome.
