Full description
Explore the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill with a guided tour of all 3 attractions. Learn all about the biggest amphitheater in the Roman Empire, everyday Roman life, and the founding site of the city. After pickup from your hotel, skip the ticket line to enter the Colosseum. Listen as your guide tells you all about the history of this famous arena. See the arena floor from the stands, and imagine the battle scenes with gladiators and wild animals below. Next, visit the Roman Forum to see where the center of Roman social, political, and religious life took place. Home to the old marketplace and Temple of Julius Caesar, it was a grand site at the heart of Roman life. Head up Palatine Hill next, the rumored birthplace of Rome and middle of the 7 hills. Enjoy panoramic views over the city from here, including unforgettable views of the Colosseum and Roman Forum themselves. Travel along the Via Sacra, the road connecting all 3 sites, as your guide paints a picture of Roman life for your group. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back to your hotel.

    Picked up from the hotel 30 minutes too early ... we checked into the hotel exactly 5 minutes beforehand ... 1 hour drove across town, picked up guests in 2 different hotels ... Philipp was very nice ... but much too quietly spoken .... didn't wait until we came ... just left ... talked ... for € 100.00 per person I expect something different ... on this day there was no entry ... ie we paid € 200.00 for a guided tour that 90% didn't understand and took a taxi for 1 hour across the city, where we got sick ... SORRY
