Full description
Begin this 3-hour sightseeing tour of Imperial Rome at the world’s most famous arena; the Colosseum. Once able to seat up to 50,000 spectators, building of the Colosseum began in 72 A.D. and was finished 8 years later. The scene of wild entertainments - often between man and beast - this mighty monument has been immortalized over the centuries. Today you can walk on the ancient stones of the Via Sacra, leading from the Colosseum past some of the most important sites of the Roman Forum to Capitoline Hill. At the Roman Forum you will be at the real political center of the Republic and Imperial Rome.

All perfect

Lucilla, a very prepared tour guide, not only showed us the wonders of ancient Rome but also made us understand how people lived, but above all, what the culture and thought of the ancient Roman was. Topic unknown to us. Three hours passed quickly, great experience. Highly recommended tour with perfect organization.

We had an exciting tour thanks to our warm and cultured guide who took us off the beaten track and didn't count her time.

lack of knowledge

The guide did not speak Portuguese very well. She did not know how to explain several important points. Shallow explanations and no content.
