Full description
This classic Colosseum and Forum tour is an absolute must and shows you the best of what ancient Rome has to offer. Explore the sites with a passionate Dutch-speaking guide and  avoid long queues at the entrance to these popular sights. Let yourself be carried away by the stories behind the facts and in your own language. The guide brings the ruins to life, you hear and see things that you would miss on your own. The discovery tour starts with a walk in the Roman Forum, where you will take a look at the Curia or Senate. Stop at the last resting place of Julius Caesar, stroll along the Via Sacra – a Roman road where you still see cart tracks. Continue past the perfectly preserved temple of Antoninus and Faustina up to the arch of Titus.  Finally, a visit to the Colosseum follows where your guide will share in great details stories about the brave gladiators, lion fights, sea battles and executions.

    We enjoyed this Dutch speaking tour. Everything was explained clearly and in a nice way by our guide Wouter. Time was taken for everything, but not too much time, which would otherwise make it boring. Our English is fine, but a Dutch tour is still nice to learn more and to really understand everything. Recommended!

    good tour

    Months ago we had already booked at 9:30 am but a few days before it was suddenly changed to 2:30 pm, so in the middle of the day in the sun and that was quite disappointing after all the miles in the legs that morning ... the tour was good and the explanation too. Well worth it.

    Simply Fantastic

    Guide was very good on time (from Kortrijk, but married to a real Roman). I had already done the tour a few years ago with a Dutch-speaking guide. But still I learned so much on this tour; the way he showed and told everything, his knowledge about the forum romanum, the palatine and the Colosseum: big fat compliment! Also paid a lot of attention to the people in the group (visiting the toilet, people who could not climb stairs, etc.). Would do it again, highly recommended. Thank you for this fantastic morning!
