Full description

Explore Rome's iconic sights on a unique tour to the Colosseum and its arena floor, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill on a walking tour. Discover unseen facets of these famous Italian landmarks and learn about their rich history from your local guide.

Enjoy a guided visit of the Roman Forum. Find the remains of public buildings, temples, the sacred dwelling of the Vestal Virgins, and more in the Forum - the political, social, and religious core of the city. Learn stories of the political dramas that played out and the lives of people who lived 2,000+ years ago.

Wander through the Palatine Hill, where Romulus chose to found his new city that became home to the rich and powerful during the Republic.

Go back in time with the iconic Colosseum. Access the arena floor through the gladiators’ gate and imagine their experience stepping out under the gaze of thousands of noisy spectators. From the arena, look down into the dungeons where the gladiators prepared themselves beforehand and where wild animals were kept.

Forum and Palatine Hill very well (many thanks to our guide), Colosseum a little disappointed, unavoidable no doubt but very very damaged by the successive dismantling operated by ..... the Catholic Church in its time .... A good also an idea of what mass tourism is (and again we were a bit off-peak....), its selfies and staging for Tik Tok.....

This tour was exceptional!!! Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the nuances and history of Ancient Rome, and my time there left me hungering for more information, which will inspire me to do further research. I was blown away by the rich, historical details. I have visited the Colosseum once before, but it was my first time going to the ground floor, and journeying to the top of Palatine Hill. The views were breathtaking, and I was caught up in another place and time. Thank you Get Your Guide for providing such an excellent, quality tour!!!

Francesco was amazing, we had a blast!! Took my mother who had zero interest in the history aspect of the tour and it ended up being her favorite part of our trip. Some people are saying the colosseum was rushed, but I thought we had a good amount of time there. The forum went by a little too quickly BUT once you see the actual location you can understand why. Francesco had pictures, was very knowledgeable, and he had such a great attitude. I wish I had asked if he did other tours
