Full description

Visit the iconic Colosseum and be transported back to the Roman Empire. Stand in the amphitheater that was once the entertainment center of the city, hosting fights between gladiators and even wild animals imported from Africa and the Middle East.  At the Forum, your guide will regale you with stories of political intrigue, betrayal, and triumph. See what once was the heart of day-to-day life and explore the remains of the most important buildings and spaces of one of the greatest ancient settlements.

If you choose the express tour, you'll skip the Forum visit for a 2-hour tour that gives you more time afterward to explore Rome on your own. Then, discover Palatine Hill, where the legendary Romulus is believed to have founded the city. It became the location of the houses of affluent Romans and then home to the emperors. The ruins are impressive and the view over the Circus Maximus is a must-see.

Perfect. Small group of 21 and you can hear the guide very well with the headphones. Francesc is very nice, answers our questions well and his little guide book allowed us to understand the splendor of the time. 155 euros for a family of 5 I find that correct. The visit of the palatine and the forum is of no interest to me without a guide. I recommend !!!

Such a great tour, our guide was very passionate and knowledgeable. Thanks to his storytelling skills we were really able to project ourselves back in time. This is a tour that could easily last a full day, that might be our only critique! Thank you for the tour, highly recommend it.

Very educational and fun. From the Forum and top of Palatine Hill, it is possible to really envision what Rome really looked like in antiquity. We were able to see and learn a great deal in just three hours without feeling rushed. If you have an interest in history, I highly recommend!
