After a short break, meet your guide just steps from the Colosseum, where you’ll want to take some pictures of the spectacular view before we descend to the entrance.

Once inside, your guide will paint an accurate picture of the gladiator games that took place in the Roman empire’s most impressive arena, helping you to decipher between fact, fiction, and the images portrayed by big-screen Hollywood blockbusters. After walking around the perimeter of the Colosseum, gaze down onto the arena floor and beneath to the maze-like underground level where man and beast awaited their moment of glory or met their fateful death. Follow your guide outside the arena and travel even further back in time as you enter the Roman Forum, the true heart of ancient Rome with monuments dating as far back as the 7th century BC. Learn of the legendary founding of Rome on the Palatine Hill and how a she-wolf rescued and nursed the young twins Romulus (the first king of Rome) and Remus after they washed up on the banks of the Tiber River.

This was a unique, interesting experience for us. Being Christian, we really enjoyed the opportunity to sit where Paul likely sat while writing 2 Timothy. This spot is not overly crowded but right at the forum.

No hassle booking. Meeting point was easy to find. Our guide Stefano was great in providing general information about the sites we visited. Great job Stefano! Andiamo!

In the voucher office the girls were very helpful and nice, also skip the line function was a huge huge help. Absolutely worth it.

So moving to be in the place where Peter and Paul may have been imprisoned.

I recommend and recommend. I will use get your guide again.
