Full description
Chart a course from the tribal beginnings of Rome to its evolution into one of the most powerful empires of all time. Start your journey by exploring one of the largest triumphal arches in Roman history: the Arch of Constantine the Great, before meandering through the sites of the Roman Forum. Walk the paths of Roman citizens and emperors, and visit the hill where the legend of Romulus and Remus established the foundation of the city: Palatine Hill. Learn how it later became one of the most exclusive areas of Ancient Rome. Take a closer look at the archaeological ruins in the very heart of the empire. Hear about the Vestal Virgins and see their gardens and the pagan temple of the Goddess Vesta they served. Learn about the Basilica Julia and the penal system of Rome and it’s effects on Christianity. See the temple of Castor and Pollux and the Arch of Titus, and learn about the sacking of Jerusalem. Later, discover the Senate House, where senators met to decide the fate of the Roman Republic and how that climaxed with the murder and cremation of Julius Caesar.

    The meeting point is easy to find and there are toilets in the tourist information centre for €1 . The tour started on time and we entered the Forum straight away. Giovanni spoke through a headset which was clear. He was very well informed and described the function of the Forum, the Temples, The Senate and many other monuments. He answered any questions we had really thoroughly. I would have found it useful to have a timeline of the different Emperor’s. We walked for 2 hours and you need to bring water; there are small water jets that you can fill your bottle up with. Also you could bring a snack as there are plenty of shady places to sit after the tour and enjoy the view. There are toilets at the top of the Palatine Hill and also in the museum church . I really enjoyed this tour!

    Excellent tour with Mario through Touriks. We were only 2 for this visit in French. Mario was very interesting and not at all boring like some guides. His speech was adapted, very fluid, simple. Thanks to him for this beautiful afternoon
