Look at the Arch of Constantine, erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine's victory over Maxentius. Then, walk along the ancient Via Sacra to the Roman Forum. Here, your guide will explain why myths and legends were such powerful political tools in Ancient Rome.

Listen to a fascinating history of the ruins, including the ancient shrine of Lapis Niger, the House of the Vestal Virgins, the Column of Phocas, and the Tarpeian Rock.

Next, ascend Palatine Hill from the Roman Forum to see the site where the Lupercal, where Romulus and Remus were found, is believed to be still concealed. On the Palatinum, view the House of Livia, and look down on Nero's revolving dining room. Stroll through the 17th century gardens and aviaries above the Flavian Palace and Domitian's Greek Circus.
