What to Expect
Discover the fascinating archaeological sites, dotted around the Italian capital on this 3-hour Rome walking tour. Your guide is an expert in archeology and history, and will meet you at the Arch of Constantine. Let history come to life as you hear stories of life for emperors and citizens in Ancient Rome. Wander beneath the triumphal arch built in honor of the emperor Constantine, then head to the Colosseum, by-passing the long lines to enter.

Wander through the Colosseum, the largest amphitheater ever made by the Romans, and admire this vast structure that could seat more than 50,000 people. See the arena where the gladiators fought for their lives, and where many other spectacles took place. Learn about its fascinating history before continuing the tour to the Roman Forum, once the political and religious center of Ancient Rome, dating back to the 7th-Century BC.

Explore the life of the Ancient Romans at the Forum’s most important buildings and temples, such as the Temple of Augustus, where the funeral of Julius Caesar took place. Go to the Via Sacra (Holy Road), once the most important road in Rome, and tour the Curia, the meeting place of the Roman Senate. Finally, head to a nearby typical enoteca (wine bar) where you can recount stories of battles and glory over a glass of exquisite Italian wine.
