Full description
Discover the main monuments of Ancient Rome on a half-day walking tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Traveling in a small group of no more than 8 people for a more personalized experience, you will start outside the Colosseum to admire the Roman Republic’s most famous arena. Your reserved skip-the-line entrance ticket then takes you past the long lines to go behind Rome’s most symbolic façade and stand where mighty gladiators and fearsome emperors once stood. Next, walk through the heart of Ancient Rome’s political economic and religious life, looking at the ruined temples and markets, such as the Temple of Saturn, Arch of Septimus Severus, and Temple of Vespasian and Titus. End at the foot of Capitoline Hill, one of the legendary 7 Hills of Rome and the former citadel of the earliest Romans, stopping on Piazza Venezia, now dominated by the imposing Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, 1st King of Italy.

      Our Fantastic Tour Guide Made Sense of It All!

      Without Alessandro, our fantastic tour guide, I would've looked at the Colosseum & Forum, and thought it was cool, but completely miss the history of what these places once were and how they transformed over the centuries. Alessandro was immensely knowledgable, kept our kids engaged, and even took fantastic pictures for our family photo albums. So grateful!
