Skip the long lines to Rome’s great gladiatorial arena on a 3-hour tour of the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. See the ruins of temples and markets at the Roman Forum, and travel back through more than 2,000 years of history to the days of the Roman Empire.
What to Expect
Travel back to the days of the Roman Empire on a skip-the-line walking tour of 3 famous symbols of Ancient Rome: the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum.
Meet your guide by the Arch of Constantine, and see one of the best preserved triumphal arches in Rome. Then, go inside the Colosseum, skipping the long lines with your pre-booked entrance ticket. Once inside, your guide will bring the cruel events of the Roman Republic back to life. Hear about the bloodthirsty battles between man and beast, and the emperors and audiences that cheered them on.
Exit the Colosseum, and make your way to Palatine Hill. The centermost of the “7 Hills of Rome,” it looks down on both the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus. See the ruins of the Domus Augustana, part of the vast palatial complex constructed by the Emperor Domitian on Palatine Hill in 92 AD.
Relish the views of Rome from Palatine Hill as you gaze over the remains of the Forums. See the ruins of the House of the Vestal Virgins, the former residence of the Vestals charged with keeping the eternal flame of Rome alive. Pass the site of the former Senate House, and the Capitol Palace. Follow in the footsteps of emperors and armies along the Via Sacra (Sacred Way), ending your tour inside the Roman Forum.
