Full description

Meet your private guide at the Colosseum. Here, your expert in Roman history will give you an introduction to the finest arena of the Roman Empire.

You'll then explore the magnificent Colosseum, which had 80 entrances and could accommodate around 65,000 spectators. Hear about the spectacular festivals the Romans held here, which could last up to 100 days. After visiting the Colosseum, you will have some time to take some pictures, buy refreshments and wander around before starting the second part of your tour. Next, learn about the daily life of ancient Rome with a visit to its most bustling center of activity, the Roman Forum – see the temples, squares, and legal buildings that would have defined this area. Finally, continue onwards to the Palatine Hill, the mythological birthplace of Rome’s founder, Romulus. Admire a spectacular view of the modern city, the ruins of Nero’s Golden House, and the Circus Maximus.

The private guided tour with Catherine was perfect, it allowed us to understand the whole history of the Colosseum and life in Rome at that time! Very enriching, our 12 and 13 year old children enjoyed it a lot and were able to ask their questions!

Committed, lively, easy-going and with extremely well-founded knowledge, we were taken into the ancient world of ancient Rome in such a good and entertaining way that the 5 stars still seem understated. Fantastic! This tour was worth every penny!
