After entering the Colosseum, tour the amphitheater as your guide brings history to life. Visit the normally off-limits arena floor and imagine the roaring crowds from the gladiators’ perspective.

Next up, visit the Roman Forum, the epicenter of Roman political, religious, and social life. Home to the Temple of Julius Caesar and Roman Senate, it was full of grand, classical architecture and a marketplace.
