Full description

Explore Rome's iconic sights on a unique tour to the Colosseum and its arena floor, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill on a walking tour. Discover unseen facets of these famous Italian landmarks and learn about their rich history from your local guide.

Enjoy a guided visit of the Roman Forum. Find the remains of public buildings, temples, the sacred dwelling of the Vestal Virgins, and more in the Forum - the political, social, and religious core of the city. Learn stories of the political dramas that played out and the lives of people who lived 2,000+ years ago.

Wander through the Palatine Hill, where Romulus chose to found his new city that became home to the rich and powerful during the Republic.

Go back in time with the iconic Colosseum. Access the arena floor through the gladiators’ gate and imagine their experience stepping out under the gaze of thousands of noisy spectators. From the arena, look down into the dungeons where the gladiators prepared themselves beforehand and where wild animals were kept.

Tour was pleasant and guide was good. We were a group of about 30 people. It was easy to find the lead given the instructions. Being on the arena floor was fine, not a ton different than the upper floors. Definitely bring your own water as there's not a lot of shade.

Our guide was very cool and nice which makes the tour much more fun and comfortable. We went there in February so it wasn’t that full of people with was really great. The tour show you all the important stuff and its extremely nice to don’t have to wait in the lines. And if you want you could visit the Forum Romanum at the end of the tour for longer by your own

Good tour to get an overall glimpse at the different areas. I have never been before to the arena floor so that was a new experience. The guide led us at a fast pace, with great headsets to hear her from a distance. This is a great tour if you have limited time and if you don’t have an in-depth knowledge of Roman history.
