Prepare for the activity
Please be at the meeting location 15 minutes before departure time. Late-comers won't be able to join the tour. Please note: the meeting point is not at the Colosseum. The tour commences on the platform directly in front of Trajan’s Column. Trajan’s Column is located on Via dei Fori Imperiali next to Piazza Venezia. When standing right in front and facing the Victor Emmanuel II Monument (a.k.a. the “Wedding Cake), it’s directly to the left across the street. Your tour coordinator will be waiting here wearing either a blue polo shirt or blue jacket with the City Wonders logo printed on it. Arriving by taxi: Ask the taxi driver to take you to Piazza Foro Traiano. You will see the roughly 30m high Trajan’s Column as you enter the Piazza, and the meeting point is up the steps on the platform next to it.Open in Google Maps ⟶
