Full description
After meeting your guide, follow your guide into the historical sites of Ancient Rome. Benefit from a small group tour where your guide will focus all of their attention on your group's questions and preferences. Get priority access and walk through the same gate of the Colosseum as the gladiators used to when they arrived for upcoming battles. Stand on the same arena floor, look up at the crowds above and feel the power and history of the entire stadium looking down on you. Learn where the emperor would have been seated to watch the games and look down on the underground tunnels to imagine where director of games would have organized the entire day filled with wild beasts, elaborate hunts, executions, and gladiatorial fights. After you’ve soaked up the grandeur of the Colosseum, your guide will lead you to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Visit Rome's oldest area where daily life happened in the forum as the Emperors ruled over it all from their palaces on the Palatine Hill. Walk within the partially excavated halls of empirical palaces on the Palatine on your way down to the Roman Forum where you will stroll through the same streets as the ancient Roman citizens. Take in the splendor of sites such as the Temple of Julius Caesar, the house of the Vestal Virgins, and the Temple of Antonino and Faustina as you journey into the past. Get the most out of this tour of Ancient Rome with a private guide. Have the flexibility and freedom to ask questions, learn more than in a group tour, and feel the personal touch that the guide can give when all of their attention is on your small group.
