Full description

Avoid the long lines outside of some of Rome’s most popular ancient attractions with skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. Follow your guide who will explain the history of Rome and introduce you to some of the most notorious emperors.

Visit one of the most famous monuments in the world, the Colosseum, the immense amphitheater that was the largest ever built by the Roman Empire. Imagine the gladiatorial fights and public spectacles that took place in the arena.

Go to Palatine Hill, site of the foundation of Rome and settlement of the most important houses of emperors and kings. Located just feet from the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus, it is the centermost of the 7 hills of Rome.

Hear about the legends and history of Eternal Rome and stop on the Via Sacra to learn how everyday Roman citizens used to live. Enter the Temple of the emperor Julius Caesar, and explore the ruins of the Roman Forum, the center of all Roman government and public life.

Gute Tour. Unsere Führerin war extrem kompetent und hat uns das Colosseum, den Palatin Hügel und das Forum Romanum gezeigt. Die Führung ging knapp 3 Stunden und mein einziger Kritikpunkt wäre, dass die Informationen wirklich in einem sehr hohen Tempo kamen. Nur so alle 10min konnte man mal eine Frage stellen. Nach drei Stunden konnte ich deswegen nicht mehr wirklich viel aufnehmen, aber trotzdem habe ich viel gelernt und es hat sich insgesamt gelohnt.

It was an incredibly entertaining and informative tour of the Colosseum and surrounds which gave us a great insight into what went on during the whole history of the area and how this amazing building came to be. Special thanks to our tour guide who I unfortunately can't remember the name of (53 was the flag number!) but she was so full of energy and entertaining and it really helped to keep us all engaged.
