Avoid the long lines outside of some of Rome’s most popular ancient attractions and get skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. The tour is led by professional guides who will explain the history of Rome and introduce you to some of the most notorious Roman emperors. Included with your privileged priority entrance to the archeological areas are headsets that will help you to hear your guide better. You will 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. You will also 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.

We were very lucky and there were only four of us. Patrizia our guide was really nice and explained everything very well and understandably. I can highly recommend the tour with a guide because there is just so much to explain that is not written on any sign or something.

Excellent tour led by our guide Fabio, and this despite the disruptions related to the G20 which was held in Rome. The Forum and the Palatine were closed that day, reserved for official visits. Fabio nevertheless took the time and the trouble to give us as much information as possible from Via Dei Fori Imperiali. The whole visit was interesting, entertaining and of high quality. We were a family, two adults and two teenagers. I recommend !

Superb experience with our French speaking guide Fabio L. Fabio made us travel during these 3 hours to the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and lastly the masterpiece of the Colosseum. Impeccable organization with the distribution of audio equipment to better hear the guide. I highly recommend this activity. Fabio was very friendly and gave us plenty of explanations during the visit. We had a great time with my husband and our three children.
