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.

Our tour guide, Fabio, was really great! Full of knowledge and fun, he make the tour very informative and was so helpful in answering any questions. I would definitely recommend as it's great to mostly skip the queues and to see everything you need to see without getting overwhelmed by the scope of the area!

It was really amazing!! Our tour guide seemed very passionate and knowledgeable about the information. Keep in mind it gets hottt and there’s lots of walking. Walking for basically 3 hours straight, no where to really sit and not much shade. They’re are water fountains throughout to bring a water bottle to fill up. Also a bit tough with the baby stroller. We managed and it is doable, but lots of steps and rough terrain.

Knowledgeable guide, and since everyone got headphones, it was both easy to hear and to keep up, even if you stopped for a little extra to take a picture. Very smooth passages through entrance and search controls. Would have liked to have spent more time in the Colosseum and a little less on the Palatine and the Roman Forum, 3 hours is short to go through so much, and very far when the sun is blazing. Good with both toilet break and water / drink break. Definitely worth a guided tour, both to understand more of all the rocks and everything that historically happened here and to not miss anything during the visit
