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.

Excellent tour!! Really enjoyed getting to hear the history while touring the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. It was a great way to get an idea of what it was like back during the Roman times which made the whole experience more meaningful and special. Our guide was incredible and obviously knew her history. Would highly recommend this tour!

A guided tour like this is a must for the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Forum. With so much history to learn, this tour really helps break it down into just a few hours for you to take it all in. This is my second time taking a tour of the Colosseum and Forum and I still came out with new and fun interesting facts. We really enjoyed this tour and we loved our tour guide, Francesca! She helped explain things so clearly and kept us engaged the whole time.

Claudia was fantastic from start to finish. Would highly recommend doing one of these tours as there is so much information that you would never find out by simply walking around the areas! You are free to ask questions and Claudia was extremely knowledgeable. The tour was just over 3 hours and you finish inside the forum so you are still free to go back and walk around the area as you please. Overall a great way to kick off a Rome holiday!
