ABOUT THIS TOUR
This is a time travel back to when Rome was the center of the known world. Discover the history of one of the world’s greatest empires. Explore one of the most visited and one of the most famous icons in the whole world – the Colosseum.
After the Colosseum tour, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill are next. The Roman Forum might not be as famous as the Coliseum, but it is very important place for the ancient Romans – from the Emperor to the senators and to the common people. Learn about the Roman religion, their temples, their markets, some strange rules and their day to day activities all inside the Roman Forum.
Then on to the Palatine Hill, this small hill is where they say Rome was founded by a man named Romulus, who was suckled by a She-Wolf. And more than that, see some very important races of Roman history atop this hill.
This is one complete ancient Rome experience all in 23 hours with your dynamic guide who is not only an expert in Roman history but is a great storyteller as well. With a great guide, history really comes alive!
Due to new protocols, this tour has been modified. Before we start as early at 8:30AM and stay inside the Colosseum as long as we wish to. Now the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill open at 10.35AM. A very limited number of visitors are allowed, we highly recommend that we book the tickets as soon as possible.
Now we are allowed around 45 minutes inside and with one route only we cannot explore the other parts of the amphitheater like before. The underground area can be visited with a private guide though tickets are very limited.
If you wish to have the chance to stand on the arena floor and enter through the Gladiators’ entry gate, then the entry tickets are available from 2PM onwards, no morning entry. This entry allows visitors 40 minutes inside the Colosseum.
We book the tickets as the Colosseum ticket office now requires the name and the license number of your private guide when booking the tickets for private tours.
