Full description
Visit the oldest archaeological museum in the world for a chance to travel in time back to the origins of Rome and the glorious past of the Eternal City. On this 2.5-hour tour you’ll meet ancient gods and emperors, heroes and senators, philosophers and generals created from white marble or shiny bronze. Climb the slope of the most famous hill in the world, the Capitoline Hill, and walk to the square designed by Michelangelo in the 16th century. See the Renaissance and Baroque buildings that are linked by an underground ancient structure that Romans called the Tabularium. This link features a spectacular collection of ancient Roman art. Look into the eyes of the emperors that made Rome great. Meet the she-wolf with Romulus and Remus. See the foundations of the largest Roman temple in the ancient world, dedicated to Jupiter. See the dying Galata, the seductive Venus, the impressive statue of the skinned-alive Marsyas and the wounded Queen of the Amazons. Admire the beautiful artifacts and learn about the personalities and the elegant everyday life of the Roman upper classes. Inscriptions give voice to ancient Romans of every social level, and your guide will bring them to life. You’ll be able to experience 12 centuries of glory, from the foundation of Rome to the fall of the Empire.
