Full description

Explore Rome's iconic sights on a unique tour to the Colosseum and its arena floor, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill on a walking tour. Discover unseen facets of these famous Italian landmarks and learn about their rich history from your local guide.

Enjoy a guided visit of the Roman Forum. Find the remains of public buildings, temples, the sacred dwelling of the Vestal Virgins, and more in the Forum - the political, social, and religious core of the city. Learn stories of the political dramas that played out and the lives of people who lived 2,000+ years ago.

Wander through the Palatine Hill, where Romulus chose to found his new city that became home to the rich and powerful during the Republic.

Go back in time with the iconic Colosseum. Access the arena floor through the gladiators’ gate and imagine their experience stepping out under the gaze of thousands of noisy spectators. From the arena, look down into the dungeons where the gladiators prepared themselves beforehand and where wild animals were kept.

My husband and I booked a Spanish speaking tour by mistake. Neither of us speaks Spanish. It ended up being such a fun experience with a wonderful guide. he used pictures as he spoke and was so passionate about educating the group. Despite not knowing what was being said a lot of the time, we had a blast with our guide. Thank You!

The Spanish speaking guide was very relaxed, she knew a lot about each place and all the history! Attentive to everyone. The tour was incredible despite the January cold, we visited amazing places and also learned a lot from the explanation! It was a great class! With this ticket we could only go to the coliseum arena, we did not have access to the lower part, but it was already described at the time of purchase! If you are interested in going where the gladiators used to pass at the bottom, buy another ticket! In short, it was worth it! I recommend

Forum and Palatine Hill very well (many thanks to our guide), Colosseum a little disappointed, unavoidable no doubt but very very damaged by the successive dismantling operated by ..... the Catholic Church in its time .... A good also an idea of what mass tourism is (and again we were a bit off-peak....), its selfies and staging for Tik Tok.....
