You might think 3 hours is long, but you don't notice it. We were there in May and the weather was great, sunny, but not hot. Do bring sunglasses and a hat. When booking the tour they do advice you to bring your own water...More
Your tour begins near Oppian Hill, from which you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum. On arrival at the world wonder, you’ll avoid long lines with your fast-track pass and head straight inside the Colosseum.
Travel back 2,000 years as your guide tells stories of gladiator battles, bloody animal fights, and executions in front of 50,000-strong crowds of spectators.
If you’ve opted to upgrade your experience, you’ll then visit the arena floor and subterranean chambers, which are usually closed to the general public. Visit cells in which criminals and wild animals were kept, and follow in the footsteps of Roman gladiators in the arena.
After ample time at the ancient landmark, you’ll continue to the Roman Forum via Via Sacra. The sprawling site has minimal signage, but your guide takes you to the highlights and gives you the inside scoop.
Learn about the historical significance of the House of the Vestal Virgins and the Temple of Julius Caesar before concluding your tour with sweeping city views atop Palatine Hill.
