What to Expect
Follow our tour into the Colosseum, the biggest amphitheater of the roman world, where you will discover the hard life of gladiators.
You will also visit the nearby Roman Forum the center of the ancient public life and its important buildings such as The Arch of Titus, constructed in 82 AD by the Roman Emperor Domitian to commemorate Titu’s victory, including the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD, the Curia, the center of the Roman Senate and the ruins of the magnificent House of the Vestal.
Then our tour guide will take you up to the Palatine, where, according to tradition, Romulus founded Rome in 754 BCE: you will see the remains of huts, that confirm the details of the legends.
Later the Palatine became the site of the imperial residences and you will see the ruins of the magnificent imperial palaces built by the Emperor Domitian.
The visit concludes with a view over the Stadium of Domitian, the Imperial Family’s private stadium.
• Roman Colosseum: The Roman Colosseum is the largest amphitheatre in the world. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in 70 AD, and was completed by his heir Titus. The Colosseum could hold, between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, and was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. The Colosseum is one of the most popular attractions in Rome  and is included among the “New 7 Wonders of the World”.
• The Roman Forum is a rectangular forum (plaza) surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings located between the Palatine and Capitoline Hills at the center of the city of Rome. It was for centuries the center of Roman public life: the site of triumphal processions and elections; the venue for public speeches,criminal trials, and gladiatorial matches; and the nucleus of commercial affairs. Here statues and monuments commemorated the city’s great men. It has been called the most celebrated meeting place in the world, and in all history. Today it attracts 4.5 million sightseers yearly.
• The Palatine Hill is the centermost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands 40 metres above the Forum Romanum, looking down upon it on one side, and upon the Circus Maximus on the other. According to Roman mythology, the Palatine Hill was the location of the cave, where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf Lupa that kept them alive. Rome has its origins on the Palatine. During the Empire (27 BC – 476 AD) several emperors resided there; in fact, the ruins of the palaces of Augustus, Tiberius and Domitian can still be seen. Augustus also built a temple to Apollo here.
