This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

Explore the symbolic monument of Rome, whose unmistakable profile stands out against the city: the Colosseum!

You will travel back in the time of 2000 years to discover the secrets of the gladiators, the bloody battles against wild beasts and the macabre executions that the ancient Romans thrilled crowded in the stands.

You will avoid the long queues at the entrance with our skip-the-line tickets and, thanks to the vision of graphic reconstructions and 3D models, our guide will immerse you in the spectacular atmosphere of the largest Roman amphitheater.

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes

Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

Like the emperors who returned triumphant and victorious from bloody battles, we will then travel along the ancient Via Sacra and admire the triumphal arches of Constantine, Titus and Septimius Severus, revealing the stories and curiosities hidden in their marvelous reliefs.

Once in the Roman Forum, the hub of business and politics in ancient Rome where the fate of the whole world was decided, you can admire the fascinating ruins of majestic temples (such as the imposing columns of the Temple of Saturn and the altar where the body of the great Julius Caesar) and to see how they should have appeared at the time of the emperors, discovering the mysteries and the daily life of the Vestal Virgin priestesses, of the powerful senators and ordinary citizens.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

Finally we will go up to the Palatine Hill, the first of the 7 Hills, where the Eternal City was founded and the story began: from the terrace on the hill you will admire the most spectacular panorama of Rome, and a photo is a must!
