Visit: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy
Explore the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill on a fun historic walking tour of Ancient Rome, with an expert guide.
Your group tour begins with a look inside Rome’s most popular site, the Colosseum. Made up of a combination of tufa, concrete and marble, it was the largest Roman arena ever built, with the capacity to seat as many people as a modern baseball stadium. Despite its immense size, nothing was overlooked, and everything functioned like a well-oiled machine. From allocated seating, quick exits, trap doors, underground tunnels and its own sewer system, the Romans thought of everything when designing this incredible structure. Hear about its rise and fall, its neglect, and how it was used as a quarry and storage facility before becoming a world heritage site.
The Roman Forum is the most interesting historical site in Rome, as well as one of the best-preserved assemblages of ancient ruins in Italy. This open-air museum is located steps away from the Colosseum and houses a vast collection of temples, monuments, arches, and churches.
The Palatine Hill:
Towering high above the Roman Forum is the very birth place of Rome, the Palatine Hill. This layer cake of Republican houses and Imperial palaces was also the abode of Rome’s legendary founder Romulus.
