Itinerary

Details

The tour starts in front of the Colosseum with an explanation of its history and architecture. Then, the guide will take you into the Amphitheatre (you skip the line) and describe, with some anecdotes, the hard life of the gladiators and the gory games held in the arena. From one of its terraces, your guide will illustrate the Arch of Constantine and the other monuments around the Colosseum.

Once outside, the visit continues in the nearby Roman Forum, where some of the most fundamental monuments in the history of Rome can be seen, such as the Curia, the centre of the Roman Senate, temples including the funeral altar of Julius Caesar, the remains of the magnificent House and Temple of the Vestals, and the Arch of Titus, with decorations recalling the Jewish religion.

From here, the guide will take you up to the Palatine, the hill on which Romulus founded the city of Rome and which later became the site of the Imperial residences. Here it will be possible to see the impressive remains of one of the most important buildings, the Imperial Palace built by the Emperor Domitian, as well as the Imperial Family’s private stadium. This unforgettable visit concludes with a view over the Circus Maximum below, the first and largest circus in Ancient Rome used primarily for chariot racing.
