Itinerary

Details

The first part of this full day tour takes place in the most important archaeological site of Rome. You will skip the line at the Colosseum and the guide will lead you inside the Amphitheatre, describing the history of the monument, the hard life of the gladiators and the gory games held in the arena.

The visite continues in the nearby Roman Forum, where some of the most fundamental monuments in the history of Rome can be seen, the Curia, 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.

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.

At the end of the first part you have a break for lunch and rest a little it before meeting the guide again for the second part of the tour.

The afternoon walk starts in Piazza di Spagna, one of Rome’s most widely known places, where you can see the theatrical Spanish Steps of Trinità dei Monti and Bernini’s Barcaccia Fountain.

Continuing through the typically narrow streets you arrive at the magnificent Trevi Fountain, also known for the popular tradition of throwing a coin into the water to ensure you come back to the Eternal City.

The next stop is the Pantheon, one of the most impressive and prestigious monuments of Imperial Rome, which now contains the tombs of Raphael and the first two kings of Italy.

The tour ends in Piazza Navona with its stately palaces and churches and three splendid fountains, of which the Fountain of the Four Rivers in the centre is one of Bernini’s most famous works.
