Could there be a better way to learn about history in Rome than taking a wander through the streets with a local? Didn't think so! Wander through ancient Rome with an expert local licensed guide on this Rome city tour that is factual and fun both at the same time!
You'll meet your local licensed guide, an expert in archaeology and history and head to the Colosseum right away, bypassing the hassle of lining up as you enter straight into this infamous international treasure.
Wander through the Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre ever made by the Romans, and admire this vast structure that could seat more than 50,000 people. Climb up to the second tier and marvel at the arena where the gladiators fought for their lives and where all kinds of Rome events took place. Learn about its fascinating history before continuing the walking tour of Rome to the Roman Forum. Once the political and religious center of ancient Rome, the Forum’s origins date back to the 7th century BC. With your local guide, you'll bring history to life and gain a fresh perspective on these famous places, which will make your experience far more unique than that of the thousands of others of travellers that visit these ruins each day.
During this Rome tour, you will start to understand the life of the ancient Romans as you admire the imposing Arch of Constantine. You will be able to imagine those gloriously epic parades, brought to life through the words of your guide. Together, we will enter the Roman Forum, the beating heart of the ancient city and visit the Forum’s most important buildings and temples, including: the Temple of Augustus where the funeral of Julius Caesar took place, the Via Sacra (Holy Road) which is the most important road in Rome, the Curia, the meeting place of the Roman Senate.
We will admire the imposing Basilicas where the ancient court once was, imagining judges, criminals and lawyers debating and yelling at one another!
Exiting the Forum, we’ll say goodbye here – but if you’re in the mood for more Rome our guide can give you some recommendations
