Description

Discover the origin and the soul of Rome, visiting the very site of Rome at Emperors’ ages, the Roman Forum and take a special visit with exclusive underground entrance (and skip the line) to the Colosseum, Rome’s most famous landmark and unmissable sight, in the comfort of a very small group tour, 12 people max, guided by an expert art and culture guide.  

The awe-inspiring Colosseum, commissioned by Vespasian in 72 B.C. was finished in 80 A.C by Titus. Just imagine: the inauguration lasted a hundred days! With room for over 70,000 spectators, and free seating for all,this amazing venue hosted thrilling popular events. Take an authentic insider’s view of its majestic architecture following your small group tour guide along the tiers, learn about the animals and gladiators and get to see the special -closed to the mail public – underground spaces, a kind of “behind the scene” visit where you’ll get to see the little cells where gladiators warmed up before the fight, the cages of animals and the spectacular rooms where wood elevator would make fighters literally jump up on the Arena floor from the underground (we are talking about 2000 years ago.. no electricity, just man power.)  Get to know the details of its enthralling brutal history: what mainly excited the crowds were the fights between gladiators, frequently slaves, criminals or prisoners of war fighting for rich prizes or their freedom.

Then enjoy a beautiful walk into the Roman Forum, the arch of Titus, the temple of Saturn, Vespasian and Antoninus Pius are just some of the highlights.. an immense display of evocative ruins which used to be the social, political and commercial hub of the Roman empire and as you wonder through this impressive district of temples, basilicas and vibrant public spaces, immerse yourselves in the 2000 ago daily life and customs life of the biggest, powerful emperor of all times, learning the history of its fast rise and faster fall.  

Our tour will end with a climb up to the – according to legend – founding spot of Rome, the Palatine hill where Romulus decided to build his Palace (a word coming from Palatine, in fact).

You will enjoy a spectacular last view of the forums and Rome and say bye, but you are free to continue your tour visiting some other sites available on this hill, like the Domus (houses) of Augustus and Nero (visits and tickets available on request).
