Description

Rome, a treasure chest of artistic magnificence, filled with ruins, views, fountains...  Wondering what the best way to see Rome is? Unsure about what to visit first, and what tours to take? Our Private Historical Rome and Colosseum Tour solves all dilemmas! Carefully crafted to offer an insider’s view of Rome’s fascinating historical city center, including all main landmarks and a memorable visit to the Colosseum, this exclusive tour is no doubt the best way to see Rome!

Meet your private guide, a knowledgeable and charismatic expert, and get ready to explore. Starting with a promenade through the centro storico, the historic center, is certainly the best way to see Rome and feel its lively vibes. Roaming along cobble-paved alleys and through airy piazzas you will have the opportunity to discover the Spanish Steps, gorgeous Trevi Fountain, inspiring Pantheon and Italian Parliament Building. Walk to bustling Piazza Venezia and see the imposing Altare della Patria, and follow your guide down the famed Roman Forum mile, which leads to the Colosseum.

Also called Anfiteatro Flavio, i.e. Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum is a giant amphitheatre built in Rome during the Flavian empire. Erected between 70 and 72 BC, under the reign of Vespasian it lies on what used to be part of the grounds of Nero’s Golden House. At that time there was an artificial lake here, which was drained to build the Colosseum.

Follow your guide inside: access will be easy and hassle-free thanks to  exclusive priority entrance tickets. Once inside learn all about this amazing theatre’s features, first and foremost that unlike most other ancient amphitheatres - which used to be built along some sort of hillside to be sure they coils stand up! - the Colosseum is a freestanding structure where stone and concrete are held together by a complex system of vaults...amazing ancient architecture!!! Hear about the gladiators, who fought for rich prizes or their freedom, and see the dramatic tiers from which the crowds used to cheer.

After the visit follow your guide to the Roman Forum, and get ready to be surprised. Walking through this extensive park made of columns and ruins, your guide will be able to show you through that ancient fascinating world, the social, political and commercial life of the Roman empire. Among the other sights you will certainly enjoy seeing Titus’ arch, the temple of Saturn, Vespasian and Antoninus Pius, temples, basilicas and, above all, the public spaces which will lead you straight into the daily life and customs of 2000 years ago.
Offering the privilege and exclusivity of a private guide dedicated to your party only, including delicious Italian gelato, a walking tour of the city center and memorable visit to the Colosseum and Forum our Private Historical Rome and Colosseum Tour is the very best way to see Rome!
