What You Can Expect

After hotel pickup in central Rome, your tour begins at the Colosseum, where you'll skip the entrance line.

Receive a headset so you can hear the commentary from your guide, who shares plenty of information about Ancient Rome as you journey through its past. While you explore the Colosseum, the largest amphitheater built by the Romans, try to imagine the scene of screaming spectators and gladiators in battle down on the arena floor.

Next, head to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome, once the foundation of the city and location of emperors' homes. Hear more about the history of the Eternal City while walking along the original path of Rome, Via Sacra, the main road that citizens used to access the Roman Forum and its buildings, which were the center of government and public life.

Your tour ends at Via dei Fori Imperiali, not far from the Colosseum metro stop and Piazza Venezia.
