Colosseum Tour

Start the Tour of the Rome Colosseum admiring the Arch of Constantine, then move onto the massive Colosseo. Here, fights between gladiators and beasts took place for the pleasure of bloodthirsty Roman Emperors. Upwards of 50,000 spectators would gather beneath awnings to witness the cruel battles unfold. Many events took place in this grand arena, but we will leave the details to our guide!

Rome Forum and the Sacred Way

After visiting the Colosseum, pass through the Roman Forum, in a word, the ancient marketplace where day-to-day life continued unabated for centuries. The rich archaeological history of the site now attracts upwards of 4.5 million sightseers a year. Many a triumphal procession, public speech, gladiatorial march, and political campaign run in its surroundings.

Listen to the tales of your guide as they recount stories of Julius Caesar. He orchestrated the construction in 46 B.C., while other Emperors continued developing the space through AD 608. Then take in the Sacred Way, the route of victorious generals as they returned from battle in triumph.

The Monuments of the Rome Forum

One of the most striking features of the Colosseum tour is this Temple of Castor and Pollux. Incredibly, three 40-foot high Corinthian columns reach into the sky. The Temple of Antonius and Faustina is one of the few structures maintaining much of its original form. On the other hand, the enormous Basilica of Maxentius preserves its impressive stature. Finally, the Arch of Titus is a fine introduction to the panoramic hill of the Palatine.

Palatine

The Palatine is the panoramic hill where, according to ancient legend, Romulus founded Rome in 753 B.C. Following his actions, the Emperors built their opulent homes for the rest of the civilization to enjoy. Following your private guide during this Colosseum tour, you will bring more than two millennia of history to life.
