Coliseum & Ancient Rome

Rome is like an onion: it has many layers (do you remember Shrek?): Modern, Baroque, Renaissance, Christian and Ancient… Follow us in this wonderful tour to discover all of them!

The half day tour covers the most imposing Roman monuments: the Coliseum, the Roman forum, the Palatine Hill, which was the Emperor’s residence, the Capitol Hill square, designed by Michelangelo, and a great view of the Vittoriano, our Altar of Nation.

We will skip the lines and visit the Flavian Amphitheater (this is the Coliseum’s real name!), which was an arena for gladiator’s contests and public spectacles. We will admire the incredible engineering genius of the romans and learn about the mad emperors that performed in the arena as gladiators.

From the Arch of Titus we will walk through the heart of the Ancient city, the Roman Forum, where we will bring back to life the old memories of a lost world, from the assassination of Julius Caesar to fascinating details of daily life in ancient Rome. We will see the sight where the body of Caesar was cremated, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, the “Curia Julia” (Senate House), the Basilica Aemilia, the Temple of Saturn, then walk on the Via Sacra, where legions and emperors once marched during the triumphal parades. We will then visit the Palatine hill, a large open-air museum with the ruins of the emperors’ palaces and where, according to the legend, Romulus founded the city in 753 BC.

Through the Arch of Septimius Severus and up to the high steps we will reach the Capitol Hill’s main square (Campidoglio) that Michelangelo transformed from pagan to papal. From here we could visit the famous complex of the Capitoline Museums… but that is another tour!
