This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

Revel in exquisite antiquity as your guide dazzles you with tales from the Roman Empire on this afternoon tour of the Colosseum. This carefully crafted itinerary also covers the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill – without waiting in any lines - to give you a complete perspective on one of the most important civilizations in history.

If you truly want to immerse yourself into the Eternal City’s 2500+ years of intriguing history, there is no better place to start than the Colosseum. The most spectacular edifice of Ancient Rome still in existence, this immortal amphitheater has a past filled with equal parts gore and glory – just like the Roman Empire itself. Over time, the boundary of history and legend may have been blurred out, but your guide will help you debunk the myths and shock you with stories even more jaw-dropping the ones you’ve seen played out on the silver screen. From wicked emperors to gruesome gladiator fights, we’ll delve right into the excitement from the get go!

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Pass By: Arco di Costantino, Via di San Gregorio, 00186 Rome Italy

Every inch of this massive triumphal arch is covered by carvings and sculptures, making it a veritable billboard, made to advertise the achievements of Constantine in the Battle of the Milvian Bridge. Curiously, much of its decoration was cobbled together from monuments built by earlier emperors, more specifically those of Trajan, Hadrian and Marcus Aurelius. These were all men that Constantine considered to have been the great rulers of the 2nd century AD and with whom he most wanted to be associated.

Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

This was once the central hub of the sprawling empire, where the early Romans would mix and mingle throughout its glory days. As you gaze upon towering triumphal arches and the imposing remnants of senate houses and hallowed temples, you’ll be mesmerized by the stories that have transpired on this very ground. Get the inside scoop on Marc Antony and Cleopatra’s epic love story and hear the thrilling tale of the conspiracy that cost Julius Caesar his life – but also learn how the great Roman Empire slowly began to crumble towards its dramatic demise in 500 AD.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

After our in-depth guided Colosseum tour, we'll take a short hike over to the adjacent Palatine Hill – the very birthplace of Rome. It was upon this grassy summit that a small hillside village took its first faltering steps towards becoming the largest Empire ever known to man. But what drove the first settlers to make their home here of all places? And how did the twins Romulus and Remus and their adoptive wolf mother fit into the complex equation? Your tour guide will straighten out those question marks (and many more!) as you ponder amongst scattered ruins on the most notable of Rome’s seven hills.

Duration: 30 minutes

Pass By: What a Life Tours, Via Santamaura, 14B, 00192 Roma RM, Italy
