Description

Decipher the ruins of Ancient Rome with an expert art historian—discovering the origins of an empire at the Palatine Hill, the growth of democracy at the Roman Forum, and the gore of gladiators in the Colosseum. In a small group, you can engage and interact with your expert guide easily.

Your tour starts at the Colosseum, where you bypass ticket lines with pre-reserved Skip-the-Line passes. Your guide leads you inside, up a set of stairs and through the arches for your first glimpse of the world's most iconic sporting ground.

Explore the first and second levels, hearing stories of the gladiators that fought here by choice or otherwise, of the emperors who decided their fate, and of the captive audience whose graffiti still marks the walls today. The Colosseum had more uses as well, some of which you will hardly believe – your guide has all the details.

Your experience continues at the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Here, you can appreciate having an art historian for a guide, because as you wander the streets they can make sense of the ruins for you—pointing out the subtle differences that reveal whether the structure is a moneylender’s shop, public bath, or any number of common ancient structures.

Learn what life was like in the days of Caesar, Nero and Hadrian, and how Roman society functioned. Discover the gardens of the first-ever nuns – the Vestal Virgins – then climb the slope to see the palaces of the Palatine Hill, built on the grounds where Romulus and Remus were discovered by the she-wolf. After an incredible day of making ancient history come to life, part from your group feeling more in touch with the beautiful ruins of Rome.
