1. Colosseum, Ancient Rome, Small Group Tour, Virtual Reality
This 3-hour adventure begins at the Victor Emanuel Monument for a spectacular view overlooking the heart of Ancient Rome. With things in perspective, proceed down to the excavation site of the Roman Forum to admire the remarkably intact remains of temples, basilicas, government buildings, and entertainment centers. Stroll along the same cobblestone roads where heated discussions between toga-clad senators of the Curia took place, and view the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Visit the underground prison where Saints Peter and Paul were interned, and see the magnificent Arch of Constantine, site of colorful victory parades by Roman soldiers. Next, go to the Colosseum and skip the long lines to get an up-close look at a triumph of ancient engineering. Your guide will paint a vivid picture of the blood and carnage of the gladiatorial fights that took place within imperial Rome’s greatest arena.
