Full description

Walk in the footsteps of Roman emperors and citizens on a 2.5-hour tour of Ancient Rome, with VIP entrance to the Roman Forum and Colosseum, at the end of your tour.  Your guided tour will begin at Piazza Venezia and introduce the Campidoglio (the House of the Mayor). Access the Roman Forum through the dedicated VIP entrance as soon as you arrive. Here you can enjoy breath-taking views over the Roman Forum.  Walk along the Via Sacra (Sacred Road) and immerse yourself in Roman history. The main path through the Roman Forum, the Sacred Road once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. Head to the Temple, which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Visitors from around the world still leave flowers and candles at the site to this day.  Before reaching the Colosseum, you will get a general overview of the Palatine Hill where legend has it Romulus founded the city of Rome. The hill looks down over the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus chariot-racing circuit. Once inside the Colosseum, your expert guide will teach you about the amphitheater's bloody past, with tales of gladiators, mock sea battles, and executions.

Very kindly they accepted me on a last minute sign up so I could enjoy it with my family. Our tour guide, Paolo, was outstanding, well prepared, attentive to all group needs.We enjoyed it very much.Families with small kids and strollers could have some difficulties along the way but is all worth it.

This is such an amazing tour. I am not a huge fan of tours as a general rule, but without an expert guide, it would have been impossible to know what I was looking at. Our guide was wonderful and provided a wealth of information. She was very knowledgeable about Roman history and had a very interesting style of delivery. It is a lot of walking and some stair climbing is involved - nothing major, but it would be good to let people know this in advance. On a really hot day, this would be better in the morning or evening.

The tour itself and tour guide was really good. The only issue was trying to find the meeting spot for the tour. We had trouble finding the meeting spot and almost missed the tour. It was quite a ways from where the actual tour began. We then had to walk back to the coliseum from the initial meeting place. It made no sense. A better idea would be to have the meeting spot by the coliseum since that's where it started.
