Full description

Walk where the Roman senate walked, see where the gladiators fought, and stand where the citizens welcomed the Roman soldiers after successful military campaigns on this walking tour. Discover the 2000-year history of the Colosseum with your local guide. After meeting your guide, visit the Colosseum, one of the largest structures of the ancient world. Hear about its history and unlock fascinating stories about its design and construction, political benefit, and the games and battles that occurred.

Then, head over to the Imperial Roman Forum, where your guide will bring to life the mythology, popular celebrations, and gods of ancient Rome. Learn how the pagan holiday Saturnalia influenced the unfolding of Christmas on the 25th of December today.

Also housed in the Forum is the Lapis Niger (Latin for "black stone"), the most ancient Latin text ever discovered. Listen to the story of this text before exploring the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, the six young women taken from aristocratic families to serve as virgin priests of Vesta.
