Full description
Start your adventure in Rome with skip-the-line access to the deadly Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic structures. With the small group guided tour, you'll have an expert in history and archaeology at hand. Your tour guide will fill the arena with stories of Caesar and Nero, taking you on a journey of an empire beginning in 753 BC. Next, travel a little further back to the very beginning as you explore Palatine Hill, the legendary site where the warring brothers Remus and Romulus fought. This is where Romulus founded the settlement that would eventually become Rome as we think of it today. The next stop will be at the impressive Roman Forum, the heart of the Roman Republic that inspired many modern democracies. Home to a bustling marketplace and ruled by moneylenders and shopkeepers, this was Rome at its finest. Here politicians held rallies before elections, soldiers marched triumphantly down the Via Sacra, and the Vestal Virgins decided if men lived or died.

A huge thank you to Catalina Barbuceano for showing us the historical riches of the Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. Catalina has a lot of humor and she was able to share the stories of Romes with us in remarkable French. We will return with pleasure for other visits

The guide explained everything very clearly and pointed out small details to us. at the same time there was enough time to take pictures in peace.
