Full description

Visit the most important sites of ancient Rome on this 3-hour guided tour. Skip the lines waiting to enter the Colosseum with your priority access ticket, and enjoy a tour of the amphitheater and the Roman Forum with your knowledgeable guide. The construction of the Colosseum, the largest amphitheater of the Roman Empire, began in 72 A.D. and was designed to change the relationship between those in power and the Roman people. Learn about the incredible engineering techniques that allowed ancient Romans to complete this massive structure. Entertainment and other distractions were offered to the populace for free. The events included gladiator fights and hunting simulations involving ferocious and exotic animals. The capacity of the Colosseum is estimated at around 70,000. The amphitheater was often filled to capacity for shows that became occasions to impress and control the people through an astonishing display of special effects.

We had a fun, great and informative tour with our English/German speaking guide Francesco, who made our tour of the Colosseum something special with his travel experience, knowledge and empathy! Unfortunately, I have to deduct one point because we had booked a German tour and got an English one with German inputs. But all in all a super informative tour and above all you can reach people personally for questions! Thanks for the nice memory! Regina & Christian from Austria

Francesca was fantastic, a true font of knowledge. A great tour.

The government suddenly decided that everything should be open to all during this week, Cultural Week, so our Skip the Line tickets did not work which was annoying. Francesca did her best and got us into the Forum as quickly as she could but the queue fir the Colisseum was painful.

A great experience enhanced by the wonderful guide.

We had booked our guide not knowing what to expect and would recommend this service to anyone. We were quite lucky in that there was only one other person on our tour (it was first thing in the morning) so it was as if we had a private tour. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, spoke clearly and loud enough for us to hear. We moved around and covered quite an it if ground, all the while learning a ton about the people, history, and architecture. I would highly recommend this for anyone as it was a perfect t piece of our visit to Rome.
