Experience Highlights

Rome. A city unlike any other, an almost infinite feast for the senses. And this three hour skip-the-lines guided tour is the perfect way to experience the ancient past of what was once the greatest empire on earth. You’ll be introduced to the three most iconic and important symbols of Rome’s past majesty and hubris: The Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. Each carries remarkable stories of power, politics, and excess. You will get to stand on the floor of the Colosseum, imagining the roar of the crowd, the clash of steel blades, and the wave of the emperor’s hand as he decides to let a bloodied combatant live or die. You will get to explore the Roman Forum, once the commercial and communal epicenter of Rome. Considered by many to be the heart of the ancient city, the Forum was once the largest meeting place in the world. And then you are off to Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome, and the place where Rome was originally founded in 753 BC.. Palatine Hill became the place where the Roman rich and famous lived large, building fabulous palaces and architectural monuments to the gods.

    We really Enjoyed the tour. the guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Although we had earphones he turned and faced us to inform us of all the interesting facts. this was enormously helpful especially to my husband who can't wear earphones because he is hard of hearing and wears 2 hearing aids . would definitely recommend your tours.
