About this tour
Embark on a journey through time. Transport your mind to an era whose remnants still surround you to this very day. Learn about the incredible history and horrors of the Eternal City as you explore the centre of Ancient Rome.
It is hard to imagine what these iconic landmarks would have looked like in their prime, but with priority entrance to the archaeological site and complimentary headsets, you will gain a better understanding of the area with the help from your experienced and professional guide.
Your guided ‘Passeggiata’ will include a visit to:
The Colosseum is the world’s largest amphitheatre, built by the Romans in 80 AD. More than 50,000 people would have gathered here to watch gladiatorial contests and many other kinds of public spectacles. Known also as the Flavian, its name was appropriately given as it was built on the site where once stood a 115-foot-tall bronze statue of the emperor Colossus of Nero.
Whilst visiting this giant amphitheatre, take some time to consider the discrimination in Roman society and the fate of the fighters in the gruesome blood sport at the gladiator’s playground.
– Roman forum
In its heyday, the Roman Forum was the very heart of the ancient world, crowded with people from all corners of the empire. From elections, public speeches, gladiator matches, and even criminal trials, it was from this very location that the Romans transformed civilisation.
Your guided ‘Passeggiata’ will include a visit to;
– Palatine Hill
It is thought that this area is where it all began. In Rome there is a very fine line between myth and historical fact. According to Roman mythology, twin brothers Remus and Romulus were abandoned by their parents on the hill and discovered and nursed by a wolf before being found by a shepherd.
Legend has it that when they became adults they decided to build a city where the wolf had found them. After quarrelling about the location, Remus was said to have been murdered by his brother, thus leaving Romulus as the founder of the city to which he gave his name. Over a hundred years ago archaeologist Rodolfo Lanciani, excavated a site on the hill and uncovered the remains of an Iron Age settlement dating back to 900 BC giving evidence to the existence of the early founders of Rome.
