The greatness, the glory and the bloody past of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum will be brought to life through tales of gladiators, emperors and infamous tyrants. Come with us and jump the queue! The tour includes:
The Colosseum: One of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering, where gladiators met in combat, and condemned prisoners fought off wild beasts (specifically brought from distant regions of the Roman Empire) in front of blood-thirsty crowds. Built by the Flavian Dynasty, commissioned by Emperor Vespasian in 69 AD and inaugurated by his son and successor, Titus in 80 AD with games that lasted 100 days and nights. A once in a lifetime experience, the Colosseum is a monument to raw, merciless power, without a doubt the most thrilling of Rome’s ancient sights.
The Palatine Hill: According to Roman mythology the twin brothers, Romulus and Remus were found on the Palatine Hill by the she-wolf who nursed and raised them. Legend holds that Romulus chose this site to build the city of Rome. With the development of Rome, due to its proximity to the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill became “The place to live”. It became the place where the powerful and wealthy built their homes. Emperor Augustus was born on the hill and chose to build his Palace on this spot. From the Palatine Hill you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Roman Forum.
The Roman Forum: Come and walk with us through the heart of the ancient city. The Forum was the marketplace of Rome and also the business district and civic centre. Try to imagine this busy and crowed place as the pulsing centre of a modern city. Here people would come to see the meetings of the orators, attend criminal trials and discuss internal politics or the latest military campaigns. A walk through the Forum will be like a time travel experience.
