Experience description

Beginning atop Colle Oppio (Opium Hill) for stunning panoramic views of the Italian capital, you’ll proceed to the Colosseum, where your guide will help you skip to the front of the queue and find your headsets. You’ll hear the horrific but true stories of gladiator combat, executions and epic mock sea-battles that took place in this gigantic amphitheatre for the bloodthirsty entertainment of Roman citizens.

En-route to Palatine Hill, where according to legend Romulus and Remus were found by the wolf that saved them, you’ll stop at the Arch of Constantine. From the hill you’ll be able to see the Circus Maximus, scene of thrilling chariot races, and the Forum, the centre of Roman civic life for centuries. The tour concludes along Sacred Way, the pathway for celebrations and triumphal processions, and the temple where Caesar was cremated. Packed with fascinating facts and gruesome tales, this tour is a great introduction to Rome’s opulent past.

Lindsey and Colin

Our guide was great and we loved this visit!

Kristine and Peter

Overall it was a good experience. We didn't feel like we had enough time in the Coliseum, we spent a lot of time waiting for people instead of enjoying the site. Our guide was good, but seemed to say the same facts over and over again. I wanted more stories about the history.

Kate and Anthony

Our tour guy was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. His knowledge of little trivial facts about Roman history was impressive as well. My wife and I had a great time and would highly recommend.
