The Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill are the most important ancient sites in the city, but visiting on your own can be overwhelming. With this tour, take in the highlights of these three fascinating sites with an expert guide in a smaller, personal group. This tour also includes special, limited access to the arena floor. Stand in the centre of the Colosseum and relive the ancient battles, and imagine the roaring crowds and the glory of the empire. Explore Palatine Hill, where Emperors built their palaces and the elites luxuriated in their villas - remains of which you can see all around you. Learn the histories of the great names who lived here, as your guide rebuilds the neighbourhoods around you. The Roman Forum is the heart of all Ancient Rome. Here’s where the day to day hustle and bustle happened, and the work of running the world’s largest empire really took place. Weave amongst the enormous ruins, and discover the real lives of every Roman, from the city’s mythical founders to famous senators to humble market stall keepers. This is the best way to discover Rome.
