Description

Your small group tour will begin with the Colosseum — 1 of the 7 wonders of the world, a UNESCO site, and the longest-lasting cultural and social institution of roman history. You will be amazed by the reconstructions of the fancy armor, helmets, gladiators, fighters, and weapons which were designed to impress the audience. Your visit to Palatine Hill means re-visiting the origins of this eternal city. The south-western corner of the hill was the place where wooden huts of the first Romans were found. According to myth, this was also the venue where the two twins Romulus and Remus, abandoned by their mother, were found and raised by the she-wolf. The hill still preserves the archaeological remains of many significant Ancient buildings, which you will discover with your guide. Finally, you will discover the Roman Forum, the main square in the downtown of Ancient Rome. It is considered that this was a gathering place for various activities with banks, shopping malls, and religious buildings. It was also the center of political power and the administration of justice. This famous square was the location of famous speeches of some of the most influential personalities, including the speech of Mark Antony regarding Julius Caesar.

So you will meet your guide at 8am in order to avoid the crowds but be aware there will be a waiting time before entering the colosseum.
