What you'll do

This experience will begin by entering the Colosseum, walking the same path as Rome’s most famous Gladiators. Here we will bring to life this historic stadium by explaining the bloodthirsty fights and executions that happened for almost 500 years. It is our job here to make you feel like you've gone back in time and the stadium is back alive! After the Colosseum, we will begin the second part of the experience. We will walk up the Palatine Hill, the exact area where Rome was founded in 753BC. At the top of the Hill we will explore the Imperial Palace, walking through the astounding ruins which once homed Rome’s most iconic Emperor’s. Then we will walk to one of the most remarkable balconies in Rome, overlooking the Roman Forum. Allow my co-hosts and I to captivate, amaze and indulge you in the real soul of Rome! All of my bespoke experiences have been carefully thought our in order to ensure you go home with a smile on your face, but most of all, with my infectious love for the eternal city! Please beware: There is generally a break between the two tours. Security line can take between 5-15 minutes. This experience will be hosted by myself or one of my co-hosts.

Your hosts

I’m a foodie, a sports-fan and a history-buff from England. I first visited Rome whilst interrailing through Europe in the summer before I went to university - and instantly fell in love. It was then that I was introduced to the tourism industry, and I knew straight away that it was what I wanted to do in the future. I went back to England and studied at Bournemouth University where I graduated with a Business and Economics degree. During my time there I’d return to Rome during Easter and Summer to work in tourism, and to continue my studies of this wonderful, special city. In June 2019 Colin, Russ and I launched Carpe Diem Rome, which has been an amazing, life-changing experience for me - and I’d love for you to join me and be part of it!
