What you'll do

The Colosseum is one of the seven wonders of the world, and I want to give you a complete understanding of its history as well as the best experience possible when visiting this ancient site. You will arrive at the designated meeting point with a couple of other guests to form a very small group. From here we will walk past all of the long lines in order to enter the main level of the stadium and see the arena floor where the gladiators fought for the excited crowds. We will then walk around the stadium where ancient Romans used to cheer on their heroes, gamble and marvel at the exotic animals from all parts of the enormous Roman Empire.
I will tell you all about the Colosseum and give you the opportunity to take photographs of your favorite highlights before we begin a short walk toward the Roman Forum. The forum was the heart and soul of the ancient city with temples and political buildings that are still standing today.
Next we will wind our way to the Palatine Hill where the emperors lived. Under the umbrella pines, we will explore the palace of the emperors, home of the most powerful people in the ancient world.
At the end of this tour, I will be more than willing to answer any questions you might have, as well as give advice on how best to see the city with many helpful tips, like where to find the best gelato!
