What you'll do

Avoid the large, standard group tour and immerse yourself in the Colosseum's 2,000-year history with this intimate semi-private tour.

We'll skip the long ticket lines and walk in the same steps of gladiators, emperors, and doomed prisoners. Bloodthirsty Romans gathered in the in this ancient stadium to watch deadly sports and executions, and I'll explain every gory detail.

We'll spend about 90 minutes exploring the Colosseum's 1st and 2nd levels, while also allowing you free time for photos and self-exploration.

Following the Colosseum, we'll make our way to the Roman Forum (Ancient City) and Palatine Hill (Cesar's Palace) where we'll again enjoy skip the line access.

Surrounded by picturesque ruins we'll visit ancient palaces, temples, tombs, the House of the Vestal Virgins, and the Senate house before finishing the tour at the tomb of Julius Cesare.

This 3-hour tour concludes in the center of Rome's ancient ruins, which are also conveniently located in modern Rome's city center; leaving easy access to local restaurants, cafes, shopping, and public transportation options.

NOTES:
-We skip the long ticket lines, but must pass through security, generally a 5-10 minute wait.

Originally from the United States, I've been lucky enough to call Rome home for the past 11 years!

I first came to Rome to study its incredible history, but Italy's charm, excitement, and food have kept me here for over a decade.

In addition to sharing the incredible 3,000 year history of Rome during the tour, I'm equally excited to share my top picks for pizza, pasta, gelato, and all things delicious in Rome.

Along with my officially licensed, English speaking co-hosts, we'll take care of all reservations so your visit to Rome's greatest sites includes a fun and informative tour while skipping the long lines.

Don't hesitate to contact me for any help planning your trip to Italy!

Andrea was a phenomenonal guide, our children fell in love with her instantly, and were upset when we had to part. She was truly fanatic, helped us with the children, and took our family photos. We had THE best guide in Rome.

This tour was so great! And especially loved how the guides intentionally keep the group small as compared to some of the 50 person groups we saw. Andres was such an informative guide and incredibly knowledgeable! Definitely worth the value versus trying to navigate and understand the colosseum/Roman forum on your own. Would definitely recommend this tour and it was the highlight of our trip!

The whole tour was great. Andre was a super host. Had loads of knowledge and made sure we were all involved and following along. I'd recommend to anyone who wants to learn a lot about the Coleseum and have fun doing it.
