What you'll do
Avoid the large, standard tour group and immerse yourself with the Colosseum's 2,000-year history with this intimate semi-private tour. Once we're inside the Colosseum we'll walk 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 (Old 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. NOTE: We skip the long ticket lines, but must pass through security, generally a 5-10 minute wai
