Enjoy seeing the Colosseum from the special access of the Arena floor and walk in the footsteps of gladiators, before exploring Ancient Rome in the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
Feel like a gladiator when you walk on the Colosseum Arena floor...
The amphitheater, which was built by emperor Vespasian and completed by his son Titus, is one of the seven wonders of the world, and we want to give you a complete understanding of its history as well as the best group tour experience possible. You and your small group will skip the lines and enter through the special group entrance which leads directly onto the arena floor where gladiators fought and died centuries ago. We will walk around the colossal structure where ancient Romans used to cheer on their heroes, gamble and marvel at the exotic animals from all parts of the enormous Roman Empire. Your expert guide will also take you to the Roman Forum. The heart and soul of the ancient city, many of its most important temples and political buildings can still be seen today. Entering near the Senate House the group will continue past the law courts, triumphal arches and beautiful Temples, including the famed temple of Julius Caesar where his ashes were laid to rest. We will climb the gentle slopes of the Palatine Hill where rich Romans and emperors lived. Under the umbrella pines, which scatter the landscape, we will explore the palace of the emperors, home of the most powerful people in the ancient world. You will learn more about the lives of these great (and occasionally quite mad) men, visiting the stately dining rooms and serene gardens, getting an idea of the unbelievable luxury that they would have lived in.
