Ancient City/Colosseum Walk (3 hrs) with Archaeologists or Historians
Small Groups 2 to 8 people. Includes skip the line entrance tickets.
Discover the glory of ancient Rome in all its splendor: the Colosseum and the ruins of temples, palaces and halls of state in the Ancient City come to life in the company of one of our enthusiastic scholar-guides.
On this 3-hour walk we enter the Colosseum and learn about its origin, architecture and what happened to its missing pieces. Here you will hear about the intriguing and terrifying events which took place inside the famous arena, where human beings were slaughtered by wild beasts before raving audiences.
Explore the heart of the Ancient City, walking amongst excavations that have uncovered one of the most astounding archaeological sites in the world, twenty feet below present day Rome. Travel back in time almost 3,000 years, into the trades and scams of the Roman Forum. Visiting the ancient markets and spellbinding temples, you will walk in the footsteps of Julius Ceasar, come to the site of his memorial and learn where and why he was murdered.
The Palatine Hill, just south of the Forum, is both the oldest inhabited area of the city (settled in the iron age when Rome was little more than a swampy patch of land) and the site of crumbling emperor's palaces, reaching the height of opulence under the reign of Domitian. Enjoy the enchanting ruins in their lush setting, allow yourself to be enveloped by the bewitching atmosphere of a lost world: that of Rome's birthplace.
