This tour is a journey through ancient Rome, covering the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Capitoline Hill. This private walking tour serves as a window into the time when Rome was the center of the world and emperors ruled the land.

Visit the remarkable Roman Forum, the central area around which ancient Rome developed. The site of political, religious, and commercial life in the ancient city, the Forum's monuments were partially buried under debris during the Middle Ages. Under the Napoleonic regime, archaeologists began the clearing of the area, which was not fully excavated until the early 20th century. The Via Sacra, a processional way, crosses the Forum and links it with the Colosseum.

The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, is the largest amphitheater built in the Roman Empire with seating for 50,000. With 76 numbered entrances, marble seats, and subterranean passages, this arena is where Emperors and wealthy citizens staged the deadly gladiatorial and wild animal fights.

Of course, you'll also want to see Capitoline Hill, on the opposite side of the Forum from the Colosseum. One of the most famous and highest of the seven hills of Rome, the Capitoline was the site of many famous events in Roman history.
