Description

Fully immerse yourself in Ancient Rome on this half-day tour that breathes life into the ruins that dominate this city, as well as the emperors, gladiators, and slaves who dwelled - and fought - within them. Your adventure begins at the Colosseum; the Roman icon that has drawn visitors in their millions since it was built thousands of years ago. The Colosseum's enduring popularity is plain to see in the long lines of visitors that wait for hours under the hot Roman sun to enter, but with Skip the Line access you and your group of 25 people or fewer will sail past these queues and immediately begin exploring.

Your expert, English-speaking guide will not only lead you through these crumbling corridors but back through the ages; thrilling you with tales of the mock sea battles and gory executions that took place here, as well as the gladiatorial contests that drew thousands of spectators. With a personal headset ensuring you hear every word of your guide's enthralling commentary, it will be easy for you to imagine the Colosseum as it was - alive with energy and the roar of the excited crowd.

Follow your guide as they lead you from the Colosseum to the birthplace of Rome; Palatine Hill, where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf who raised them and where Romulus built a city in his own name. Take in views of Nero's Circus Maximus, where furious chariot races were held, and admire the beauty of the Roman Forum before you descend to explore it in the company of your guide.

Skip past the entry line and find yourself in the centre of Ancient Rome, where traders lined the paved street, triumphant generals marched on the Via Sacra to celebrate their victories, and politicians gave passionate public speeches. Your guide will weave the story of Ancient Rome into these ruins, allowing you to imagine the masses bustling past you to conduct their business as they would have thousands of years ago. Learn about the Vestal Virgins and pay your respects to Caesar at the temple where he was cremated, before returning to present-day Rome.

Our guide met us at the appointment spot, and it was a relief to skip the lines and begin our tour! We had a close up and personal tour of the Colosseum, although it was a very busy place with the many tours going on. Our knowledgeable guide kept us together, and gave thorough explanations of all we were seeing at the Colosseum , the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. We had a perfect day, and the experience was very educational. You had a sense of stepping back in time and a better understanding of life in the time of the Roman Empire. Wear good walking shoes!

This tour was great, our guide Massimo loves history, he is good story teller and I was not bored for not a second of 3 hours tim...e we spent with him. We took this tour 2years ago so I thought it would be more less the same, but it was absolutely different experience, new informations put in different way - so we did not waste our time. And I think , next time we are in Rome, maybe we will take this tour again . more

Adriana

This tour gave us a great opportunity to visit Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill for a short time. Colosseum is a famous to...urist destination but we didn't have to be in a long queue. The guide was very kind and knowledgeable about architecture and history. Rome is a brilliant city with a lot of sightseeing sites so I strongly recommend to join the tour. more
