Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill
This tour will allow you to discover the history of Rome from its origins to the Roman Empire. In the guided tour I will accompany you as an archaeologist and, as true explorers, we will discover the ruins of ancient Rome. Every single remnant, even the most apparently insignificant, contains within it a life telling us a story about ancient times.
The tour will start from the symbol of Rome, the Colosseum!
Gladiator games, beast hunts and naumachias, the famous naval battles… will be some of the topics covered in the amphitheatre tour! This is a tour suitable for those who want to take a wider look at the history, customs and traditions of the Romans, one who is not limited to the usual standard notions. In fact, there will be tales, anecdotes, secrets and scandals of the emperors!
The second part of the tour will be dedicated to visiting the Roman Forum, the centre of public, political and religious life in ancient Rome and will end on the Palatine hill, the place of foundation of Rome, where the emperor’s palace was sitting and from which it will be possible to take wonderful pictures, taking advantage of the view of the whole archaeological area and of part of the city.
