What makes this tour special

On this three-hour tour, you will time travel back 2,000 years and visit sites that were of significance to the Roman Empire and do as the Romans do. 

Walk through the Roman Forum where you will come across remnants of magnificent temples, law-courts, palaces and marketplace, while your guide informs you of daily life in the heart of the Roman Empire. The tour will eventually lead you to Palatine Hill – the birthplace of the Roman Senate, and where Rome’s Emperors lived and ruled from. You will then discover the famous Colosseum, where you will learn more about this ancient amphitheatre; the Gladiators; and why violence was such a fundamental part of everyday Roman life. 

What you'll see

Colosseum
The Roman Empire’s largest amphitheatre, and one of the world’s most awe-inspiring ancient monuments.
