What To Expect


You will retrace the steps of the Gladiators, accompanied by exciting stories, told by your professionally English-speaking guide, of the events that unfolded inside the great walls of the world-famous Colosseum. These stories will bring the ancient monument to life, and will give you an intimate and interesting insight into the life of the Roman people that once filled the arena. (Please note we will either start with the Colosseum or the Roman Forum/Palatine Hill depending on the time of tickets we are able to purchase)

1 hour • Admission Ticket Included

Palatine Hill

The Palatine Hill is the most beautiful and important of Rome’s great seven hills, and is a must-see on any tour of the city. Here, with the aid of our guides, you can discover the birthplace of one of the greatest civilisations in history, and explore the ancient ruins of the Imperial Palace, surrounded by towering pine trees and spectacular views of the Circus Maximus and the Roman Forum below.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Roman Forum

It is vital to visit the political, social, and commercial heart of downtown Rome to truly understand the spirit of life in Roman times. Here you will walk original Roman roads, the Via Sacra and the Via Nova, which weave amongst ornate arches, towering temples, and the spirits of the myth-shrouded Romulus and the world-famous Julius Caesar. Although less than half of the forum is complete today, your guides will fill in all the empty spaces with their extensive knowledge and passion, which will restore the city to its former glory.
