What To Expect
Visit the iconic Colosseum and its Dungeon; be transported back to the Roman Empire. Stand in the amphitheater that was once the entertainment center of the city, hosting fights between gladiators and even wild animals imported from Africa and the Middle East.
At the nearby Forum, your guide will regale you with stories of political intrigue, betrayal, and triumph. See what once was the heart of day-to-day life and explore the remains of the most important buildings and spaces of one of the greatest ancient settlements.
Discover Palatine Hill, where the legendary Romulus is believed to have founded the city. It became the location of the houses of affluent Romans and then home to the emperors. The ruins are impressive and the view over the Circus Maximus is a must-see.
