What To Expect
Colosseum Arena & Basement:
Your tour begins at the individual visitors’ entrance gate, easily reached from Colosseum square. Once you’ve completed the security check and passed through the turnstiles, you will head to a belvedere from where you will have the chance to admire the fabled Arena, as well as the basement of the amphitheater, which is also visible from this viewpoint.
In the crater-like Cavea, the amphitheater’s seats, you’ll recapture the amazement of the ancient Romans, who shouted and cheered in full swing at the sight of blood. The stories of the wild animals and the desperate men waiting to meet death are bound to get you deep into the brutal heart of the Colosseum!
Just an 8-minute walk from the Colosseum, the Roman Forum is accessed from Via dei Fiori Imperiali. Upon validating your ticket at the entrance on Via della Salara Vecchia, your audio tour will direct you to the first point of interest, the Basilica Aemilia. There, you’ll admire the only Republican Basilica surviving today and gain insight into the joyous lifestyle of the early Romans who, just like contemporary Italians, loved dining al fresco!
The Temple of Caesar:
Among many other fascinating attractions, you’ll encounter the famed Temple of Caesar, whose life and assassination is commemorated until today at the heart of the Forum. Leave a flower on the grave of the glorious general and learn about the games of power and control in the political life of Rome.
