Itinerary
Stop At:  
Colosseum
Meeting with our guide at the Colosseum, at the agreed time, for a 3 hours itinerary to understand more about Ancient Roman history. The Colosseum is the symbol of the city and the largest Roman amphitheatre in the world, where over 50.000 spectators could quickly find their seats shaded by a huge awning. Cruel fights between gladiators and beasts took place here. You will walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali and go up to the Campidoglio (Capitoline Hill), the acropolis of Ancient Rome, today the monumental city’s mayor seat, designed by Michelangelo in 1536. In its square, lies the statue of Marcus Aurelius. Just the view of the Roman Forum from this point is worth the tour.
