For this private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum in Rome you can pick what time you’d like your tour to start from between 10 a.m. and 2p.m. You can also choose a group size from one to eight people (prices vary). However, no matter what size your group is or what departure time you pick, your private tour starts with a pickup at your hotel or the Termini Central Train Station.

The first stop on the day’s agenda is at Capitol Hill, the city hall square designed by Michelangelo. Here you can enjoy views of the Roman Forum as your guide walks you through the area, and shows you the well-known ancient ruins. Besides the Temple of Julius Cesar, the Arch of Septimio Severus, and the Arch of Titus, you can also see the House of the Vestals and the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine.

Afterward, follow your guide on to the Colosseum. Your skip-the-line privileges will make sure to give you more time at the stadium rather than waiting in the long lines. Stroll along as your guide tells you tales of ancient Roman emperors and gladiators. If you’d like some free time away from your guide during this tour, just ask your guide, and they can accommodate your requests.

Get dropped back at your hotel or the train station (whichever you prefer) after three hours has passed in Rome.
