Your tour begins at a designated meeting point in central Rome, where you’ll greet your guide and small group and head to your first historic location: the Roman Forum. Explore the ruins of palaces commissioned by Roman emperors and take in panoramic city views from the summit of Palatine Hill.

Then, you’ll head straight to the Colosseum, bypassing lines often in excess of three hours with a skip-the-line admission ticket. Once inside, you’ll have VIP access to the arena floor of the Colosseum, a space usually off limits to members of the public. Headsets are provided to ensure you hear your guide’s commentary clearly.

Very good and informative tour

Great experience for our whole family. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very patient given the heat on the day. Stopping frequently for breaks gave an opportunity to share her wisdom. Thank you. Highly recommended. We'd do it again.

Tour Guide's English was poor. Distracted from attractions.

In our opinion, this Guide's English was not good enough to be giving English-speaking tours. Sentences weren't completed as she tried to grasp for words but could not find them, and a lot of meaning was lost. I felt that I could have learned more...More

We did not have to wait in the line to purchase tickets, we did have to go through a quick security line, as does everyone.
