What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

Enter where the Roman fighters would only exit... through "Libitinaria" The Gate of Death! You will take a unique passageway with special access through the side of the Colosseum while avoiding the public crowds at the main entrance. Stand upon the reconstructed Arena floor in the centre of this ancient fighting pit. Walk in the path of Rome's famous Gladiators and have your expert guide tell their stories and famous events that occurred inside the colossal walls of the Colosseum.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

The most beautiful and important of Romes seven hills is the Palatine Hill. Discover the founding point of one of the greatest civilizations and explore the ancient ruins of the Imperial palace; let our guides unveil this spectacular archaeological site where the ruins, the towering pine trees and the spectacular views over the Circus Maximus and the Roman Forum make it a once in a lifetime experience!

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

The political, social, and commercial heart of downtown Rome is not to be missed! Walk the original roman roads (the via sacra and via nova) and weave between ornate arches, towering temples, and lots more! Although there is less than half of the forum complete today, let our guides do a fantastic job of filling in the blanks for you and restore the city to its former glory.

Duration: 30 minutes
