The Colosseum – one of the most iconic structures on the planet.
This tour includes pick up from your hotel, as well as priority entrance (skipping lines – except mandatory security/metal detector checks) to the Colosseum (Ground Floor and First Level.)
Your guide will bring the world’s most famous amphitheater to life, explaining its awe-inspiring structure, and recreating the days when it was filled with the sounds of roaring animals and crowds, and the clashing swords of gladiators. Take a stroll through time and discover the true meaning of the phrase “Bread and Circus” while your guide describes the splendor, glory, and spectacle that made the Colosseum the finest, most technologically advanced entertainment complex of its time. Recently cleaned and restored, you will see the Colosseum in all its splendor and glory.
From the Colosseum you will walk past the Arch of Constantine and your guide will bring more than 2000 years of history to life. The Ancient Roman Forum and Imperial Forums were the political and commercial heart of ancient Rome. You will see the temples, monuments and civic buildings built by the largest power in the western world.
If you choose, the guide can leave you to explore on your own at the end of the tour so that you may leisurely take in more of the Forum, Palatine Hill and afterwards you can exit the archeological site and climb the Capitoline Hill. If you want this option you must tell your guide at the start of the tour.
Due to recent terrorist threats, Rome has increased Colosseum security which may result in long, unavoidable security check lines. In the case of very long security lines, the guide will explain the Colosseum from the outside, allowing clients to enter at their leisure. NO LIQUIDS, GELS, SPRAYS allowed inside the Colosseum.
