Colosseum’s ground floor and second tier Explore the Colosseum in quick time on this express tour! Join your guide and discover the highlights of the Colosseum with a knowledgeable dedicated guide, who will let you know everything about this historic landmark! The time will pass by in a flash! You will enter a journey that will take you back in time, back to the Roman Empire’s glory days! In this tour, you will explore the Colosseum from both the ground level and the second tier. The ground floor of the monument was reserved, of course, for the Emperor himself. Senators and their families used to also join the Emperor to the games, and be sat next to him. Other significant officials, usually the non-senatorial noble class would find their seats on the second tier of the monument. You will explore both tiers and witness the difference in perspective. Our local guides are fantastic story tellers and are extremely passionate about ancient history. They will dedicate their full attention to you, answer all your questions and interact with you throughout the duration of the tour!

Touring the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill Since we aim to provide you with the best understanding of Ancient Rome, our tour would have not been complete without helping you discover two highlights of the ancient times: the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. As a result, your tour will continue to the Roman Forum, the central square of ancient Rome. Here you can learn about the daily life of the typical Roman citizen. You will be introduced to their social and religious customs. The most interesting part of the Roman Forum is that even though it initially started as a market place, in time it became much more purposeful and it became surrounded by imposing civic buildings. The future of the empire started being decided here, and a tour of the Roman Forum would be an interactive lesson about the power of the empire. Finally, your private tour will end on the Palatine Hill, one of the original seven hills of Rome and a place where you can still see the remnants of the emperors’ palaces. Are you wondering why the Palatine Hill was the preferred residential location of the wealthy noble families of Ancient Rome? Well, it was because of the fantastic views of the city. Luckily, you will be able to experience this as well. Once you reach the top of the hill you will enjoy breath-taking panoramic views over Circus Maximus and the Roman Forum.
