Exploring a city so rich in history from Ancient Rome to the Renaissance and beyond is an adventure only to be undertaken alongside an expert. Our local guides are here to demystify the legends and uncover the truths of Rome, from the brutality and bravery of the Gladiators of the Colosseum, to the tranquil beauty of the Roman Forum & Palatine Hill and on to the splendor of the Vatican, Sistine Chapel and the Borghese Gallery. Delve deep into the wonders of Rome with our professional and personable guides, on hand to answer all of your questions on the Ancient city.
With the priority ticket, you’ll start off straight inside the most spectacular monument in Rome, the Colosseum. Your expert history guide will breathe new life into the gruesome entertainment the ancient Romans enjoyed here – from gladiator fights, wild animal hunts, to mass executions under the gaze of the impassive emperors! You’ll also discover what went on behind the scenes, including the role these games played in the ancient roman society and the stories on the amazing machinery that made the spectacles so legendary.
Our tour of Ancient Rome will go beyond the gladiators in an in-depth stroll on the Palatine Hill. Often overlooked by tourists, this was however the very birth place of the Eternal City. It was here that the legendary founder of Rome, Romulus, and his twin brother Remus, were raised by a she-wolf. The lush green hill offers an escape from the heat and hides some of the city’s oldest and most beautiful ruins. We’ll not miss the Flavian Palace, the Baths of Septimius Severus, and the Stadium of Domitian.
Next stop is the ruin of the Roman Forum, the center stage of everyday life in Ancient Rome. With stories that excite our imagination, we’ll hear the heated political debates in the circular hall of the Senate and see the everlasting sacred flame protected by the Vestal Virgins. We’ll visit the temples of the Roman gods and their transformation in the early days of Christianity. An once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn about history in the very place where it took place!
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
