The itinerary

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!
