Detailed Description

Detailed Description

Experience the most important sites of Ancient Rome, skipping the long lines on this half-day tour which covers the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill – so you spend less time queuing and more time exploring.

Visit Rome’s most iconic site, the Colosseum, with an expert, English-speaking guide who will talk you through the bloody past of the amphitheater, home to gladiators, mock sea-battles and executions. You will spend over an hour inside the Colosseum, exploring it from two levels and wandering its circumference in an effort to understand what it must have been like when the stands were packed, the crowds were roaring and a gladiator’s life hung on the whims of an emperor.

The tour also covers the Roman Forum, where you’ll walk along the “Via Sacra” or “Sacred Way” – the main path through the Roman Forum, which once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions as Roman armies returned from war. Revisit the past as your guide points out the old moneylender’s shop, Caesar’s Temple and the house of the Vestal Virgins (who had undoubtedly the best job in Ancient Rome).

On top of the Colosseum and Roman Forum, you will see the Palatine Hill, the most famous of the Seven Hills of Rome. From here you will admire the views of the Roman Forum and Nero’s Circus Maximus where chariot races were once held. Romulus and Remus were said to have been found on the Palatine by the she-wolf who nursed and raised them. Legend holds that Romulus went on to found Rome, so your guide will mean it when they explain that this really is the heart of the Eternal City!

In Rome’s most popular tourist sites things can get pretty hectic – get the most from your visit with not just Skip the Line Access, but headsets when appropriate so you can always hear your guide. Covering the three most important sites of Ancient Rome, this half-day tour means you can see the very best of the enchanting ruins on even the shortest vacation.
