Colosseum and Ancient Rome tour, 3 hours

Rapid confirmation.

A longer tour that of course covers the Colosseum in depth, but then goes on to take in the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill area, the Via Sacra and the Arch of Titus, the House of the Vestal Virgins and the Domitian Palace. This is an official three hour tour - you'll be led by an expert in ancient Roman history and the group size will never be more than 15 people. Meeting point is just outside the Colosseum.

Spend three hours reliving the wonders of Ancient Rome with an in depth exploration of the Colosseum and surrounding area. The price includes entrance tickets (all skip-the-queue) as well as headsets where necessary.

The tour begins, unsurprisingly, at the Colosseum and an explanation of its construction and its past life. Once inside you'll be learning about the often gory goings on and the hard lives of the the gladiators. From one of the interior levels you'll have the Arch of Constantine and other surrounding monuments pointed out to you.

Next it's on the the nearby Forum, home to some of Rome's most noted monuments including the Curia (focus of the Roman Senate), Julius Caesar's funeral altar, the House and Temple of the Vestal Virgins and the Arch of Titus. From here it's a short way to the Palatine Hill; Romulus founded the city of Rome here and it went on to become the favoured position for the Imperial residences - remains of the impressive Domitian Palace are still visible here.

The final view of the tour is across and over the legendary Circus Maximus, once home to fiercely contested chariot races. These are very popular and well reviewed tours that will give you an insightful introduction to the splendours and way of life of ancient Rome.

    Wonderful guide! She was very knowledgeable and the tour was quite thorough with coverage of the historical background for each place we visited. WE had ample time for photos and our guide made sure that we had great places to take them even with the crush of Easter weekend visitors.
