After a brief explanation of the itinerary, you’ll visit the world’s largest amphitheatre with your “skip the line” ticket which will allow you to access directly the metal detector control. All of this in a small and intimate group of maximum 10 people since we don’t want to make our clients feel uncomfortable in big groups. Once inside, the tour guide will bring the Colosseum back to life by explaining how the gladiators entertained the crowds with spectacular fights and show you the engineering applied by the Romans to build such an imposing structure ahead of its time.
After the Colosseum, you will proceed into the archaeological site of the Roman Forum which represented the commercial, legal and administrative center of ancient Rome. You will literally feel as if you were brought back in time during the Imperial age of Rome. All of this, while walking by ancient ruins such as Julius Caesar’s original mausoleum where his body was cremated, the imposing temple of Antonino and Faustina and the fascinating structure of the ancient Roman senate.
