Description

The ancient glory of Rome returns to life! Skip the Line at three of the most significant surviving remnants of the Eternal City: the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Your expert, English-speaking tour guide will share anecdotes and history, rebuilding the impressive ruins with tales of Ancient Rome’s heyday.

Your journey into antiquity begins with the Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic sights. Your guide will call on their historical and archaeological expertise to tell you all about the battles, both martial and political, that played out in this incredible amphitheatre. You might be surprised to learn that ‘Gladiator’ didn’t get everything right and that feats of ancient engineering even allowed the Romans to re-enact naval battles here.

The next stop takes you back to the beginning. The Palatine Hill is the very spot where brothers Romulus and Remus did battle, and where the victorious Romulus founded the city that would become Rome. Here, you’ll enjoy spectacular views overlooking your next destination: the Roman Forum.

Your journey culminates at the heart of Ancient Rome: the Roman Forum and the Via Sacra, the Sacred Way. All of Roman life could be found in this bustling marketplace: commerce and trade, political rallies, military parades, and the sacred ceremonies of the Vestal Virgins.

In just three hours, you’ll experience all that allowed Rome to endure so long – staying immersed in history the entire time, without wasting a moment waiting in line.

I would highly recommend this. The Tour guide was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and made sure we had plenty of time to take in all the sights.

Laurel was the most amazing tour guide. She took us through the crowded coliseum but also found side places to share information. The Roman forum had so much history but she had to do much with pictures and imagination. Palestinians hill was a hike! Be prepared to walk a lot in unstable ground. But with the trick to be in the place where it all began.

I have been on a number of tours at various sites around the world and will confidently say that this was one of the best. We were guided around the site by Lauren, who had an excellent manner and communication skills and her knowledge was excellent. Added to this we avoided what are frightening queues and I can say no more than to say that if you are looking for one tour for your stay in Rome, choose this one.
