Tour Highlights

  1. Guided tour of the Colosseum’s exterior: The Colosseum, known in its heyday as the Flavian Amphitheater, is an architectural marvel that captivated both emperors and spectators alike. Its exterior reveals the ingenuity of Roman engineers, who used advanced construction techniques to create this impressive structure. Tales of gladiatorial combat and grand spectacles echo off its walls, adding to its intrigue.
  2. Exploration of the Roman Forum’s periphery: Our journey continues to the Roman Forum, the epicenter of public life in ancient Rome. This rectangular plaza, surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient buildings, was once a vibrant hub of political, judicial, and social activity. Key sites include the Forum of Julius Caesar, Palatine Hill, and the Via dei Fori Imperiali.
  3. Insight into Trajan’s Markets from the outside: Finally, we reach Trajan’s Markets, a large complex of ruins that was once ancient Rome’s version of a shopping mall.  Its exterior presents a glimpse into the everyday life of Romans, their trading practices, and the goods that were on offer.
  4. Professional Tour Guides sharing captivating stories
