TOUR DESCRIPTION

Our Colosseum Private Tour includes the three most important archaeological sights in Rome: the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. Let us show you the most iconic building in Rome, and learn about the gladiators’ life, the bloody spectacles and the hunting games.


Duration: about 3 hours

Who were the gladiators, and where did they live? Did they always fight until death? What is historically accurate in the movies that you have seen, and what is not? We will answer all your questions and make sure you have a great time. Learn about the spectacular hunting games, and how elephants and lions were unleashed on hunters and criminals condemned to death. Let us teach you about the naval battles that took place in the Colosseum, and admire the incredible building techniques used to construct this beautiful monument, which has survived the tests of time and earthquakes.

During our Colosseum private tour, we will also show you two even more important sights: the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, and we’ll take you straight to the heart of the Roman Empire. The Palatine Hill is where everything started: here, according to legend, Romulus founded Rome and then killed his brother Remus. Later, this hill became the house of the emperors. We will show you Caesar’s Palace and tell you about the history of the empire: ask your guide about Augustus’ obsession with power, Caligula’s decadent vices and Nero’s insane dreams. You will travel back in time, wandering through the gargantuan rooms of the palace of Domitian and see why he considered himself a god on earth. Nowadays, the Palatine Hill is a green oasis in the heart of the city, which offers respite from the crowds of the Colosseum, as well as breathtaking views of Rome. We will happily show you the best photo spots so you can bring home great memories of your vacation.

You will also visit the Roman Forum, the center of the Roman Empire and the core of politics, religion and culture. Who was Julius Caesar, and why was he killed? Did you know that he was the first Roman man to be turned into a god? During our Colosseum private tour we will not only answer all your questions, but also let you walk through the streets where Caesar walked on the morning that he was killed. We’ll show you the spot where he was cremated, along with some of the most important and beautiful buildings in Rome. Why is the Menorah represented on the Arch of Titus? Who were the Vestal Virgins, and why were they buried alive if they fell pregnant? What is the difference between a Roman temple and a Christian church? We will answer all your questions and make sure you have a great time

The Palatine Hill is the place where, according to legend, Romulus founded Rome. Centuries later this hill became the residence of the emperors. We will show you the Emperors’ Palace and tell you about the history of the empire: ask your guide about Augustus’ obsession with power, Caligula’s decadent vices and Nero’s insane dreams. You will travel back in time, led by your personal guide through the palace of the emperors. Nowadays, the Palatine Hill is a green oasis in the heart of the city, which offers respite from the crowds of the Colosseum as well as some breathtaking views of Rome. We’ll be happy to show you the best photo spots so you can bring home great memories of your vacation.
