Ancient Rome Walking Tour: Colosseum & Roman Forum Highlights
Ancient Rome Walking Tour: Colosseum & Roman Forum Inclusions
Go back in time with this guided tour through the heart of Ancient Rome. Immerse yourself in 360 degrees of breathtaking Roman architecture and walk in the footsteps of giants, learning the history behind these grand monuments.
Meet your guide at the Ach of Constantine before skipping hours of lines and immediately entering the Colosseum. As you walk inside the ancient ruins of the Colosseum, admire mankind’s genius which allowed for the concept to become a reality in 70/80 AD, centuries before the arrival of modern engineering. Listen to your expert guide passionately guide you through the story of the Colosseum, once the most famous amphitheater in the world, holding up to 80,000 spectators, eager to watch gladiators fight to the death or see reenactments of famous battles. A symbol of both glory and disdain, the Colosseum has been standing for almost two millennia, and has served a variety of purposes over time.
Now it’s time to continue the walking tour and admire the splendid Arch of Constantine - sitting right outside the Colosseum - before exploring the ancient ruins of the Roman Forum, the center of Roman day-to-day life back at the time, and today one of the best preserved archeological sites. Continue exploring the jaw-dropping Palatine Hill and ending your tour with a much more significant and deeper connection to the history of Rome. Legend has it, that the Palatine Hill is where the she-wolf found Romolus and Remus, from which Rome received its name. Others believe that Rome might get its name from the Etruscan word “Rhumon”, meaning river. While no one will ever quite know the truth, what we do know is that the nickname “The Eternal City” fits just perfect.
The tour ends at the Palatine Hill where we will say our goodbyes and encourage you to visit the area on your own or head back to your accommodation.
