What to expect

They say “All roads lead to Rome” — and it certainly does seem like it with how many visitors the city attracts each year. Much of Rome’s tourism concentrates around the famed Colosseum and Roman Forum, two of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. During this comprehensive small-group tour, you’ll get the chance to see these wonders of ancient Rome in a unique, thorough, and convenient way — with skip-the-line tickets and a local expert guide who will highlight the most important facts and stories about the landmarks for you.

Step into the Colosseum to explore a place from the distant past. Once inside, your guide will tell you about the amphitheatre's history, while adding additional dimensions to the stories told. You’ll get to see evidence of Nero’s great fire, discover grisly details about the gladiators' games, and unveil the truth about the many myths surrounding the place. One of our guides, Valerie, is a professional archeologist who enjoys bringing history to life in a fun and accessible way. She says, “History doesn’t have to be boring. My favourite part about being a tour guide is making the stories sparkle and come to life for my guests.”

Your tour will continue to outstanding sites like the Arch of Constantine and Palatine Hill. Afterward, you’ll visit the largest inner-city archaeological area in the world — the Roman Forum. When describing the Roman Forum, Valerie says, “This was the heart of ancient Rome's social, commercial, and political life, and it’s overflowing with historical significance. Although the site is now in ruins, we can still see and admire the traces of the Roman Empire’s former glory.”
