The Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill in Rome have long been some of the most ancient parts of the city. Fascinating and enthralling visitors for nearly 2000 years, the Colosseum is the largest and most famous amphitheatre ever built. Fortunately, it’s still standing today for you to discover. With this highly recommended 3-hour private tour, you’ll get to skip the lines and visit Rome’s most popular attractions alongside a local expert guide.
Start your tour by entering the majestic Colosseum, where you’ll learn about history dating back to the days of ancient Rome. Thrilling anecdotes and stories about past emperors and gladiators will come to life while told by your professionally trained guide. One of our local guides, Pamela, says, ‘Despite being damaged by fires, earthquakes and looting, this huge structure has survived the centuries and is still the most impressive monument of the Roman era.’
Following your visit to the Colosseum, your guide will take you to the site of the Roman Forum archeological site, which for centuries was the centre of daily life in Rome, and then continue to Palatine Hill, which stands 40 metres above the Roman Forum. Pamela explains, ‘Palatine Hill is the centermost of the famous "7 Hills of Rome" and certainly one of the most historic places in the city. Here, you can gaze at the Forum on one side and the Circus Maximus on the other.’
