This immersive tour of Rome’s essential ancient sites kicks off at the time chosen at checkout. Find your guide at a conveniently located meeting point in central Rome. From there, head to the Colosseum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and icon of the ancient world.
On this tour, skip the line and discover it up close, while your guide shares stories of its gladiatorial past. Next, you’ll have access to the Colosseum’s limited-access underground areas, which are off-limits to most visitors.
Then, continue to the nearby Roman Forum, home to a huge array of ancient ruins. Following the Via Sacra—once ancient Rome’s busiest street—you see House of the Vestal Virgins, Arch of Septimius Severus, and Arch of Constantine, among other highlights.
The final stop on the tour is Palatine Hill, the oldest part of the city and, according to ancient myth, where Romulus and Remus lived. The tour concludes with a return to the Colosseum.
