Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill Skip the Line Tour with Optional Hotel Pick-up

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins with pickup from your central Rome hotel and a short transfer to Palatine Hill. Arriving before the crowds, head to the top of the hill to enjoy views over the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus below. Listen as your guide recounts the legend of the seven hills of Rome, and explore the hilltop ruins, including the impressive Hippodrome of Domitian and the House of Augustus.

    Continue into the heart of ancient Rome to visit the city’s most popular attraction—the mighty Colosseum. After posing for photos outside the iconic landmark, use your skip-the-line ticket to head straight to the front of the queue. Accompanied by your guide, learn more about the remarkably preserved amphitheater, which dates back to AD 72, and hear stories of notorious gladiator games once held in the stadium.

    After visiting the Colosseum, stop to admire the stunning Arch of Constantine, which dates back to AD 315, before setting out to explore the ruins of the Roman Forum. Enjoy a guided tour of the archeological site, including the Via Sacra, the Temples of Vesta, Antonino and Faustina, and the ancient Basilica Julia.

    Your tour ends in central Rome, close to the Colosseum.
