    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

    See more of the Colosseum with the benefit of a private half-day tour that includes skip-the-line tickets with access to the Belvedere section.

    Meet your guide at your centrally-located Rome hotel for your 3.5-hour Colosseum tour. Skip the line at the Colosseum and wander the amphitheater following the path of the ancient Romans. Learn the history of this place and hear tales about the gladiators, battles with wild beasts, and even naval battles.

    The Colosseum Belvedere extension takes you up to the third, fourth, and fifth tiers of Colosseum- offering you a unique view of the arena below and amazing views of the city of Rome. As you head to the upper decks of the Colosseum you will see where the masses watched the games, some of the Colosseum's disappearing architectural elements, and be entertained by your guide with stories and secrets from the past.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

    Walk a short distance to the entrance of the Roman Forum and explore the ancient heart of Rome and discover the ruins of the political center of the great Empire. Listen to your guide describe how this place looked in its heyday. While walking down the Via Sacra, see the Temple of Julius Caesar, the House of the Vestal Virgins, the Temple of Saturn and the massive Curia romana.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

    You will walk along this Piazza in order to access the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.

    Nothing was added from the time of the Roman Empire, what you see, is more or less the view that the romans had in the past.

    Stop At: Arco di Costantino, Via di San Gregorio, 00186 Rome Italy

    Admire the view of the most important Triumphal Arch of Rome dedicated to the Famous Emperor Costantine.

    This Arch represents a turning point of the Roman History and Art, a dividing line between the rise of the Christians and the decline of the Roman Empire.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Pass By: Via dei Fori Imperiali, 00186 Rome Italy

    Admire the view of the famous Via dei Fori Imperiali, projected under the Government of Mussolini.

    Pass By: Eyes of Rome, Via Germanico 101, 00192 Rome Italy
