When it comes to visiting Rome, it’s practically impossible to ignore the incredible history that’s found all across the city. Experience the city’s greatest monuments across a three-hour tour on a sunny afternoon as our Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour leads you through many of Rome’s centuries-old landmarks and offers you a glimpse into their remarkable history.
You can’t take a tour of ancient Rome without also diving into the wonders of the Colosseum, the world’s largest amphitheatre. Opened in AD 80, you won’t have to wait to get inside as our Skip the Line tickets have you instantly entering the 50,000-seat venue alongside your expert tour guide. Explore the very same spot where gladiators fought colossal battles against each other and vicious animals, while your guide will also lead you through the Colosseum’s stunning architecture as you learn about the extraordinary events that took place here.
Once we’ve finished roaming the Colosseum, it’s time to experience an array of other ancient Roman landmarks. That means heading to the nearby Roman Forum, a once bustling part of the city that was central to the population’s social, political and commercial interests. Wander the lush green landscape with your guide as you come across a variety of fascinating ruins, including those of the Curia, the Temple, and House of Vestals, the funeral altar of Julius Caesar, the Arch of Titus and many others. Considered one of the most important archaeological findings of the 19th-century, this area took more than a hundred years to fully excavate.
As you continue onwards through the Roman Forum, you’ll soon make your way up Palatine Hill, which is often said to be the precise place where Romulus founded the city. Enjoy vast panoramic views across Rome, plus landmarks such as the Imperial Palace and the ruins of the Circus Maximus, a massive chariot-racing stadium dating back thousands of years.
Having explored the greatest highlights of ancient Rome, this is where we conclude our tour. However, you’re free to stay and explore the myriad of ruins and historic monuments that can easily be found within walking distance.
