Our Colosseum and Rome City Tour is an incredible way to see many the world-famous sites of this age-old city within one simple adventure. We start our tour at the Colosseum and you won’t have to wait to get inside as our Skip the Line tickets will have you bypassing the queue. Alongside your expert tour guide, you’ll discover what the gladiators must have felt as you find yourself surrounded by this ancient 50,000-seat amphitheatre.
Making our way around Rome’s historic wonders, we’ll soon head to the Roman Forum. Excavated slowly over the previous 200 years, this once bustling commercial and social hub is home to many of Rome’s most notable monuments. The importance of this area will quickly become clear as you explore the Curia, the Temple and House of Vestals, the Arch of Titus and Julius Caesar’s funeral alter.
Afterwards, we’ll climb one of Rome’s iconic peaks, Palatine Hill – the exact location where Romulus is said to have founded Rome. From this lookout, you’ll get to experience spectacular views that include the Imperial Palace, Circus Maximus and the vast ruins of ancient Rome beyond.
Before we visit many of Rome’s most beautiful fountains, squares and structures, we’ll take a break for lunch to give everyone a chance to rest up for the busy afternoon. Reconvene with your guide at the bustling Piazza di Spagna, at the bottom of the picturesque Spanish Steps. It’s here you’ll also find Pietro Bernini’s much-loved Baroque-style Baracaccia Fountain.
Next, we’ll wind our way through the charming cobblestone alleyways as we head for another of Bernini’s baroque masterpieces, the adored Trevi Fountain. Make sure you follow the fun location tradition – face away from the fountain and toss a coin over your left shoulder – that way you’re bound to return to Rome one day.
From here, we’ll take a short stroll to the Pantheon, one of Rome’s most well-preserved buildings. Featuring a massive domed roof and a circular oculus that lets inside a glimmer of sunlight, buried here are some of Italy’s most historic figures, including painter Raphael, and kings Vittorio Emanuele II and Umberto I.
Our tour concludes at the nearby Piazza Navona, a sprawling square that showcases another of Bernini masterpieces known as the Fountain of Four Rivers. A picturesque last stop, it’s easy to see why Rome stays at the top of most people’s travel bucket lists.
