Discover the most fascinating archaeological sites dotted around the Italian capital on this Rome walking tour. Meet your guide, an expert in archeology and history, at the Arch of Constantine. Wander the sights and let history come to life as you hear stories of life in ancient Rome. Wander beneath the great triumphal arch built in honor of the emperor Constantine, then head to the Colosseum, bypassing the hassle of lining up as you enter straight into this famous spot.
Wander through the Colosseum with your Rome guide, through the largest amphitheatre ever made by the Romans, and admire this vast structure that could seat more than 50,000 people. See the arena where the gladiators fought for their lives and where other types of spectacles took place. Learn about its fascinating history before continuing the walking tour of Rome to the Roman Forum. Once the political and religious center of ancient Rome, the Forum’s origins date back to the 7th century BC.
During this Rome trip, you will start to understand the life of the ancient Romans by visiting the Forum’s most important buildings and temples, including: the Temple of Augustus where the funeral of Julius Caesar took place, the Via Sacra (Holy road) which is the most important road in Rome and the Curia, the meeting place of the Roman Senate. Exiting the Forum, head to a nearby typical enoteca (wine bar) where you can recount stories of battles and glory, and where this Rome tour will come to an end.
