What to expect?

Take a step back in time to the age of gladiators, great rulers, emperors and popes, art and Roman history. The 3 hour skip the line tour bring together all the multi facets of Ancient Rome. This experience also allows you to learn about obelisks and ancient divine statues, medieval buildings, renaissance and baroque monuments and fountains, legends and traditions still alive, because this tour includes some of the main attractions of Rome.

Everyone has heard about the Colosseum growing up so it is obviously a priority when you come to Rome. Built nearly 2,000 years ago, still today the Colosseum is one of the most iconic monuments in the history of mankind! But we don’t want to just show you the monument; we want to make it come alive for you. To relive the last moments of a gladiator, to hear the roaring crowd of more than 60,000 people and feel the awe that someone who’s first time in Rome would have felt at the grandeur and magnificence of the Eternal City. We will then take you to the Roman Forum and tread upon the same roads whose feet would have felt Julius Caesar, Augustus and every other famous person you have ever heard about from ancient times. We will show you the Senate House and the place where Julius Caesar’s ashes were placed.

 

Next, you will walk along the Imperial Fora, a series of public squares constructed between 46 B.C. and 113 A.D, getting to Venice Square that still celebrates the Unification of Italy with its imposing national monument, the Vittoriano. In the same square you will recognize the famous balcony from which Mussolini spoke to his people before and during the Second World War. Continuing, you will discover that the current city was built on the ruins of the ancient one. With you local guide you will stop in Torre di Largo Argentina to meditate on the place where Julius Caesar was assassinated. From here move to Piazza della Rotonda where you will find in front of you one of the most beautiful and best preserved building from ancient times, the Pantheon. It’s story begins nearly 2000 years ago when Agrippa, faithful friend of Augustus had a temple which was dedicated to all gods in the heaven. In those days it looked very different. It was Hadrian who rebuilt the Pantheon as you see it now. Near by this huge structure there is one of the most famous Gelateria and Café, so what better way to enjoy an ice cream or a lovely espresso. Finish the tour in Navona Square.

Perfect idea to skip the line and go see the treasures of Rome without crowds, visit legendary spots with the architectural masterpieces familiar from Arts classes. The tour started with Colosseum and then we did a loop around the historic core of Rome. The guide was very supportive and I do not know why, but it touched me a lot. I mean when I saw the stones where Julius Caesar once walked, I felt the power of the ancient civilization which shook the world with its wars, achievements, tragedies and discoveries. Morning is a very good time for such type of city walks – it is still fresh, the sun is not blazng yet and you do not bump into other tourists all the time. I loved the tour!

Our guide was very attentive. She gave us time to look around without a hurry and answered all the questions. Rome is not easy to find oneself in. Now I can walk on my own – I remember where all the important things are, I am not afraid to get lost. Thanks!

I want to write in this review that Colosseum tour was a vere good tour which I had when I go to Rome. Our family visited our friends and we not go foreign travel often. We want to see the places in Rome to show and to tell our families in Bangalore. Now we see the palaces and the gardens and the street and the squares of old Rome. We made photos and bring souvenirs. We have some time left. May be we go again to this tour. We like it.
