This small-group tour begins at a meeting point just outside of the Colosseum’s entrance. Lines for the UNESCO World Heritage Site are famously long, but skip-the-line access means you’ll save hours otherwise spent waiting.
Follow your guide inside, put on audio headsets, and discover this world-famous landmark up close. You’ll hear stories about the gladiators who once fought here, as well as the long history of the Colosseum.
Next, the tour continues in the Roman Forum, just adjacent from the Colosseum. Home to a heavy concentration of priceless ruins, the Forum was once the heart of the Roman Empire. See Julius Caesar’s final resting place, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, and more.
The final stop on the tour is Palatine Hill. Climb up to the top for views overlooking the Roman Forum and beyond, and hear the Romulus and Remus myth from your guide. The tour ends back in front of the Roman Forum.
