Standing next to the Colosseum, the world’s largest amphitheater, you’ll feel the energy and excitement that ancient Romans must have felt as they entered to watch gladiators and vicious beasts fight to the death. Your guide will take you inside the massive arena and reveal the history and secrets behind this iconic Roman landmark that has wowed visitors for ages.
Then move to The Forum, the center of, well, everything in Ancient Rome. A place of worship, of celebration, of law, this was the most important place in the ancient world. Explore the Temple of Vesta while learning about the birth of the Republican government over two millennia ago. After a healthy dose of history, move uphill for a bit of mythology at the Palatine Hill, the most central and historical of Rome’s seven hills. Gaze across the city and hear how all of it began with just two twin brothers and a she-wolf many centuries ago on that very spot where you will be standing. By the end, you’ll feel like a part of Ancient Rome, despite the 2000 or so years that have passed.
