Description

COLOSSEUM & ROMAN FORUM TOUR

“As long as the Colosseum stands, Rome shall stand.” (Venerable Bede)

What was there before the Colosseum was built? How long did it take to build? What was the general purpose of the games? Did you know there were other games and not just the famous gladiator fights?
All these questions and more will be answered on our private Colosseum tour. We will take you to the 2nd century during the climax of the games and relive a day in the lives of the gladiators and the citizens crowding the bleachers. Friends, Romans, countrymen lend me your ears! After our glorious introduction of the Colosseum follow us through the Roman Forum. Passing by 2 beautifully preserved triumphal arches, we will point out how there is more than one Forum.

Learn about debates of Roman Senators, ambitious leaders, and ordinary riff raff you would have seen walking on the via sacra (sacred road). Our guides will show you the exact location of Julius Caesar’s funeral pyre, a solid bronze door of the 4th century still intact, where the sacred flame of Rome burnt guarded by the Vestal Virgins and much more!
