What To Expect | Colosseum:

From gory gladiatorial contests to classical dramas and even simulated sea battles, Rome's Colosseum is an architectural wonder that's seen its fair share of cheering crowds. Nowadays it entertains the masses in a slightly different way, with sheer beauty and spectacle.

Your exploration of the Colosseum will cover many different aspects of this eternal amphitheatre. Discover details of countless gladiatorial contests and get insights into the workings of the subterranean hypogeum and arena area itself. Many hidden treasures also await, such as inscriptions on archways, tunnels and the remnants of hydraulic machines. Put simply, there's far more to the Colosseum than meets the eye.


What To Expect | Roman Forum & Palatine Hill:

By visiting the Roman Forum you'll be able to trace the life and assassination of Julius Caesar while uncovering insights into the daily lives of ordinary citizens in ancient Rome. Witness the very spot where the body of Caesar was cremated, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, the Arch of Titus, and the Senate House.

It doesn't end at temples and grand monuments, there's even the capital's ancient underbelly, its brothels with their revealing signage, as well as former marketplaces and Via Sacra - a road on which legions once marched during triumphal parades.

Lastly, travel across to the Palatine Hill, one of the most ancients parts of Rome. Here you'll find sprawling archaeological excavations including the Domus Flavia and Circus Maximus.



Note that the local bus tour operator is able to accommodate visitors with wheelchairs or with walking disabilities. Large handbags, haversacks etc, are not permitted inside the Colosseum. Wardrobe services are not available.
