What can I expect?

This best-selling comprehensive tour takes you through the heart of Rome to the Colosseum. Your English-speaking guide will brief you on the city's history while steering you away from the crowds. You'll stand in the footsteps of Julius Caesar, Trajan, Nero, and more while learning about the founding of Rome, its steady rise to power, and its subsequent fall. 

The tour begins at Piazza Navona. Soak up the rhythm of the city as you make your way past famous landmarks like the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, and the Trevi Fountain (make sure to throw in three coins, Sinatra-style!)

Once at the Colosseum, skip the line and enter through the exclusive Gladiator's Gate, which was the entry point for those who fought in the Colosseum's ring. The arena floor extends only partway across the amphitheater, providing a fantastic view of both the underground chambers below and the grandstands above. This was where the gladiators fought to the death. That may thrill or frighten you, but either way, it's sure to get your pulse going!

After this 3½-hour tour, you'll be well-versed in the history of ancient Rome, plus have a true sense of the bustling metropolis it is today.
