Colosseum and Ancient Rome Small Group Tour

Tour Description

Our 3-hour Colosseum and Ancient Rome Small Group Tour is specifically designed for anyone looking for a visit to the symbol of Rome, the Colosseum, and a comprehensive tour of the most important archaeological sites of Rome, the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum.

By booking this tour you will be shown three must-see sites of the Eternal City all in one, together with a small group of maximum 20 people, led by one of our expert English-speaking guides.

Meet your guide and the rest of the group at our office in Via Frangipane 30, close to the Colosseum. Thanks to our pre-purchased skip-the-line tickets you will enter the Colosseum, originally called Amphitheatrum Flavium, without waiting in line. Once you will see how long queues are outside the Colosseum, you will understand this is a huge advantage!

Step inside, your knowledgeable English-speaking guide will describe the gladiator battles, their combat techniques and traditions. You will learn about everything that took place inside this spectacular building: how it was built, what it was used for and how it survived until now. Your second stop will be the Roman Forum. The Forum played a crucial role in the life of the Romans, since it was the main location for any kind important event, social and public. Many ruins, columns, buildings and temples defeated the test of time and only with a professional guide will you be able to really understand their original uses and importance.

Your last stop will be the Palatine Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome. It is believed that this hill was very important for the Romans. Legend says that a she-wolf (“Lupa”) found two twins, Romulus and Remus, in a basket floating on the river Tiber. She decided to save and hide them in a cave on the Palatine Hill. As they grew up, Romulus became the founder of the city of Rome, supposedly in 753 B.C. During the Imperial Era, the Palatine became location of choice for Emperors and wealthy Romans who built their palaces on this panoramic hill.

In just three hours, our licensed expert guide will reveal all the history and secrets behind the ruins and buildings of Ancient Rome that you stumble upon during your walk. It will be like a journey through time if you choose our Colosseum and Ancient Rome Small Group Tour!

Meet your guide at our office located on Via Frangipane 30, just 2 minutes away from the entry of the Colosseum. In order to reach our office by public transport you need to take the Metro line B (the blu one) and get off at Colosseum station. You need to exit from the ground floor, having the Metro station on your back and the Colosseum in front of you. Turn right and walk for about 3 minutes along Via dei Fori Imperiali. Just before the Information Point with the big yellow “i” sign on the wall above the entrance, on your right end side, you will see a little arch. Pass through the arch, walk alongside the little alley and you will find our office at the end of it, crossing the street. You can also get there by taxi, asking to be dropped off to Via Frangipane 30. Please be aware that on public transports, you might find pickpockets.
