Meet with your English-speaking guide and the rest of your group (maximum of 20 people) in our office near the Colosseum. Your guide is a licensed expert guide who has a real and infectious passion for Ancient Rome and its history. Learn about Ancient Rome right away as you start making your way to its centerpiece- the Colosseum.

Bypass the crowds queuing in front of the Colosseum as you pass through the very same entrance once used by the Gladiators as they stepped out onto the Colosseum Arena to begin their bloody fights! Together with your guide and group you will be transported back to the time when the Colosseum was the entertainment center of Rome. Stand on the Arena, a restricted area of the Colosseum, where all sorts of thrilling spectacles took place and rest assured your guide will reconstruct these events to share all the thrilling details. Get to grips with the mechanics behind these performances, peering down from the Arena into the Colosseum’s dungeons below.

After the exploration of the Colosseum, climb up to one of the seven hills of Rome, Palatine Hill. Enjoy panoramic views of the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus. This was the choice location for the houses of the Emperors and wealthy Romans, while up there you’ll see why!

Next, you’ll really get amongst the ruins of Ancient Rome as you stroll through the Roman Forum. Once the core of public and social life in Ancient Rome, the Forum was the main spot where all important events took place.

Meet your guide at our office located in Via Frangipane 30. 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 “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.
