Return Details

Via dei Fori Imperiali, Roma RM, Italy
Make your own way to the Arch of Constantine to meet your guide for your walking tour.

Your entrance ticket allows you to skip the long lines and enter the Colosseum quickly. Hear from your guide how the Colosseum was developed centuries before the advent of modern engineering in AD 70-80, and how it once held as many as 80,000 spectators.

Just outside, you'll marvel at the Arch of Constantine and then continue to learn about the features of the Roman Forum archaeological site and Palatine Hill. Legend says that on the Palatine, Romulus and Remus were kept alive by a female wolf, thus giving Rome its name. 

Your tour ends at the Colosseum where you can continue to explore the area on your own.

Our tour guide really knew her history of the area. She was conscious of our heat/sun and water needs during the tour. She was very courteous and made the tour enjoyable. I had toured the Colosseum area in previous years but never took in or even knew of the Palatine Hill. The history is amazing! Having said this, through no fault of the guide, I expected more of the Colosseum visit based on the description. We really didn't get anything above and beyond what any tour would have given us. so in that respect this wasn't a tour that stood out above any other ones. It didn't help that on the tour date the place was preparing for a concert.

Muito bom... o guia Edoardo era muito gente boa, além de nos passar os detalhes da história referente a cada item do passeio. Sem contar com a fácil localização do ponto de encontro e a pontualidade no horário.

Die Reiseführerin sprach sehr gut deutsch- sie konnte ohne Pause 3 Stunden über viele tolle Details sprechen. Die Gruppe war jedoch mit 30 Leuten sehr groß und unübersichtlich.
