About the Tour

Follow me on this fascinating tour of Ancient Rome where we will explore the stories, intrigues, victories and defeats of the Roman Emperors. We will do so by visiting the places they forged to exalt and celebrate their exploits, conquests and immense power. - We will start with the monument symbol of the city: the Colosseum (outside). - We will then move to the Ludus Magnus, the place where the gladiators trained before clashing on the arena of the Flavian Amphitheatre. - Via dei Fori Imperiali where it is still possible to admire the remains of the imposing public and religious areas created by the Emperors and then reach Piazza Venezia. - The tour will end at the top of one of the famous seven hills, the Campidoglio, where you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the Roman Forum, the oldest of the Forums and the true cradle of Ancient Rome's civilization. Minimum 5 people.

The tour was amazing! MariaGrazia was extremly knowegable about ancient roman history and it was a great experience to be able to visit the historical sites with such a guide. She also had a lot of printed material marking sure that we could imagine how the Romans have lived and how everything used to look like, how it developed during the reign of different emperors. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour, one of the best I have ever attended!
