Tour description

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 4 people MEASURES BY COVID-19 Important information We are taking safety and hygiene measures recommended by the health authorities in all Guruwalks: - Limited number of visitors - Safety distance between visitors - Compulsory to wear your own mask
