Tour description

Journey back in time to discover and learn the history of the Kings of Rome, the Roman Republic, and Imperial Rome and its most important monument on a guided tour of Ancient Rome.

Follow in the footsteps of emperors the Roman Fora, the Palatine Hill, the Colosseum (from outside), and more.  With our licensed and professional guides, you will visit the huge archeological areas of the Roman and Imperial Fora together with one of the largest amphitheaters built in Ancient Rome.

During the centuries when Rome was Caput Mundi (capital of the world), the forum was the Roman Empire’s political, social, and commercial heart. Senators, slaves, and commoners alike crossed paths in this bustling city center, visiting the district’s courthouses, temples, government offices, and shops. 
The first site dates to around 600 B.C. but was enlarged by Julius Caesar, Augustus Caesar, Domitian, and Trajan. You will admire them again from the breathtaking terrace of Capitol Hill. 

Our tours require a minimum of 4 attendees

NOTE: Due to Itinerary and Insurance restrictions wheelchairs, stroller . Pets not allowed

The maximum per group is 6. Any group larger will be canceled. Bookings for the same tour on different days will be canceled.

Maria is excellent. She’s so passionate, has a fund of knowledge took us to places in Rome, but we had never imagined. It is truly off the beaten path after having seen all the heritage in ancient city. This is a welcome change, even though we have come to Rome a few times before we have never heard of this trip. Lots of history and lots of things to think about to make the world a better place

We had a great tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny. We learned a lot and saw very beautiful parts of Rome. The group was larger than planned due to illness of the guides, but our guide still did a great job despite that hurdle. Highly recommend.
