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.

The tour was excellen for the adults allowed to participate. However we booked for 4 adults and 2 children. At the children's booking it did not give a minimum age and, when they appeared in buggies/strollers we were told that they couldn't join the tour and 2 adults had to leave with the 2 children. Apparently this is in the Ts & Cs but this should be highlighted next to where it says children under 14 in the booking section. This ruined the morning for the adults and children who were rejected from joining the tour

Very nice tour. Stefano is a professional licensed guide, that very rare on this Plattform. Very passionate, with sense of humor and gave us some tips where to eat good food and what to visit more. Highly recommend! Don’t pay attention that there are little reviews for this tour, he just registered on this website.
