Our Ancient Rome walking private tour with professional guide will lead you in the heart of civilization and culture of the Roman Empire. The Colosseum is considered as the symbol of the greatness of Rome all over the world, it was the vital center for the Romans and stadium of the historical battles of the gladiators. Known as the greatest amphitheater of the world, with a capacity of over 50.000 spectators, it is the image of whole Italy. You will continue with the Roman Forum, a series of monumental plazas built among the 46 B.C and the 113 A.D. The Roman Emperors wanted the Forum to be built in order to testify their power and greatness. The largest one, the Trajan’s Forum, was the citizens’ market, here in a large square framed by columns, was the Basilica Ulpia and the colossal equestrian statue of the emperor. Go on with the visit crossing the valley of the Imperial Forum and reaching the Palatine Hill, you will see an incredible set display in front of you: thanks to the detailed guide description you will be able to imagine how the Romans lived back to 2.000 years ago, their everyday life and troubles, walking throguh temples, columns and arcs of triumph erected for their gods. From the Forum you’ll continue toward the place where everything began: the Palatine Hill. This hill, near the river, is a museum open to the public that can be visited during the day entering from St. Gregory Street or from the Imperial Forum. The Palatine Hill represents the birth of Rome beacuse here Romolo founded the city and it was the house of all the emperors.

      Our tour guide Stefania was absolutely fantastic. She was one of the people who did some of the excavations around the Colosseum during her studies and truly knows and loves the area including the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Her storytelling was exuberant and her wealth of information is above and beyond that of the tour. She even helps you remember what she had previously told by asking great questions throughout the tour ensuring you walk away amazed

      Patricia tenía un conocimiento excelente de todas la historia y habló el inglés impecablemente. Ella quería hablar esa lengua a pesar de que nosotros también comprendiéramos un poquito de italiano . Ella nos dio una riqueza de informaciones sobre las exquisiteces históricas,además, ella requirió tiempo para fomentar preguntas.
