What to Expect
Meet your guide in front of the Trajan Column, introduce yourself and share your personal preferences, and your private guide will then tailor the tour just for you. 

On this 3-hour program your guide will provide an overview of Roman history from the first days of a village of shepherds up to the time of ancient world domination. The column in honor of the emperor Trajan is the perfect departure point for your historical adventure.

Walk to the Forum of Caesar, learning why he was universally known as the first modern leader. See the Forum of Augustus and listen to his incredible story, and how he eliminated the hated Marc Antony and the charming queen Cleopatra.

See the recently reassemble Vespasian Temple of Peace, before reaching the immense amphitheater built during the Flavian dynasty.

Enter the Coliseum with your skip-the-line admission ticket. You're finally inside the famous bloody theater, and it’s time to hear stories and historical details of the executions, the gladiator fight shows, and the behavior of the spectators.

When you leave the Coliseum, you’ll climb up the Palatine Hill. Walk into the palace of the emperors and see the immense and first palace ever built. Visit the Antiquarium Museum and admire the statues, stuccos, and mosaics that decorated the houses. See the village of  Romulus, the founder of Rome, and learn about Rome's first days. Enjoy the stunning view of modern Rome from the top of the hill.

Head downhill and stop to see the Arch of Titus and the detail showing Jewish slaves and the menorah coming into Rome defeated.

You're now in the Roman Forum area, the oldest square of Roman civilization. You’ll be introduced to the many temples, the House of the Vestal Virgins, the civil basilicas, and the curia.

You’ll then climb up the Capitoline Hill, where the tour ends, and your guide will leave you on your own to enjoy the views.
