Full description

Skip the line with a guide on this highlights tour of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine Hill.

Enter the Colosseum through a dedicated group entrance. Follow in the footsteps of gladiators and see the monument from a 360° panoramic vantage point. Imagine what it was like to see 50,000 blood-thirsty spectators with help of your guide. Have the chance to tour the dungeons (if option selected).

Visit the Forum and walk around several important ancient Roman government buildings. Take a step into the past at the Forum Magnum, which was once a bustling marketplace. Learn more about the ancient Roman culture and picture how they lived.

Lorenzo was a very nice tour guide, who seemed to know a lot. He answered all of our questions and took his time. He showed us all the places where we could tap water. Be aware of the cobble stones, it makes it difficult to follow the tour with elderly people or carriers. We had some free time at the Palatine Hill, but unfortunately not at the Colosseum. Other than that, we had a great time and would recommend taking this tour.

Our Guide was called ALESSANDRA .. a very good lady with a nice, interesting and curious way of telling us the history of the Colosseum .. also very good with children because she entertained them with funny and interesting phrases. Thanks for everything we will remember this beautiful day with pleasure! See you soon!

Berk did an excellent job of guiding us. He listened to all of our needs, made sure the audio thing fit, we were always in the shade whenever possible, had water to drink, answered questions and took toilet breaks. This was my first Get your Guide tour and it certainly won't be my last! Thank you Berk!
