Your half-day Ancient Rome experience starts directly in your hotel lobby when your English-speaking driver comes to collect you with a luxury vehicle. *
In Rome private tours we always include pick-up directly at your hotel to ensure that your experience in Rome is totally stress-free! Your driver will take you to meet your wonderful English-speaking licensed guide at the entrance to the Colosseum. She/he will be waiting with skip-the-lines entrance tickets so you can avoid the long lines and enter through the obligatory metal detectors to enjoy you Colosseum private tour.
Now you can experience the incredible history of Rome, the cornerstone of our modern world. Be transported back in time as your guide describes the life and exploits of the Ancient Roman people.
Learn how gladiators and ferocious exotic animals fought their battles surrounded by thousands of spectators in the amazing Colosseum. Tons of photo opportunities as you climb to higher levels for views both inside the Colosseum or over to the Arch of Constantine. To continue your Rome walking tour, your guide will take you to the Forum next door, included on the same ticket.
Here your guide will help you to visualize the leaders of Ancient Roman society gathering in the Roman Forum or perhaps on Capitol Hill. You will be shocked at how you will literally walk straight through history, on streets created 2000 years ago, touching pillars that held up great temples and palaces. This tour is great for history lovers, first time Rome visitors as well as families traveling with kids of all ages.
Important: This is a walking tour that requires a good level of physical fitness as there are lots of steps/stairs, uneven ground, and standing and walking for the duration of the tour is required.
*Please note that if your hotel is in the near vicinity of the Colosseum (5/10 minute easy walk), the guide, instead of the driver, will come to collect you directly at your hotel and you will walk together to the Colosseum entrance.
