What You Can Expect

Rome Super Saver: Colosseum and Ancient Rome with Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour

Rome Pantheon

Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour
Your day of sightseeing starts near the Colosseum, where you’ll meet your guide and take a walk up Oppian Hill for a view of the amphitheater, perhaps Rome’s most iconic symbol. Then walk back down and enter the Colosseum with your skip-the-line ticket, allowing you to jump the main entrance queue and go straight inside. Explore the first two levels of the arena, listening to brutal stories about the gladiator battles and other bloody events that once took place here.

Exiting the Colosseum, walk over to the Roman Forum, stopping by the Arch of Constantine on the way. Then walk up Palatine Hill for more views of the ruins before your 3-hour tour ends on Via Sacra, the street that connects Capitoline Hill to the Colosseum.

At this point, you have about two hours of free time to get some lunch and explore on your own before the second part of your Super Saver begins (lunch is at your own expense).

Best of Rome Walking Tour
In the afternoon, your 3-hour walking tour starts at Piazza di Spagna, where you’ll meet your guide and set off around Rome’s historical center. Admire the famous Spanish Steps, which lead up to the Trinita dei Monti church, and then walk to the Trevi Fountain, perhaps Rome’s most famous fountain, known for its legend that states if you throw a coin in the water, you will return to Rome someday.

Continue to the square that ancient Romans considered to be the center of the city, Piazza Colonna, and then visit the stately Pantheon. Walk through lively Piazza Navona, where street artists show off their talents and visitors mingle around the baroque fountains, before ending your tour at another popular square, Campo de’ Fiori.

I cannot recommend these tours enough. Both of our guides were amazing! Their knowledge was faultless and their humour perfect! Flat comfy shoes are a must but if you want to see and learn about the very best bits of Rome then you cannot do any better than these tours! I would go back and do it all again tomorrow!

Best of Rome afternoon walking Tour with Maristella
-It was a good experience and chance for us to explore the old streets of Rome but some lapses were observed. She was talking too much and there was overload of info. She could have just picked up interestig facts especially that it was already crowded and too many places to pass by. Nevertheless, kt was a good tour.

It was a very good tour and the guides were also excellent, we saw all the sites we wanted to and heard lots of interesting facts, just make sure you are prepared for a very long day as we were still walking after 5.30pm and if it is hot it would probably be too much.

One of the best tours. Our guide was a Roman Archaeologist so the historical details he provided were spectacular and delivered with a lot of passion. Very full day but well worth it.

Amazing tour of ancient Rome and the area ruins. Everywhere you walk there are old buildings or pieces of them, Rome is truly breathtaking. Lots of walking with very knowledgeable guides. I could have easily spent the remainder of the day exploring the Roman ruins and skipped the afternoon tour. We only stayed for a portion of the afternoon walking tour because by then we were beat, and the tour went right by our hotel at dinner time so it seemed like a good time to rest our tired feet : You will hear the guide better if you bring our own headset because the earbuds that are provided are not a very good quality.
