What You Can Expect
As you walk along the wide, symmetrical streets, your guide will point out the neoclassical architecture of that era and tell you about how the project was left incomplete when the World’s Fair was canceled after the start of World War II. Listen to stories about Rome in the 1930s and Mussolini’s notorious reign, and see the Square Colosseum (Colosseo Quadrato, known officially as Palazzo della Civilta del Lavoro), the EUR’s most prominent building with its white marble façade and rows of arches.
Outside the EUR, visit Foro Italico, originally known as Foro Mussolini (Mussolini Forum), a sports complex home to Stadio dei Marmi, a track surrounded by 60 marble statues. You’ll also see the Via dei Fori Imperiali, a road commissioned by Mussolini that connects the Rome Colosseum to Piazza Venezia.
Your tour ends after the drive back to central Rome.
