Skip the Line Private Tour: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Art History Walking Tour

Skip the Line: Private Ancient Rome and Colosseum Walking Tour

Your three-hour private walking tour begins atop the Colle Oppio with a panoramic view of the Roman Forum and Colosseum, Rome's most recognizable landmark. From here you will skip the long lines with special access to the Colosseum.

Once inside the Colosseum, you will hear about the amphitheater's bloody past as you listen to tales of gladiators, mock sea-battles and executions. After a brief rest at the Arch of Constantine, you will arrive at the Palatine Hill, the most famous of the seven hills of Rome. From here you can admire the magnificent views of the Roman Forum and Nero's Circus Maximus where chariot races were held.

The last stop on your private walking tour is a stroll along the Via Sacra or 'Sacred Way', the main path through the Roman Forum that was used for triumphal processions.

This in-depth private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum is hosted by an English-speaking guide specializing in art history. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so they can prepare for your private tour.
