Overview

The Colosseum and the Roman Forum are two landmarks rarely left off any Rome itinerary, but visitors can spend more time queuing outside than exploring inside. This private 3-hour tour offers skip-the-line access to both, plus a view of the city from Capitoline Hill. Hotel pickup is included.
  • 3-hour private tour of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Capitoline Hill in Rome
  • Avoid the queues with skip-the-line access to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum
  • Take in views of the city from Capitoline Hill
  • Great-value tour includes hotel pickup and entrance fees
  • Choice of morning or afternoon tour
  • This private tour can be customized to your interests and ensures you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide
Your tour begins with an 8.30am or 2pm pickup (depending on option chosen) from your central Rome hotel by your private guide. Set out on foot to explore Rome’s historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage site, starting with a tour of the mighty Colosseum.

Using your skip-the-line tickets, gain instant admission to the grand amphitheater and marvel at the spectacular 60,000-seat arena. As you admire the impressively preserved ruins, listen as your guide brings the Colosseum back to life, telling stories of ancient Roman emperors, gladiator games, and wild beast fights.

Continue to the Roman Forum, the grand centerpiece of ancient Rome, where the remarkably preserved temples, basilicas, and public squares offer a fascinating glimpse into Roman life. While you’re there, hear the story of the Lapis Niger, an ancient Latin text housed in the base of one of the columns in the Forum, and visit the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, once home to the virgin priests of Vesta.

Finally, climb to the top of Capitoline Hill, one of the seven hills of Ancient Rome, and enjoy spectacular views over Rome.

Gianluca was an excellent tour guide with a lot of history knowledge on various areas. We liked the private tour unlike those big bus tours with guides who hold up flags and signs! and having the ability to ask questions and stop whenever we wanted to.... We even stopped in for a nice gelato break where there was a breeze on a hot summer day. I highly recommend the private tour by Eyes of Rome Storytellers!

Fabia was a great tour guide. She was prompt, prepared, personable, and knowledgeable. In my group we are all ages and everyone greatly enjoyed her. The tour was informative and at a good pace. We racially loved the Collesseum!

Our guide, Roberta, was extremely knowledgeable regarding the history of the forum and the colosseum. Every question that we posed, she had answers and knowledge. Her English was extremely good and we could understand her perfectly. She was at out hotel promptly to pick us up and got us a taxi back to the hotel at the end of the tour. I recommend this tour early in the morning because the crowds were not in the forum and they were just beginning at the colosseum. Plus it is very hot in the sun . The tour is a little overpriced, in my opinion, but we enjoyed having a private guide.

Fantastico! Our guide, Maria, was bubbly, fun, and an archaeologist who works on the Forum. Talk about insider's knowledge! She picked us up at our hotel and was a knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide for our entire time together. She made the Colosseum and Forum come to life, showing us the important features and explained how they were used Ancient Rome, what happened to them over time, and the work that has been done to bring them to what we saw that day. She carried visuals and books that showed us what the places looked like in their prime, which helped a great deal. She walked us up to the Palatine Hill, showed us the Circus Maximus, took us through the Forum, and then helped us with suggestions for the rest of our trip. A wonderful, educated guide and we couldn't have been more pleased with this fun and highly informative tour!

This was a highly informative tour. Our guide explained all that was necessary and when we asked him questions he was a mine of information. He collected us from our hotel and showed us exactly where to pick up a taxi to get back again.

Outstanding tour guide, with a wealth of information! The whole concept of The Colosseum is mind boggling by even today's standards.
A must-see for anybody who is in Rome and wants to get a real history feel!
