Make your way to the Colosseum metro station, where this tour begins. Join a group of up to 12 people, then skip the Colosseum line and go directly into the site for a guided tour of the largest amphitheater ever built. See the arena and the seating levels of the Colosseum as your guide shares anecdotes about gladiatorial combat and ancient Roman entertainment, then continue into the nearby forum.
Get your bearings to ancient life in the Roman Forum, a large rectangle that’s surrounded by government buildings, temples, and landmarks. See the Arch of Constantine, the largest surviving Roman triumphal arch, then take in the Senate House, where ancient senators ruled the empire.
Visit the Temple of Julius Caesar, the House of the Vestal Virgins, Basilicas, and the Golden Mile as you learn about the dramatic battles, emperors, leaders, and rebellions that defined life in the Roman Empire. See the Temple of Concord and the Temple of Saturn, the oldest surviving temple in the Roman Forum, which stands at the foot of Capitoline Hill.
