Ancient Rome Half-Day Walking Tour

See the sights of the Roman Forum on this exciting Rome walking tour!

After meeting your guide, your half-day Rome walking tour start by entering the Colosseum (entrance fees on this tour are at your own expense; you’ll pay on the day of the tour).

With your guide, explore the second and third levels of this legendary amphitheatre, learning interesting facts such as how seats were assigned according to social class. You’ll also hear about the gruesome gladiator games, the Colosseum’s main attraction that provided much entertainment to the crowd. Then follow your guide back outside to walk around the neighboring streets, where the commercial and political center of ancient Rome once stood.

Head to the Roman Forum (entrance at own expense), where you’ll check out historic ruins such as the Temple of Caesar and listen to stories about the power and backstabbing that went on during this period of Roman history. Other sites you’ll see include the Arch of Septimius Severus, the colonnaded Regia, the Gemonian stairs and the Temple of Vespasian and Titus.

From here, walk to Capitoline Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome, to admire the Michelangelo-designed Piazza del Campidoglio, and then continue to Rome’s historic center (centro storico) to see well-known attractions like the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Check out the square’s three fountains designed by famous baroque sculptor Bernini before your tour ends here, the perfect central location from which you can continue exploring Rome on your own.

This tour was lead by Mariana of Enjoy Rome tours. She made touring of the Colosseum and Forum and the other parts of Rome interesting and fun with the extensive knowledge that she has of the history of the city of Rome.

Office address (meeting point) on Viator was not correct; the correct address is Via Tommaso Grossi 10. It was not that easy to find for the taxi driver. 3,5 hours walking was a lot, but very worthwhile. Renate from Russia was very good explaining and was very nice and attentive to the needs of all.
