Leaving the public square designed by Michelangelo, set off for the Roman Forum, following a path of the original cobblestone road. Your guide shares the history of Julius Caesar while you explore the valley and its archaeological ruins, today an open-air museum filled with triumphal arches, statues, fountains, temples, and basilicas.
Leaving the Roman Forum, you will reach Palatine Hill, which towers over the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus, once the home of emperors and the site of temples. Discover its myths and legends with your guide.
