Palatine Hill, the Colosseum and the Forum are not only Roman landmarks but also the birthplace of Rome itself. In order to understand the history of the Italian capital, it's essential to visit them and learn about their past. With our expert guides, you'll almost hear the loud bloodthirsty crowds and the sound of gladiators fighting to the death in the Colosseum, as well as the Roman politicians debating economic, military and social reform publicly in the Forum. In Palatine Hill, where the first inhabitants settled, you'll discover the remains of their original tents and houses, now surrounded by the palaces built later when Rome was already the capital of an Empire, as the hill became the favourite location of the wealthiest families.

Itinerary Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill Guided Tour

This tour will take you to discover some of the most emblematic and famous monuments of Rome, Italy and the World.

The Colosseum of Rome is one of the most recognisable monuments worldwide, with its stunning and weathered architecture easily distinguished when looking at the city's skyline. In its galleries and surprisingly well-preserved ruins, you'll learn about the history of the building, from its construction to its different uses throughout the years, and stand in the same place where emperors, politicians and wealthy families stood centuries ago. The Colosseum was the stage for bloody battles between gladiators and animals brought in from different countries, loved by the Roman crowds despite their extremely violent nature. As well as an architectonic masterpiece, this is a place where many significant events took place, masses would gather and some people lost their lives, and this past can almost be felt when walking through its corridors and gates.

The Roman Forum once was the city's focal point, where all the relevant historic figures used to spend time socialising, debating or simply relaxing. Our guides will explain the relevance this location had at the time, as well as its origins so that you can imagine what it would have looked like on a busy day in ancient Rome. Senators, merchants, aspiring politicians...everyone who wanted to become a relevant figure in society came to the Forum, making it the perfect scenario to recreate the lifestyle of the Romans centuries ago. If you've ever wanted to feel like a powerful senator, this is your opportunity!

Last but not least, Palatine Hill, the most famous out of the seven hills of Rome and, according to the myth, where the Capitoline Wolf lived. Not only does the location have an unimaginable archaeological value, it also has a certain aura, perhaps a result of all the historic events it has witnessed. Rich families built their homes here during the golden times of the Roman Empire, and because of it, the palaces that stood here were very luxurious. If the Colosseum made you feel like a gladiator and the Forum made you feel like a senator, here you will feel like a rich patrician.

This three hour tour, with an English-speaking guide, of Classical Rome is undoubtedly the best way to begin to understand the Eternal City.
