Heroic gladiators battling to the death, regal emperors issuing decrees, orphaned twins who founded a civilisation Ancient Rome sounds pretty cool. On this 3 hours semi-private tour welcoming up to 12 guests, your knowledgeable guides will take you there to experience what it was like to be plebeian many centuries ago, except, unlike other plebians, you'll get to skip the lines at these sights.
Standing next to the Colosseum, the world's largest amphitheatre, you'll feel the energy and excitement that ancient Romans must have felt as they entered to watch gladiators and vicious beasts fight to the death. Your guide will take you inside the massive arena and reveal the history and secrets behind this iconic Roman landmark that has wowed visitors for ages.
Then move to The Forum, the centre of, well, everything in Ancient Rome. A place of worship, celebration, of law, this was the most important place in the ancient world. Explore the Temple of Vesta while learning about the birth of the Republican governor over two millennia ago. After a healthy dose of history, move uphill for a bit of mythology at the Palatine Hill, the most central and historical of Rome's seven hills. Gaze across the city and hear how all of it began with just two twin brothers and a she-wolf many centuries ago on that very spot where you will be standing. By the end, you'll feel like a part of Ancient Rome, despite the 2000 or so years that have passed.
Make your own way to the meeting point: Right outside Squisito Cook Cafe, Largo Agnesi, 1, on the top terrace across the street from the Colosseum. Look for a Babylon Tours/Together in Rome sign.
