Description

Join a group tour of the Colosseum and let your expert guide amaze you with facts you can’t wait to share with friends at home and memorable tales of the glorious gladiatorial games you’ll never forget!The Colosseum in Rome had over 80 entrances and could accommodate around 50,000 spectators. Learn the history behind this magnificent monument and all that surrounds it. Rome's most popular structure was built for three reasons: as a gift to the Roman citizens from the Flavian Dynasty to increase their popularity, to stage various forms of entertainment, and of course to showcase Roman engineering techniques to the world. Festivals, as well as games, could last up to 100 days in the Colosseum. Your guide will walk you through the Colosseum explaining the true brilliance behind the engineering of this structure and telling you tales of the gladiators that so gallantly entertained hundreds of people.Your tour will then lead you on a journey through the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum where you will be able to admire the incredible ruins and enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum. The Roman Forum was the social, political, religious and financial center of the Roman Empire and the most incredible site of Ancient Roman civilization with various structures still standing. All layers of Roman society rubbed shoulders together daily, whether, for personal, business or political purposes, anyone from homeless beggars to rich senators could be found there. The Palatine Hill is the foundation point of Rome and still holds today, many layers of history. You can find ruins from the early kingdom of Rome, the Roman Republic in the later centuries and the jaw-dropping palace of Emperor Domitian from the Imperial Age. Further, will also see evidence of the more recent presence of the Farnese family during the Renaissance and that of Mussolini in the 20th century.
