Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Tour

Private Tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill

I have watched all the movies about Ancient Rome! I have read nearly all the books on the subject. I am just a crazy Roman citizen deeply passionate about the history of my city and of my ancestors. I want to transmit my passion to you!

My love for ancient Rome and my extensive background in history, art and archaeology will reveal to you the true spirit and culture of Ancient Rome.

Our visit  will be intimate and personalized, especially if you have kids and they are studying this subject in school.

We meet just by the Newspaper Agency outside the Metro Station in front of the Colosseum . There is only one exit so you do not have to worry about getting lost.

Our tour starts from the Forum, the heart of the Ancient Roman Empire. It was the political and commercial centre of the city hosting the most important temples, markets and courthouses.

We stop by the Temple of the Divine Caesar, that houses the altar of Julius Caesar, on which the famous dictator was cremated.  Strolling along the original paths of the Forum we  walk on the remaining blocks of the “Via Sacra” or “Sacred Way”, which once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. We are surrounded by majestic temples, awe-inspiring palaces, and magnificent basilicas  built two thousand years ago!

Our tour continues on the Palatine, one of the seven hills of Rome.
Atop this hill the Emperors built their house overlooking the Colosseum, the Circus Maximus and Roman Forum. I take you through a journey back in time visiting the rich villas, gardens, the baths and seeing first hand where the Emperors lived, ruled, and sometimes died assassinated!

Then we visit, the Colosseum, the world’s most famous Arena, where ferocious battles of gladiators and exotic animals entertained the Roman people. Let me provide you a detailed account of this famous landmark, its building techniques, history, traditions and events. Learn all about gladiatorial games and the other popular shows of the Empire.

Discover what is accurate in the movies and what is not, who really Spartacus and Commodus were.

I lend you my eyes to see and EXPERIENCE ANCIENT ROME AS NEVER BEFORE!
