Full description

See the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill on a guided tour of all 3 attractions. Learn all about everyday Roman life, the Colosseum’s gory history, and the city’s rumored founding hill.

After entering the Colosseum, tour the amphitheater as your guide brings history to life. Visit the normally off-limits arena floor and imagine the roaring crowds from the gladiators’ perspective.

Next up, visit the Roman Forum, the epicenter of Roman political, religious, and social life. Home to the Temple of Julius Caesar and Roman Senate, it was full of grand, classical architecture and a marketplace.

Then walk up to Palatine Hill, the reputed birthplace of Rome and the centremost of the Seven Hills of Rome. Discover one of the most ancient parts of the city. Enjoy panoramic views of Rome from here, including exceptional views over the Roman Forum and Colosseum.

Our guide Jaber was great. Super informative, interesting, and was a very nice person. Did the tour and also gave us free time in between so we could take pictures and see this for ourselves. He was fantastic and definitely deserves the 5 stars. Love it when people are super passionate about what they do and do a great job at it.

Lovely guide on a long afternoon. Very fun and informative with a pit stop at the arena floor, heads up this only means you go through a different gate and see the Colosseum as the gladiators would, not the tunnels and dungeons. Still fun and learned some Italian along the way :)

We started with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill before entering the Arena. It was a long walk but it's worth it. We had the Forum & Palantine Hill all to ourselves as it was still early. Fabio, our guide was well versed and it's fun and interesting to listen to his stories. We enjoyed the tour.
