Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. I use books and images to interest kids, and they love vivid stories about gladiators and Romans! :)
I wouldn't recommend a stroller, the road is bumpy. Please write me before the booking if you have kids under 7, I can suggest you a shorter tour.

Friendly: No.
The Colosseum has a lift for those using a mobility device, so we can visit the first and second floor. The Roman Forum has a bumpy floor, there is a shorter itinerary on a ramp. Please send me a message before the booking even if you have problems walking for hours.

Maximum travelers: 6

Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum with an archaeologist


Extensive tour of the Ancient Rome, perfect for history lovers and good walkers. (Book my basic tour #109083 for a less-detailed tour)

I've designed this tour to be a journey through the ages to discover the history of the Roman Empire, admiring its majestic remains. We'll talk about facts, myths and legend of the Ancient Rome, exploring the Colosseum, Palace of Emperors on the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum.

TIPS for a perfect visit:
- Only small backpacks or handbags allowed
- Wear comfortably shoes (uneven and dusty floors)
- Bring a bottle of water
- Be aware of the heat (30°C/86°F with high humidity levels in June/July)
- Suggested start to beat crowds: 8. 30 am or 3 pm

IMPORTANT:
Please send me a message before the booking so I can confirm tickets availability:
--> Colosseum tickets are subjected to availability and valid only for the selected date and timeslot.

Itinerary

The itinerary can change depending from the meeting point and the starting time:

- Colosseum (no underground chambers)
- Roman Forum
- Palatine Hill

IMPORTANT INFOS for the COLOSSEUM
**Please note that big backpacks, pepper spray and knives are NOT ALLOWED inside the Colosseum. (small backpacks and handbags OK) **

**All visitors must comply with the security checks at the entrances. This check may cause long lines and delais on our schedule, even with prebooked tickets. The guide is NOT responsible for this issue. **

***I do NOT provide private tours of the underground chambers.
The visit must be booked separately, it's a group tour and for its duration (1. 30 h) is not compatible with my tour. ***

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: At the exit of the "Colosseo" subway station at groundfloor, in front of the monument (see photos #4 and #5).
On request, I can meet you at the hotel and we can take together a taxi.

End location: At Roman Forum exit
I will give you all the instructions to reach your hotel or the nearest taxi station.

Duration: 3 hours 30 min.

-Timing may change depending on your pace and level of interest
- Afternoon tour is available only from April to October.
-This tour is totally outdoor.
Tour is provided even in case of light rain since we can use umbrellas and raincoats.
In case of a thunderstorm we can choose together to change the itinerary and do a museum/church instead of the Forum.

A Recent Review of this tour

Had an excellent time with Marisa. Her knowledgable + sense of humor made for a very enjoyable 3.5 hrs. She answered all our questions about Ancient Rome in addition to many general ones. Her pace up and down the stairs and hills was great for 4 x 60 yr olds on a warm Sept day. Our first tour with Tours by Locals. Impressed throughout the reservation process thru today. Marisa was in contact with us several times since making our reservation to ensure all went smooth. Recommend her and Company highly.
