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.
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.

I provide also #109083 (Colosseum/Forum) and #186735 (Forum/Palatine Hill no Colosseum)

TIPS for a perfect visit:
- Only small backpacks or handbags allowed
- Wear comfortably shoes (uneven and dusty floors)
- Bring a water bottle (plastic, no glass)
- Be aware of the heat (30°C/86°F with high humidity levels in June/July)

IMPORTANT:
Please send me a message BEFORE the booking.
Colosseum tickets for the requested date/hour may be sold out
--> skip the line tickets are valid only for a selected date and timeslot.

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. ***

A Recent Review of this tour

Marisa was an amazing guide! She is very knowledgeable about Rome and specifically the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and Roman Forum. I was a bit jet-lagged having just arrived the day before, but she was patient and let the tour progress at my rate. It was a real treat to be guided by an expert like Marisa through some of the most fascinating sights of the ancient world. Booking this tour with Marisa was the best decision I made on my trip to Rome!
