Discover the Colosseum with an Archaeologist
This tour covers the most important archaeological sites in Rome: the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine hill.
We start at the Colosseum where we will enter the building from a priority access dedicated to the skip the line tickets. After the security check, we will explore the ground and the first floor of the most famous Roman building.
You will be transported back to the time of the construction, when the Colosseum was the seating of the gladiatorial combats. You will discover how the Colosseum functioned in the Roman time and what used to happen in the building over the course of time, until the latest restoration works that are still in progress.
All your questions will be welcomed.
The second step is the Palatine hill, the place where Emperors lived, where we will talk about the Imperial Palace and where I'll lead you to one of my favourite picture spots in Rome.
The tour will end in the Roman Forum, the political center of the ancient Rome and its oldest public square
- Roman Forum
- Palatine Hill
I will be happy to recommend you one of my favourite restaurants in the area of the Colosseum for a great local meal after the tour. Good food is essential to have a real and great taste of Italy.
