What was Rome like 2000 years ago?
It was a metropolis of 2 million inhabitants, with richly decorated and colorful streets, state-of-the-art aqueducts, fountains, restaurants, temples and places to have fun.
Can we still see these things? Of course we can! With a little help from our imaginations, I will make the ruins come alive and leave you with a completely new perspective of the ancient Roman city.

We will start our tour with the Colosseum, the symbol of our city. Next, we will walk through the Roman forum where you will get to know the ancient Romans, through their stories in addition to the most important information about their art and history of course. We will discover together how modern they actually were…maybe we haven't changed so much after all!
