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 Roman Forum has a bumpy floor, but there is a shorter itinerary on a ramp. The Palatine Hill floor is totally uneven, so is not suggested for people with walking issues.

Maximum travelers: 6

walking tour of the archaeological area with Marisa


I'm an archaeologist and historian: that's why the complex of the Roman Forum/Palatine HIll is my favourite part of the city. Here you can enter and enjoy a relaxing morning, strolling around the ruins, and you'll be happy to avoid tour groups (mainly interested in the Colosseum).
I've spent years digging in the Roman Forum, and now I'd like to share my love and knowledge with you, for a slow-pace historical walk of the area.
If interested, I can book for the special access at the House of Augustus or the Domus Transitoria.

TIPS for a perfect visit:
- Wear comfortably shoes (uneven and dusty floors)
- Bring a bottle of water (you can refill it during the tour)

Itinerary

- the Roman Forum
- The Palace of Emperors on Palatine Hill
- special openings (on request)

the Colosseum is not included.
If you have in program to visit the site by yourself, the day before/after our tour
