Admire the view from the Arena and the Best of the Archeological Area of Rome.


My studies and Degree at Rome University gave me an overall view of Roman History, from pre-historical to contemporary times, which I like to share with my guests. We'll meet by the Colosseum (Metro B line named Colosseo, by the newspapers kiosk) and I'll have the skiptheline tickets (to be refunded cash). Have ID cards or passports with you. I'll be holding a sign with your name on. Together we are going to reach the VIP no line entrance gate and start the visit from the Arena (the stage). The Colosseum is the symbol itself of the power of Imperial Rome. We'll talk about the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire. Later we'll reach the Palatine Hill where everything started and where we'll enjoy the most amazing views over the Circus Maximus (one side) and by the other side over the Roman Forum, the ancient city center all built for public use: elections, speeches and trials, everything happened here! And from the Forum the Romans departed to conquer the entire known world

A Recent Review of this tour

Sergio was extremely timely in responding to our our enquiries even before we appointed him as our guide. He is very humours and knowledgable in the history of Romans. He is physically fit. Despite having literally walked with us for some 8 hours, he was still full of energy and patient in answering our questions along the trip.
