Details

Kid Friendly: Yes.

Friendly: Yes.
The Colosseum has a lift for those using mobility devices such as wheelchairs. Anyway note that the Forum area is not easy to visit using a wheelchair. There is an access ramp, but this will only get you a few metres down into the centre of the 'archaeological area'. All surrounding areas are either rough terrain or, if paved, are bumpy and veined with gaps between stones.

Maximum travelers: 6

explanation

English (fluent), Italian (fluent)

Colosseum, Arch of Constantine, Roman Forum, Capitoline Hill, Imperial Fora, Trajan's Column


This private tour is a perfect introduction to the most famous Imperial Rome's attractions: the world's wonder Colosseum, Roman Forum and Imperial Fora.

Walking through the centuries on the same footsteps of the Caesars, we will start from the majestic COLOSSEUM, during the centuries interpreted as the allegory of the Imperial Rome.

After visiting the Colosseum we will take a pleasant stroll to the valley of the ROMAN FORUM, pulsing heart of the Roman Empire, where, walking along the "Sacred Way" used for triumphal processions, we will explore temples, basilicas, commemorative arches and the Julius Caesar's Temple!

NOTE: If you prefer a comprehensive tour, I recommend you the "Ancient Rome Deluxe Tour" - 4 hrs & 30 minutes- (#61512).

ADMISSION TICKETS/RESERVATION FEES are NOT included because for the under 18 years old the admission is FREE OF CHARGE (there are only 2 € for the reservation "Skip the line" fee)

Itinerary

> Colosseum (inside: 1st and 2nd tier)

> Roman Forum

* Arch of Septimius Severus
* Temple of Romulus
* Temple of Antonino and Faustina

IMPORTANT: Please note that for security reasons big backpacks, luggages, glass bottles, spray and knifes are NOT ALLOWED inside the Colosseum. At the Colosseum entrance every tourist, ONE BY ONE, is scanned with a metal detector. Therefore, although I provide Colosseum "VIP skip the line tickets", the security checks should cause delays and lines.

**The guide is NOT responsible for this issue**.

RECOMMENDED STARTING TIMES: From May to September I recommend you as starting time 3 or 4 pm to minimize the queue at the Colosseum entrance for the security checkpoint and to beat the heat during the summer time.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was our second tour with Dino on this trip, and it was perhaps even more amazing than the first. He is so incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and good at sharing his knowledge with visitors. I can't imagine visiting these locations without this kind of expert guide.
