Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill Tour


What's the best way to explore an archaeological site? With an archaeologist like me, of course!
Come see the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine hill, and I'll show you all the hidden secrets of those fascinating sites. I spent years studying archaeology, and I'm still involved in archaeological research. I have dug in the Roman Forum, and even did my training here and top of the Palatine Hill.
I'll be happy to share what I've learned with you.

Itinerary

We'll meet up in front of the Colosseo metro station (under the tree that's near the green kiosk that's on the right of the exit of the train station)
We will see the beautiful archaeological sights where I worked during my university years and later: the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and the Palatine Hill.
I'll show you the place where I dug (and maybe broke a few things I should not have broken). . . and I'll explain all the main sights of this incredible archaeological area.
