Take a one-of-a-kind walking tour of Rome's iconic landmarks, including the Colosseum and arena floor, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. Your local guide will show you hidden aspects of these famous Italian landmarks and tell you about their long history.

Take a guided tour of the Roman Forum as a start. In the Forum, the city's political, social, and religious heart, you can see the ruins of temples, public buildings, and the Vestal Virgins' sacred home. Learn about political dramas and the routine of people who lived more than 2,000 years ago.

After that, head to Palatine Hill, where Romulus decided to build his new city, which later housed the powerful and wealthy during the Republic.

In the end, get to the famous Colosseum. Through the gladiators' gate, enter the arena floor, and imagine what it was like for them to emerge in front of thousands of noisy spectators. Look down into the dungeons from the arena, where the gladiators prepared for the competition and kept wild animals.

Our guide was Lorenzo, very knowledgeable guide, took us almost 4 hours on his wonderful tour around archeology area, palatine hill and colosseum. This was perfect tour to meet and understand this part of Rome and get to know a lot about history. Highly recommended for visitors

We found the whole experience very pleasant. The meeting point was convenient and easy to find. The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. We preferred the Colosseum part of the experience more than the forum part but that was just personal preference and why we had booked the tour in the first place. We learned some things we'd never known before and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

Laura L. Was great! Super knowledgeable, nice and funny. She related history to current times. She made everything easy to understand and had great photos to share of what the original buildings looked like. She kept if fresh and friendly while keeping historical accuracy at the forefront. She helped us navigate to the lift so we could get to the top floor of the Colloseo. And she told us the actual name of the building!

The tour and guide were great and entertaining. The guide had a good knowledge of the three areas and helped us to avoid the crowds. The tour included the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and ended in the Forum, quite a bit of walking but it was interesting and well presented. The guide stopped us regularly to suggest photograph locations and for water stops... which was helpful.

The tour was great and walked through a lot of historical sites of Rome. Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and explained in depth about various parts of the history of Rome + archeological sites and such. I would recommend this tour, very cool and informative!

Loved this tour, our guide Francesco was very knowledgable and friendly, he gave us a good overview of the history of the colosseum, the forum and the politics of ancient Rome without leaving us overloaded with information. Joining instructions were simple and it was well organised. Only downside was the tour size of 10 was exceeded (13 were on the tour rather then the 10 advertised), and the guides were freelancers rather then employees of the company. We still had a wonderful time and would do this tour again!

The colosseum is something amazing to see. So rich in history and a definite must if you’re in Rome. Overall, our guide was good and very knowledgeable as he used to be an archeologist working on the site, however , he did speak a bit too fast and our ear pieces kept getting interference with other guides. Aside from that, an awesome activity for sure.

Thoroughly enjoyable tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Tour guide was knowledgeable but struggled to answer any questions which were additional to her tour information. Thank God for Google. Roman forum was lovely. Just a shame that once the tour was finished and we were left to explore the Roman Forum by ourselves, the place was closing. So we had to exit with loads still to see. Never the less I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and well worth the ticket price.

It was a good tour, but it's really not just a Colloseum tour. Was more like an hour on Palatine Hill, an hour at the Forum and 30 minutes at the Colloseum - partly due to issues with security for one of the group. We did end in the Colosseum though and could stay as long as we wanted afterwards. Having done Pompeii the week before with an archaeologist guide, we had a good understanding of Roman times which was useful. Being in Rome itself is overwhelming so it's nice to just follow a guide a round and look at a few bits and get some chat. No idea how much queue time we saved by using the group fast track - groups enter at a different gate than non-groups and we never saw the queue on the other side. It was all efficient and quick for the tours though - but don't bring a scooter for your kid as it won't get in!
