Learn fascinating facts about Rome's past by visiting the Forum, Palatine Hill, and Colosseum. Tour the first and second levels of the Colosseum with skip-the-line access. Visit the spot where Julius Caesar was buried and the Arch of Titus.

With skip-the-line access to the Colosseum, you can begin your tour of Rome's ancient city. Hear a brief introduction of the Colosseum, its remarkable design, and the reasons it is still regarded as an engineering achievement to this day.

As you enter, pay attention to the Roman numerals above each archway. While your guide tells you about the emperors, gladiators, and famous battles that make the Colosseum Rome's most famous ancient monument, you can explore the first and second levels of the Colosseum.

Walk through the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with your newly acquired knowledge of the ancient Romans. As you learn about Rome's birth and the mythical twins Romulus and Remus, you'll pass by the triumphant Arch of Constantine.
