Full Day

Full Day Guided Tour Rome

The guided tour of Rome begins with the Colosseum, the largest amphitheater in the world, which Unesco included in the list of World Heritage Sites in 1980.
Its construction began in 72 after Christ and ended eight years later. Able to hold between 50,000 and 75,000 spectators, it was in use until 523 AD.
Your guide, during the guided tour of Rome, will tell you about the daring architectural techniques with which it was built. And it will introduce you to the world of gladiators, the mythical fighters who dueled in the arena: it seems that this type of duels was born in the Ancient Greece at private funeral ceremonies, and that the Romans have turned them also in followed public performances.

The next stop, guided tour of Rome, is the Palazzo dei Cesari, on the Palatine Hill from which derives the name palatium, in Italian Palazzo.

The tour of Rome ends with the visit of the Roman Forum that in the archaic period were a necropolis and then transformed in the heart of Rome with its temples, its basilicas, the Curia and the Domus of the Pontiff maximum.
