Choose this Colosseum Private Tour and explore the Colosseum, the archaeological area of the Roman Forum and the panoramic Palatine Hill. Whether you are traveling solo, as a couple, or with family and friends this tour will be the highlight of your trip to Rome!

Treat yourself with a 3-hour walking tour to learn all about the history and the legends of Rome, the Eternal City. All of our guides are experts in history and archeology and know the Colosseum like the back of their hands. The best thing about a private tour is being able to negotiate the pace with your guide, and to be free to ask all the questions you want to understand more of what you're seeing.

Your Private Guided Tour of Ancient Rome will start when you meet your guide at a convenient location near the Colosseum. Afraid you’ll waste your precious vacation time standing in line? Not with this tour, thanks to our pre-purchased skip-the-line tickets. Once inside you will walk around the edge of the oval building over two floors, while your guide will bring the past of Rome back to life - you will hear tales and legends about how and why the Colosseum was built and learn about the many events that here took place almost 2,000 years ago, entertaining both the elite and the masses. Your guide will cover the cruel battles between gladiators and their fights against different kinds of animals: lions, tiger, leopards, elephants, bears, dears and even camels were brought up to the Arena floor to be used as preys in the “venationes” (Latin for ‘hunts’)

Now that you are an expert about the Colosseum it is time to climb the Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome. The Palatine is an amazing location to admire the Roman Forum from above and catch a glimpse of the Circus Maximus, where Romans held exciting chariot races. No wonder noble Roman families chose this hill to build their sumptuous residences!

Your guide will then escort you to the Roman Forum - you will walk on the very same roads trodden upon by none others than Julius Caesar, Augustus and many other Emperors and important characters in Rome's history. Forums were the the political, social, religious and economic centre of the city - this is why here you'll admire the remains of several temples, arches, palaces and churches, which brilliantly passed the test of time up to today.
