Vad du kommer att göra

Prepare yourself to journey back in time through the 3 most important archaeological sites in Rome: The Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum.

*GLADIATORS. EMPERORS. LEGENDS. MYTHS *

Our experience will begin by the Arch of Constantine next to the Colosseum. After a brief plan of attack and a warm welcome the tour will start.

The first archaeological site we will visit is the Colosseum. Loved by the people of Rome, the Colosseum held bloody battles fought between wild animals and gladiators. Together, we will uncover the incredible story that lead to the creation of the stadium and discuss exactly how this colossal building was made. Most importantly, we will delve into the events that took place in the Colosseum, leaving no stone unturned.

Venturing on, we will head to the Palatine Hill. Famous for being the birthplace of Rome some 2800 years ago, the hill also housed the Emperors and Rome’s elite. Walk in the footsteps of the emperors through the remains of the Palaces and admire views over Ancient Rome and the Colosseum.

Lastly, we will walk down into the Roman Forum, the ancient city centre. We will walk on the very same stones Julius Caesar once did, passing Roman houses, towering temples, triumphal arches, tombes of emperors, and the senate house.

I’m a coffee, gelato and fitness lover from the UK. I’ve been working in Rome since 2015, when I stumbled across the city with Harry on our interrail trip. The rustic alleyways, warm summer nights and incredible food had me hooked - I knew I had to stay here.

I began studying local history straight away, and graduated into working as a tour guide in 2016. It feels crazy to say that was four years ago - it’s flown by.

I’ve found that teaching others through tour-guiding has actually taught me a lot about myself - which makes it a really enjoyable, fascinating job. When I take my guide badge off a few things you might find me doing is running, muay thai kickboxing, watching sunsets, scuba-diving, meeting new people and experiencing new things.

Lets seize the day and explore Rome together.

This was a great tour! It was worth having a guide because there is so much to see that we would have missed on our own. It is surely 2.5 hours of walking. There are bathrooms and water fountains in different areas for your convenience. Our guide, Sonia, has a pleasant demeanor and she remembered our names. She has a passion for history. As an archaeologist, she gave a different perspective which we appreciated. She explained the layers of excavation of the ruins and other places in the city. She did a fantastic job of incorporating the ruins into the greater history of the city, giving both general and religious context. We started our tour at the Arch of Constantine. We went to Palatine Hill, then The Forum, and finished at the Colosseum. Palatine Hill is pretty straight forward. In the Forum, we had the choice to view from ground level or from above. We chose to climb several sets of stairs (not all at once) to view from the top. It was worth it to get a bird's eye view of the Forum and other excavated sites that we wouldn't have seen from ground level. Sonia had artist renderings of the Forum as it was centuries ago. That helped put what we were seeing in perspective. It was a nice touch. Though the tour's description lists the Colosseum first on the list, we went there last. Sonia gave the context for how the Colosseum fit into Roman life. We learned that there was so much more history to the Colosseum than just the gladiator games. Our tour did not include the level beneath the arena floor.

Brilliant guide through the three amazing areas of Ancient Rome. Great story telling with great knowledge and detail of the areas, and how they came to be. Well worth getting a guide, and no need to look any further!

We booked a morning tour which ended up being cancelled on the morning of, due to Colosseum tickets being oversold. However Russ was very quick to inform us of the situation and he kindly gave us the option of either a refund or a rescheduled tour. We chose to join the afternoon tour instead, and it was the best thing that could have happened! While it was very cold and rainy in the morning (in which we probably would not have had the most pleasant time), the afternoon tour was absolutely beautiful. The skies were clear, the sun was out and it definitely made the experience all the more magical on top of the excellent story telling by Federica, a trained art historian who stoked the fires of our imaginations and whisked us back in time. She was funny, knowledgable and resourceful, while the tour was the perfect pace and length. Will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Rome!
