Description

After being picked up from your hotel, begin your day with a visit to two of the most important Archeological Area of Rome.

Walk in the footsteps of giants on this guided tour through the heart of the Roman Empire. Travel back in time, embraced by 360 degrees of jaw dropping Roman architecture. Learn the history behind it all, from the minute to the magnificent.

Contemplate the genius that took the Colosseum from concept to reality in 70/80 AD, centuries before the advent of modern engineering. Once the most famous meeting place in the world, the amphitheater is estimated to have once held 50,000/80,000 spectators.

Your skip the line pass allows you to skip hours of long lines to enter the Colosseum directly. Once inside, breathe in the bloody past of the monument, brought to life by your passionate, expert guide. Standing for nearly two millennia, the structure has been a symbol of both glory and scorn, serving vastly different purposes over the course of history.

Just outside, you'll see the magnificent Arch of Constantine. Continuing the walking tour, discover the excavated ruins of the Roman Forum archaeological site, where many structures remain intact to this day. For a city founded in 753 BC, this is no small feat. Continue exploring the breathtaking Palatine Hill, ending your tour with a deeper connection to the history of Rome and a strong foundation of knowledge to continue exploring Rome.

Before the second part of the tour, enjoy a typical Italian lunch included in the price and then continue the visit to two of the most important Basilicas in the world; the Basilicas of Saint John in Lateran and Saint Mary Major.

The Basilica of Saint John in Lateran is the oldest of Rome's four main basilicas, and is home to the Holy Steps, one of the city's most important pilgrimage sites. From there, head to the Basilica of Saint Mary Maggiore, which houses an amazing collection of historic and religious artifacts. Admire 5th century mosaics and the remarkable Crypt of the Nativity.

Then continue along the historic Appian way with your guide, passing the Chapel of Domine Quo Vadis before arriving at the ancient Roman underground Catacombs. Explore these remarkable subterranean cemeteries, some of which were started in the 2nd century. See amazing historic artwork in the catacombs, and learn about how these underground passageways give a window into the early days of Christianity.
