Ancient Rome Half-Day Walking Tour



Duration: 3 hours
Introduction:

Visit the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Capitoline Hill and Rome's 'centro storico' (historical center) on this must-do Ancient Rome tour! The 3-hour Rome walking tour offers the perfect introduction to the city's tumultuous history. Hear tales of gruesome gladiator combat while exploring the Colosseum's second and third tiers; learn about monuments like the Regia inside the Roman Forum; and enjoy photo stops at Rome's big-name attractions such as Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and more! Choose between a standard tour (maximum 25 people) or a small-group tour (maximum 12 people) for a more personalized experience.

Entrance fees to the Colosseum and Roman Forum are not included on this tour; simply pay on the day.

Your Rome half-day tour starts near the Colosseum. After paying your entrance fee to the iconic attraction, head inside to explore the second and third tiers of the Roman amphitheater with your guide. Hear how seating was allocated to social status, with the Emperors and senators enjoying the best seats in the house, and plebeians toward the top. The stadium's gladiatorial contests were its main attraction, and you'll hear tales of the gory games where trained gladiators would fight each other for the amusement of the crowds.

After your Colosseum tour, set off to explore the surrounding area, discovering places that once represented the financial, commercial and political center of Ancient Rome. The main relics and ruins are clustered throughout the Roman Forum, so head inside to wander seeing history set in the site's stones. Entrance fees are at your own expense.

Hear fascinating tales about the power and treachery associated with the Emperors of Ancient Rome while seeing the ruins of once-important monuments like the Temple of Caesar. Stop for photos by the white marble Arch of Septimius Severus, and gaze in wonder at the colonnaded Regia - once the home of the Kings of Rome. Other highlights include the Gemonian stairs and Temple of Vespasian and Titus.

Leave the Roman Forum and walk to Capitoline Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome. Stroll around Piazza del Campidoglio, a square designed by Renaissance artist Michelangelo, and gaze down at the sights of Ancient Rome.

Continue into Rome's centro storico, to see all the sights around its historical center. Throw a coin in the impressive Trevi Fountain for luck, and then pose for photos in front of Rome Pantheon - one of the best-preserved Roman monuments in the city. Stroll around Piazza Navona, a lively central square, and learn about Bernini, a much-celebrated Baroque sculptor who designed three of the square's fountains. Your Ancient Rome half-day walking tour then finishes in the center of town.

Please note: Rome's Trevi Fountain is currently under restoration until late 2015. A walkway above the central portion of the fountain will allow you to catch a glimpse of the ongoing work. Water will be drained during the process, but you'll still be able to cast your coins into the fountain for luck.
