    Description

    In our half-day walking tour of the archaeological sites of the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and Colosseum, you will discover the layers of history, politics and civilisation that have been unearthed by generations of archaeologists in the century and a half since Italy became a nation.

    Our in-depth tour, with a local professional guide, licenced and experienced in archaeology and ancient history, brings the ancient world to life, with vivid descriptions of the historical events that transpired more than 2000 years ago, and how everyday Roman citizens went about their daily lives. Your guide will not only tell you what we know about Ancient Rome, but will tell you how we make inferences from the evidence left behind in the stones, columns and monuments that have survived the centuries.

    Beginning at the Colosseum, a stadium built for the entertainment and control of the Roman “mob”, your guide will enthral you with behind the scene details of the gladiator games, executions, animal hunts and sea battles that took place in this and similar arenas, and the political events that led to its construction by the Flavian dynasty of emperors.

    The Roman Forum was the scene for triumphal parades, political speeches and important funerals, but it was also a place for doing business for Rome’s citizens. It was the centre of Roman life, and your guide will regale you with stories that will encapsulate all its grandeur and importance, as you stand in the very centre of the Roman world.

    The Palatine Hill looked over the Roman Forum, and it was no accident that the elite ruling class of Rome resided there, eventually becoming home to the Emperors, who built such large residences that the word “palace” takes its name from the hill. Another reason for the importance of this hill was its legendary connection with the birth of Rome. A visit to the Palatine Hill is a must if you want to understand how the Romans felt about their city.

    This is not a standard “see the sights and take a photograph” tour. This is a tour which will take you to greater depths than others, in which you will gain real insight into what Rome was like when this area was flourishing. your guide, who will leave no stone unturned (pun intended!) in ensuring that by the end of the tour, you have a deep understanding of the lives of the Romans.
