Overview

You never want to spend hours waiting in line during your time in Rome. Instead, make the most of your precious vacation days on a small-group tour of Ancient Rome, which includes skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum. In addition to avoiding lines often in excess of three hours, you’ll take a guided tour of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill and receive personalized attention in an intimate group limited to 13.

What to Expect

Your tour begins at a designated meeting point in central Rome, where you’ll greet your guide and small group and head to your first historic location: the Roman Forum. Explore the ruins of palaces commissioned by Roman emperors and take in panoramic city views from the summit of Palatine Hill.

Then, you’ll head straight to the Colosseum, bypassing lines often in excess of three hours with a skip-the-line admission ticket. Once inside, you’ll have VIP access to the arena floor of the Colosseum, a space usually off limits to members of the public. Headsets are provided to ensure you hear your guide’s commentary clearly.

In our opinion, this Guide's English was not good enough to be giving English-speaking tours. Sentences weren't completed as she tried to grasp for words but could not find them, and a lot of meaning was lost. I felt that I could have learned more...More

We did not have to wait in the line to purchase tickets, we did have to go through a quick security line, as does everyone.
