Choose a morning or afternoon tour and get picked up by your private guide at your hotel in central Rome to get started.
Begin your tour at the Colosseum, where you'll enjoy skip-the-line access thanks to your guide. Admire the massive amphitheater from the inside, imagining the battles that once took place there. Hear about the lives of the gladiators, the wild animals that were brought in for certain fights, and even the naval battles.
Head down into the underground level of the Colosseum to learn about the maze of rooms where men and beasts waited to be lifted onto the arena floor by ancient elevators to fight. Visit the underground level and the Arena floor of the Colosseum
Continue your tour with a walk to the Roman Forum to hear about this one-time epicenter of the ancient Roman Empire. Walk along the important Via Sacra to see the House of the Vestal Virgins and the Temple of Julius Caesar.
The final stop on the tour is at the Capitoline Hill, one of ancient Rome's seven hills, from which point you'll get one of the best views over the Forum.
