    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

    This skip-the-line tour is perfect for those who find themselves fascinated by the intriguing occurrences of the Ancient world and the remnants of that bygone era which still remain visible to this day.

    As one of the most iconic structures in the world, the Colosseum is a vital destination for everyone visiting Rome. On this tour you will learn all about its secrets and hear stories about the gladiators who fought there and the emperors and citizens who watched.

    Equally important to see are the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, which once formed the very heart of the city. Walking through the remains of the residences of emperors, temples and triumphal arches, you will learn all about the history of the Ancient city. The Palatine Hill is where the illustrious Romulus is supposed to have started the construction of his city, and from where the great empire to-be grew.
