Overview

Ancient Rome and Colosseum Small Group Tour is specifically designed for anyone looking for a comprehensive tour of the most important archaeological sites of Rome, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, and a visit to the symbol of Rome, the Colosseum.

Book our Ancient Rome and Colosseum Small Group Tour to visit the most important archaeological area in the Eternal City.

The tour will be in a small group of average 20 people, led by one of our English-speaking guides.

Our licensed guides will reveal all the history and secrets behind the ruins and buildings of Ancient Rome that you stumble upon during your walk. It will be like a journey through time!

Thanks to our pre-purchased skip-the-line tickets you will enter the Colosseum, also known as Amphitheatrum Flavium, without waiting in line!

Once inside, the guide will describe the gladiator battles, their combat techniques and traditions. You will learn about everything that took place inside this spectacular building: how it was built, what it was used for and how it survived until now.

Your second stop will be the Roman Forum. The Forum played a crucial role in the life of the Romans since all the important events used to take place here. Many ruins, columns, buildings and temples survived the test of time, but only with a guide will you be able to really understand their original uses and importance.

Your last stop will be the Palatine Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome. It is believed that this hill was very important for the Romans. Legend says that a she-wolf (“Lupa”) found two twins, Romulus and Remus, in a basket floating on the river Tiber. She decided to save them and hide them in a cave just on the Palatine Hill. Once grown up Romulus founded the city of Rome, supposedly in 753 B.C. During the Imperial Era, the Palatine became the location of choice for Emperors and rich Romans who built their palaces on this panoramic hill.

Go back in time with our Ancient Rome Small Group Tour.

A great experience and well worth doing! You really need to have a guide when you visit these places. Ours was very nice and I could not believe how well she told us about the sites history. I thought it was going to be like a history lesson at school, but she was able to explain things in a simple and fun way. I give this tour 5 stars because I cannot give it 10.

Wonderful opportunity to get to see the Colosseum up close. It was very crowded as it was Easter but our tour included skip the line tickets so we did not have to wait around. My sister and I loved hearing about the gladiators and how the construction was made. Our guide was very pleasant and we really enjoyed seeing these places with the company.

This place is amazing! It is much bigger than you could imagine and you should read some of the history behind the Colesseum before you go. Our guide was good and friendly. She always made sure that everyone was getting the benefit of her expertise and that nobody was getting left behind. A very good morning that I will always remember.

It was worth every cent to see this huge structure and how it stood against time and earthquakes. Anyone who visits Rome has to see this masterpiece and spend time listening to the history.

My husband and I stayed in Rome for two days and did not get close to seeing all that we should have, but the Colosseum and the Vatican were two that we did. We booked them both with this company and were very impressed. I would suggest taking this guided tour as you learn a lot more and you do not have to stand in line for hours. Thank you.

I do not understand how people can tour a place like this without a guide. Ours was great and she gave us such a deep understanding of all the details behind the Colosseum and Forum.
