The best of Rome

The Best of the city

One of the most famous buildings of the Roman era is certainly the Flavian amphitheater, better known as the Colosseum. This building, built for the entertainment of the Roman people, was built in the first century AD by order of the emperor Vespasian Flavius from whom it takes the name of Flavian Amphitheater.

Colosseum Tour: Discover the History and Secrets

Your guide will help you discover the history, secrets and anecdotes of this majestic building. You will be able to see the hypogeum where everything necessary for the games was crammed, the reconstruction of the wooden floor where gladiatorial shows and hunting performances took place, you will visit the museum on the second floor of the coliseum where you can admire the archaeological finds found with excavations, such as food remains, decorative statues, marble seats with graffiti carved by spectators in moments of boredom, and many other finds that will leave you speechless. A scenic walk in the corridor between the first and second floors will give you the chance to get the perspective of over 50,000 spectators.

Explore the Heart of Ancient Rome

At the end of the visit of the Colosseum, the guide will take you to the heart of ancient Rome by visiting the Roman Forum, once the center of political and religious life and administrative point of the city, and the Palatine Hill, the place where ancient Rome was founded and where the imperial palace was erected. The remains of public buildings, such as the Basilica Emilia, the basilica Julia, the basilica of Maxentius, the pavement of the Augustan age, the temple of Antonio Pio, Staturno and Vespasiano are just some of the main Roman buildings that you will visit during the tour.

The Legacy of Ancient Rome

Most of these buildings, especially the palatine, with the imperial palace, were used as a quarry due to the inestimable value of the materials used, such as marble and travertine. most of these materials ended up in the hands of the popes, in the churches and noble palaces built during the Renaissance and the Baroque.

Keep going on through the Eternal City

At the end of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome tour you will go to Piazza Venezia, the main square of Rome with its famous buildings such as the Vittoriano, know also as the wedding cake, the celebration bilding for the 50th anniversary of the Italian unification, Palazzo Venezia once used by the Pope Paul II as royal residence then chosen by Mussolini as the headquarter of the government with the balcony used to give speach to the people, and the Bonaparte building. Walking through the main road of Rome Via del Corso and some backroads of Rome, you will finally get at the Pantheon, the best preserved building of the Ancient Rome. Originally used as temple for the most important Roman Gods, it became a church in the 609 AD, which is why it has arrived to this day while preserving the original structure instead of being demolished to recycle the best materials.
