This travel combo pass also includes a guided tour of one of the most iconic attractions in Rome: get ready to travel back in time as you step into the Colosseum, or feel like an Ancient Roman as you walk the street of the timeless old city of Rome!
The great Roman Empire is one of the most exciting topics in history and is still part of school books today! The Romans invaded lands and places near and far, importing and often imposing their culture and traditions. The evidence of this greatness can still be seen all over the world, especially in the countries surrounding Italy.
But Rome alone encompasses many of the artistic beauties bequeathed to us by its ancient people. As you begin the tour, you will find yourself walking on the same stones that were trodden by the ancient Romans, to reach the heart of the magnificent Flavian Amphitheatre Theatre, known to most as the 'Colosseum'! Your guide will accompany you on a journey in which you will discover anecdotes and stories about how the Roman people enjoyed their leisure time and how they admired the Gladiators, appreciating their long fights against wild animals or big, fearful opponents!
We will then continue towards the Palatine Hill and you will find a very special place where you can still relive the legend that gave life to our Capital, the original place where the story of Romulus and Remus came to life almost 3000 years ago! From here you can enjoy a spectacular view that will leave you in ecstasy.
Next, you will cross the Roman Forum, also known as the 'Forum Magnum', the beating heart of ancient Rome, made up of buildings related to politics and religion that manifested the grandeur of Rome. It was a place where daily life was noisy, the streets always filled with people from different classes and backgrounds, such as the military, politicians who spread their ideas with speeches to the people before elections, or the vestals (priestesses consecrated to the Goddess Vesta) whose job was to prepare ingredients for the sacrifices of men in trial.
Step back in time with us and book your place to experience ancient Rome like never before!
Enjoy your stay in Rome by combining the guided tour of the Colosseum, Palatine and Roman Forum with the experience on our open bus.
