What you'll do
Firstly we will convene at chic cafe located near the Colosseum with amazing elevated views of the Amphitheater and the Arch of Constantine. Enjoy a true Italian coffee and freshly prepared pastry - the typical Italian breakfast. A quick pit stop before the big day. In a group of less than 13 people we will give a short introduction about the Colosseum from the exterior. Using priority entrances for reservation tickets we will do a brief security check that usually takes 5-10 minutes. You will then proceed to explore the Colosseum's numerous nooks and crannies and the spectacular panaromaic views from the second ring. There will be break inside the Colosseum of about 20-30 minutes to take it all in or snap photos. We will then meet just outside the Colosseum exit to proceed to the Palatine Hill entrance. At the base of the hill you will receive a detailed explanation about the foundation of Rome on the Palatine Hill some 2700 years ago. Explore the expansive ruins of the Imperial palace. The grand finale is the epic views over the Roman forum where we will analyse the layout of the city and how life would of been here. Discover the fascinating uses of buildings that still stand 2000 years later. During the experience your expert guide will make several stops in prime locations and will provide you explanation about the areas we visit. The tour finishes inside the area.
I'm a young British guide with energy, a wealth of experience in tourism, and an addiction to Roman History. My passion developed in my adolescence and when traveling Europe I got a little lost. The allure of the Eternal city kept me here for a while, I've left many times since... but always returned! I started work here as a professional guide in 2016 and my studies in 2015. Book with me and I guarantee you'll go home sharing my infectious passion for Rome and a smile on your face. All my experiences will be hosted by myself or my co-host Harry.
