What you'll do

Avoid the large, standard group tour and immerse yourself in the Colosseum's 2,000-year history with this intimate semi-private tour. We'll skip the long ticket lines and walk in the same steps of gladiators, emperors, and doomed prisoners. Bloodthirsty Romans gathered in the in this ancient stadium to watch deadly sports and executions, and I'll explain every gory detail. We'll spend about 90 minutes exploring the Colosseum's 1st and 2nd levels, while also allowing you free time for photos and self-exploration. Following the Colosseum, we'll make our way to the Roman Forum (Ancient City) and Palatine Hill (Cesar's Palace) where we'll again enjoy skip the line access. Surrounded by picturesque ruins we'll visit ancient palaces, temples, tombs, the House of the Vestal Virgins, and the Senate house before finishing the tour at the tomb of Julius Cesare. This 3-hour tour concludes in the center of Rome's ancient ruins, which are also conveniently located in modern Rome's city center; leaving easy access to local restaurants, cafes, shopping, and public transportation options. NOTE: We skip the long ticket lines, but must pass through security, generally a 5-10 minute wait.

Your hosts

Originally from the United State I've been lucky enough to call Rome home for the past 11 years! I first came to Rome to study its incredible history, but the charm and excitement of the city have kept me here for over a decade. In 2019 I hosted over 8,000 people from Airbnb. Those experiences gave me a great understanding of the importance of your time in Italy, and with that in mind, I aim to provide reliable and professional experiences to visitors from around the world. Along with my officially licensed, English speaking co-hosts, we'll take care of all reservations so your visit to Rome's greatest sites includes a fun and informative tour while skipping the long lines. We're also happy to share our tips for Rome's best restaurants, cafes, and hard to find gems! Don't hesitate to contact me for any help planning your trip to Italy!
