Afternoon Walking Tour of Imperial Rome: Colosseum, Palatine, Roman Forum
Optional Tour in Rome
Begin your tour with the Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic sights. Your guide will share his expertise in history and archaeology and speak of the legendary gladiators and the emperors who decided their fates. You will learn how this incredible amphitheater once hosted re-enactments of sea battles.
Then explore Palatine Hill, the spot where brothers Remus and Romulus battled over who would found the first empire, and where Romulus founded the city that would become Rome.
The tour ends at the Roman Forum – the heart of Ancient Rome and home to the bustling marketplace ruled by moneylenders and shopkeepers. Here politicians held rallies before elections, soldiers marched triumphantly down the Sacred Way and the Vestal Virgins decided if men lived or died.
