Archaeological Wonders of Rome

  • Guided tour of 3 archaeological wonders
  • Priority entrance tickets to the Colosseum 
  • Pick up from central hotels

Experience the splendour of the classic Roman Empire on this archaeological tour. You’ll get the chance to discover the Roman Forum, which was originally the social and political heart of the city. Ruins are all that remain today, however, the towering columns and cobbled streets will be brought to life by the expert guide whose knowledge will make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time to the 6th Century BC.

You’ll be able to see the iconic Colosseum which is often considered a symbol of the Roman Empire. It shows how advanced the Romans were in being able to build something of its magnitude during a time where modern machinery didn’t exist. It was commissioned by Emperor Vespasian in 80 AD and people of all classes would come to see the gruesome battles between man and beast.

The final stop on the tour is Palatine Hill, which is thought to be the site where Romulus founded Rome. This area would later go on to house some of the most impressive architecture of the Roman Empire including the palace of Emperor Augustus. Whilst ruins are all that exist today, you’ll still get a sense of what life was like and with splendid views out across Rome, you’ll be able to admire what the city has become.
