Spend the day visiting Rome’s top attractions – the Roman Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Immerse yourselves in thousands of years of history as you learn about the largest amphitheatre and its history at the site of gladiator battles. Sit in the stands and wander through the underground passages as you marvel at the size of the building.
This evening, you head for the opera. This year, Teatro dell'opera di Roma is showing operas by famous composers such as Bizet, Rossini and Verdi. Performances start around 7pm or 8pm and we recommend booking seats in the stalls to make sure you’re comfortable for the long performances. If travelling in the summer months, you may be lucky enough to witness a performance at the Baths of Caracalla.
