What you'll do
In a small group, we'll get restricted access to forgotten chambers at Cesar's Palace and Roman Forum (Old City), and also a priority access tour of the Colosseum. For the first time in 700 years, sections of Cesar's palace have again been made accessible after devastating earthquakes and fires caused palace walls and tunnels to collapse. You'll walk in the footsteps of Rome's most brilliant, psychotic, and influential emperors, while I explain their incredible history. You'll enjoy access to 7 sites in the Palace and Old city not open to the general public. This experience not only allows you privileged access to incredible ruins but keeps you cool as we'll spend portions in underground sites, protected from the summer heat. Next, we'll make out way into the Colosseum skipping the long lines with reserved tickets. We'll walk the same steps as gladiators, emperors, and doomed prisoners. Bloodthirsty Romans gathered 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 leaving free time so self-exploration.
Originally from the United States, 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. I understand 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 will take care of all reservations and tickets 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 recommendations for Rome's best restaurants, cafes, wine bars, and hard to find gems! Please don't hesitate to contact me for any information or details needed to help plan your trip.
