First, follow in the footsteps of gladiators at the colossal Colosseum. An enduring testament to Roman architecture and engineering, this amphitheater is the largest in the world. Constructed in 72 AD, the Colosseum could seat up to 50,000 spectators in its heyday. Romans would gather there for public events, mock battles, or the infamous gladiator fights. Imagine the excitement and fervor from this bygone era as explore this grand structure and learn its secrets.
Continue immersing yourself in Imperial Rome by walking through the sprawling ruins of the Roman Forum. Surrounded by important government buildings, this ancient marketplace was the center of public life in the Roman Empire and the place where Romans elected their leaders.
From here, visit Circus Maximus, an ancient stadium where Romans went to watch chariot racing. Progress to Palatine Hill, one of the Seven Hills on which Rome was founded. Rising up between the Forum and Circus Maximus, Palatine Hill is the site where, according to Roman mythology, Remus and Romulus - the founders and namesake of Rome - were found by a she-wolf.
Pause now for an authentic Italian lunch, as all this exploring will make you hungry! After lunch, stroll through some of the best piazzas, or city squares, in Rome. This includes the renowened Navona Square, with its triumphant Baroque architecture and fountains. You'll also visit Piazza di Spagna, home to the famous Spanish Steps.
See the prodigious Pantheon, temple to the gods, as you walk through Piazza della Rotonda. One of Rome's best-preserved ancient structures, this impressive building remains the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome two thousand years after its construction.
Before you go, don't forget to throw a coin in the famous Trevi Fountain, Rome's largest Baroque fountain which has achieved worldwide fame through several films. Make a wish as you toss in your coin, perhaps hoping to return to Rome someday soon.

The pick-up service starts 1 hour before the starting time of the activity: the exact time of your pick-up will be communicated after the booking.
Depending on the season, you might visit the Colosseum and Roman Forum first, and then the Squares of Rome, or vice versa.
