Let’s start from the greatest amphitheater ever built in the roman history, the Colosseum. An inside visit with a professional guide who will give you all the facts, the uses and history of this amazing oval shaped monument that the modern inhabitants are so proud of.
Built in the valley between the Palatine, Esquiline and Caelian, is the symbol of Rome. Despite if it was damaged by fires, earthquakes and looting, it has survived the centuries and is still today the most world impressive ancient monument ever built in the Roman period.
Carry on with Roman Forum, once the commercial, religious, political and legal center of the ancient city of Rome. The expert guide will give you a full introduction about this second site of the tour including the Tabularium, Temple of Concord, Temple of Saturn and Vesta and finally the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina.
This guided tour goes on with a visit at the Palatine Hill which, for the Romans, had always represented the city’s sacred birthplace. Apart from Temples of Victory, of Jupiter Stator, Jupiter Victor and the Magna Mater, no public buildings were erected there. In 44 BC the Emperor Augustus transferred his home on this magnificent hill and after his kingdom other Emperors used to build their residences there and gradually transformed the whole Palatine Hill into a single sumptuous residence.
From the Palatine Hill terrace, the guide will give you an insight of the Maximum Circus which was used for chariot racing and it can be considered as the largest building ever put up for entertainment purposes.
