The ancient glory of Rome is reborn! Skip the Line at three of the most significant surviving remnants of the Eternal City: the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Your English-speaking expert historian tour guide will share anecdotes and history throughout the 3-hour tour, rebuilding the impressive ruins with tales of Ancient Rome’s heyday.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

Your journey into antiquity begins with the Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic sights. Your guide will call on their historical and archaeological expertise to tell you all about the battles, both physical and political, that played out in this incredible amphitheater. You might be surprised to learn that ‘Gladiator’ didn’t get everything right and that feats of ancient engineering even allowed the Romans to re-enact naval battles here.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

The next stop takes you back to the very beginning. The Palatine Hill is the spot Romulus chose to found the city that would become Rome in 753 BC – a decision that ended in tragedy for his brother Remus. Here, steeped in history, you’ll enjoy spectacular views overlooking your next destination: the Roman Forum.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Roman Forum, Largo della Salara Vecchia 5/6, 00186 Rome Italy

The Forum and the Via Sacra, the Sacred Way, were the heart of Ancient Rome. All of Roman life could be found in this bustling marketplace: commerce and trade, political rallies, military parades, and the sacred ceremonies of the Vestal Virgins.

In just three hours, you’ll experience all that allowed Rome to endure so long – staying immersed in history the entire time, without wasting a moment waiting in line.

The excursion was very crowded, no fault of the company but it is a busy place. The guide was Italian, knowledgeable but her English was not very good and so sometimes we could not understand her.

Sylvia was excellent! Great insight! Amazing that she’s an archeologist who actually does digs! Great tour where we got to see everything!

Our tour guide was so nice and knowledgeable! She really cared for the group and constantly asked if anyone needed a break or needed anything. It was super cool to see the magnitude of the Colosseum as well as learn about the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill.

Our Guide Usa (Uso) was wonderful, so knowledgeable and nice to spend time with. We enjoyed touring the Coliseum, but Palatine Hill was spectacular, wish we had more time there. Then going downhill to the forum was wonderful and Usa/Uso was so informative and interesting. We also loved the personal attention of the “semi-private tour” having only 8 people. Well worth the money. Totally recommend booking through Viatour as well.
