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 colosseum was fabulous, as was Palatine & Roman Forum, soo much better than expected. Our guide Alessandro was very informative & brought the whole experience to life. Skip the line is a must.

Sylvia was an amazing and enthusiastic guide. She had great attention to detail to all aspects of the tour. Would recommend to anyone visiting Rome for the first time!

Tour goes at a nice pace and the guides let you have time to look and take it in the sights. We got in MUCH quicker than those doing individual tours. BRING A BOTTLE OF WATER!!! It’s so hot and little shade if your tour is the afternoon. There were also several places to refill your bottle along the tour.

Just being in one of many iconic places, to cherish great moments and memories together. Seeing is believing, what a feat of engineering back then, wow.

Guide Marco was one of best guides I met. Knowledgeable (history, technics, politics, culture), knowing the place perfectly, well organised, polite ... with dry humor .. what else is needed? : )
