Skip-The-Line Small Group Colosseum Tour with Forum, Palatine Hill & VR Experience

The meeting point for our tour of the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine is one of the best view points for pictures of the classic Roman cityscape and the perfect place to begin the story of Rome.


Your professional and fully licensed guide will lead you inside the Colosseum, taking you back from the time of its construction through the excitement of the gladiator games, and giving you the truly incredible stories behind Rome's most famous landmark.


You will continue your travel back in time visiting the Palatine archeological site where the first village of Rome was founded and where the Roman emperors built their political buildings and private palaces, and another breathtaking view of both the old and new city of Rome from one of its seven hills. 


Before long you will find yourself in the Roman Forum, the main political and administrative centre of the ancient city where you will walk among religious temples, through triumphal arches and past majestic basilicas to the pulpit where the Caesars gave their legendary speeches.


Thanks to our amazing guides, you will have fun learning much of the history of Rome and the fascinating context that gave birth to the Colosseum, leaving with all your questions answered and curiosities explored. And with our unique virtual reality experience made available to you at three points along the tour, you will see what ancient Rome actually looked like from the exact spot that you are standing, and in this case the scale of the historic reality brought to life is even more powerful than you might imagine.
