This tour is a chance to visit the 3 sites of the Colosseum’s Archaeological Park with a licensed guide.
Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum is one of the most famous monuments in the world. Opened with a solemn inauguration that lasted 100 days, it was used for gladiatorial fights and wild animal hunts. It had a capacity for more than 50.000 people and the ability to protect the spectators with a large awning called Velarium. It’s 2.000 years old but the Colosseum is still the symbol of the Eternal City.
The Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills of Rome, is considered “the first nucleus of the Roman Empire” because has been the location where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf and where Rome has its origins. With the development of Rome, it became the most exclusive neighborhood where emperors and patrician families built opulent palaces and the site is now mainly a large open-air museum.
From the Palatine, the tour will across the Roman Forum, for centuries the center of Roman public and economic life, where the most important structures of the ancient city were located.
