What you'll do

Avoid the large, standard group tour and immerse yourself in the Colosseum's 2,000-year history with this intimate semi-private tour.

We'll skip the long ticket lines and walk in the same steps of gladiators, emperors, and doomed prisoners. Bloodthirsty Romans gathered in the in this ancient stadium to watch deadly sports and executions, and I'll explain every gory detail.

We'll spend about 90 minutes exploring the Colosseum's 1st and 2nd levels, while also allowing you free time for photos and self-exploration.

Following the Colosseum, we'll make our way to the Roman Forum (Ancient City) and Palatine Hill (Cesar's Palace) where we'll again enjoy skip the line access.

Surrounded by picturesque ruins we'll visit ancient palaces, temples, tombs, the House of the Vestal Virgins, and the Senate house before finishing the tour at the tomb of Julius Cesare.

This 3-hour tour concludes in the center of Rome's ancient ruins, which are also conveniently located in modern Rome's city center; leaving easy access to local restaurants, cafes, shopping, and public transportation options.

NOTES:
-We skip the long ticket lines, but must pass through security, generally a 5-10 minute wait.

Originally from the United States, I've been lucky enough to call Rome home for the past 11 years!

I first came to Rome to study its incredible history, but Italy's charm, excitement, and food have kept me here for over a decade.

In addition to sharing the incredible 3,000 year history of Rome during the tour, I'm equally excited to share my top picks for pizza, pasta, gelato, and all things delicious in Rome.

Along with my officially licensed, English speaking co-hosts, we'll take care of all reservations so your visit to Rome's greatest sites includes a fun and informative tour while skipping the long lines.

Don't hesitate to contact me for any help planning your trip to Italy!

    This tour is absolutely perfect! It is a relatively long tour so my biggest recommendation is to bring water. I highly recommend this tour. Great tour guide + great price + great historical location = an Awesome time!

    Walid, our actual guide, was friendly and passionate of the rich history. Only reason for 4 stars is because of the meeting up portion. Directions were clear regarding location to meet but we waited around not knowing who we were meeting up with, no response from hosts listed, and phone number provided going straight to voicemail. It would have helped to know which tour agency we were actually meeting with and who since there wasn't a sign saying "airbnb experience" as it states.

    W did a great job giving the history of the most important spots. Lots of time to take pics. The underground part on the Colosseum was really fascinating. Something I could not have done on my own!
