Description

Colosseum Tour - Including Roman Forum and the Ancient City, here you will step into history on this Colosseum Tour starting from the Arch of Constantine with Skip the line to the Colosseum tickets. therefore you will not have to wait around in the long lines... Once inside on this Colosseum Tour our guide will show you the around this Ancient amphitheatre, with stories of the gladiators and emperors, along with the many battles that have taken place over the years.

This Colosseum tour is great for both adults and children as our excellent tour guide will bring to life the mystery and drama aswell details of the many water battles which took place inside the great amphitheatre.


In the sixth century the Colosseum was used as a burial ground, and later as a dwelling. During the Jubilee of 1675 in memory of the many Christian martyrs the Colosseum assumed the character of a sacred place. In 1744 Pope Benedict XIV consecrated him to the passion of Christ, and he built the 15 Stations of the Cross. This best Colosseum tour will then move on towards the Arch of Constantine, which was built on the ancient Via Triumphalis, a road used by the triumphant marches direct to the Capitol to celebrate the battle at the Milvian Bridge in 312 AD, when Emperor Constantine defeated his rival Maxentius,

We can then continue our Colosseum tour through the streets and trails of a tour of the Roman Forum located between the seven hills of Rome. Over the centuries there were built monuments, buildings for political activities, religious and commercial activities, following civil basilicas, where activities took place proceedings. The various dynasties of emperors added prestigious monuments: the Temple of Vespasian and Titus and that of Antoninus Pius and Faustina, the Arch of Septimius Severus, to celebrate the victories of the emperor over the Parthians. The Emperor Maxentius to the early fourth century AD built the temple dedicated to the memory of his son Romulus. The last monument built in the Forum's Column was erected in 608 AD in honour of the Byzantine Emperor Phocas.

From Roman Forum our Colosseum and Ancient Rome Tour will continue to the great Piazza del Campidoglio on the Capitoline Hill (Capitolium), since ancient times this has been the focal point of political and religious activities in Rome. The most famous episode which covers the Capitol is linked to the invasion of 18 July 390 BC when the Gauls reached and sacked Rome, with the exception of the Capitol, legend has it that the night attack of the Gauls was foiled thanks to the squawking of the Capitoline geese kept in the sacred precincts of the temple of Juno. The Piazza del Campidoglio is situated on the Capitoline Hill (Capitolium) is the first modern square in Rome thanks to the genius of Michelangelo, who in 1546 built the facade of the Senatorial Palace. Then he rebuilt the Palace of the Conservators and began the construction of a second building, the New Palace (now the site of the first public museum in the world which opened in 1734, the Capitoline Museums. The Senatorial Palace was completed after the death of Michelangelo, by Giacomo della Porta, and the New Palace by Carlo Rainaldi.

Colosseum and Ancient Rome - Skip the line Tour

We arrived late and could not find the group at the assigned meeting point. After 10 minutes we did locate the small group near the meeting point.rnI had trouble calling the Tour Guide Company to say we were running late and they were unsuccessful in trying to call me to see where I was.rnBut once we started the tour, our guide was super. I explained to him that I had requested English and Spanish speaking Tour Guide. He said they did not do that but he went ahead and did the tour in both languages. For that I applaud him.rnThe Coliseum was the best part of the tour. The second part with old Rome and the Forum was not as interesting.rnBut thanks for going above and beyond waiting for us and doing both languages.

Colosseum and Ancient Rome - Skip the line Tour

To use an English idiom, this tour did exactly what it said on the tin. Our guide was punctual, professional and very well versed in her subject. We were a small group, just ten, and she managed to engage with everybody throughout the tour. We didn\\\'t stop and the time simply flew by. The weather was wonderful too, but that was not down to Around Rome Tours: we were just lucky!

We were amazed at the amount of information our guide know. There was no question that she could not answer and I was not a rehurst pantomime that you so often get from such guide. We would highly recommend taking any of the tours with this company..

The Colosseum and Ancient Rome tour was awesome. Our guide Irena was very knowledgeable and friendly. She made sure we went to all the good spots for photos and also took photos of us. Her information was easy to understand and the tour was very interesting. The group was small which made it easier to see and hear everything. Definitely recommend as it was one of the highlights of my visit to Rome.

After ringing for over an hour, we had a replacement guide who more than made up for our wait.rnThanks Irene for the afternoon, she even gave our son a small gift as we were celebrating his 14th birthday that day.rnOne star deducted for the lack of communication from the company, but more than made up with our fantastic guide.rnBene grazie Irene.rn

Colosseum and Ancient Rome - Skip the line Tour

My wife and I did 2 tours with Around Rome Tours. We really enjoyed both of them. The first was the Vatican and St. Peters. It was an intimate tour and Francesca was extremely knowlegable and polite. Our second tour was for the Colosseum and Ancient Rome with Irena, who was very personal and did an excellent job. We really enjoyed both tours due to the exellent knowledge of the tour guides and the small size of the tour group which meant more individual time to ask the guide questions. We will deffinaly go with Around Rome Tours.

Colosseum and Ancient Rome - Skip the line Tour

Our guide was a blast! Actually this tour was one of our highlights in Rome. Dotti gave us a 3 h history wrap-up from 3000 years back in time to the present. But it was nothing like a boring history class - her talk was designed like a exciting novel to read. She told us about the humanized characters of the emperors, the reputation they had among their people and unraveled the mistery of legends, gods and the christian church. As we joined the tour at the beginning of our trip we encountered so much of these ancient figures and stories which Dotti had told us about that we were fully informed and knew the background of so many great sculptures which made them even more impressive. Thanks so much, Dotti! We learned more in these 3 h than in all the years of history classes in school.

Irene was the tour guide. She was very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic, great sense of humour and an asset to your organisation.rnThe tour itself was value for money and comprehensive compare to other tours we have done. We have learnt more on this tour than before. She is a great ambassador to your company and whatever you are paying her, she deserves more.

I would definitely recommend around Rome tours. They are extremely efficient. Their guide were pleasant,rnwell spoken, extremely knowledgeable. While I do speak decent Italian, both guides made me feel very confortablernwith their masterfully control of both Italian and English. I hope that as I continue my trip of northern ItalyrnI will be as fortunate to find tour guides as good.

Colosseum and Ancient Rome - Skip the line Tour

The tour started with a certain delay as the guide had an accident and couldn\\\'t show up. The guys from the agency that were welcoming the clients at the meeting point did everything to find another guide and in the meantime offered us some refreshment in a bar. At the end this gathering in a bar helped us getting to know the group and it was fun. The guide (i think the name is Irene) arrived and she was definitely worth waiting! The tour was professional, insightful, interesting and lightened with a proper dosage of good sense of humor. She made up for the time lost in the beginning, giving us enough time for making photos and even assisting. We would recommend this tour to anybody. Greetings from Holland:-)

Excellent tour with Sabrina, very interesting. Amazed at the amount of knowledge she was able to remember. Well worth the money to walk straight through the gates rather than wait in the long queue especially if you are only visiting for a few days and do not want to waste any of your precious time in Rome. rn
