Highlights
    What to Expect
    Take a VIP visit to the home of one of history’s greatest rulers, the Casa di Augusto (Caesar’s Palace). Inside, immerse yourself in the life of Caesar Augustus as you view his living room and bedroom, along with jaw-dropping frescoes that are still beautifully preserved after nearly 2,000 years.

    Next, follow your guide out into the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill for a full tour of Rome’s ancient Civic center. From ancient palaces, to temples, market and monuments, you’ll learn what life was really like in the Ancient world.

    Finally, enjoy skip the line access to the Colosseum where your guide will bring the old stones to life with stories of the gladiators, wild animal hunts, and public executions that made this arena one of the most famous sights in the Ancient World.

    Additional Info
    • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
    • Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate guests with mobility impairments, wheelchairs or strollers on this tour.
    • NOTE: There is a new rule at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities) and all guests must now pass through a security check before entering the Colosseum.
    • The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although our tickets are pre-booked with Skip the Line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).
    • The Colosseum is subject to occasional closures. The Colosseum administration is usually aware of this and informs us the day before or of a given closure. Please provide us with detailed contact information in the event that we need to reach you to reschedule your tour.
    • Please note: this tour operates in English only
    • On Saturdays the House of Augustus and the House of Livia will be closed to the pubblic. On such occasions, you will visit Case Romane instead, where you will see many of the same features."
    • On some days it will not be possible to visit the House of Augustus due to closures or restricted availability. On such occasions, you will visit the House of Livia instead, where you will see many of the same features."
    Cancellation Policy
    For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.

    Our guide "Fab" was great. We gOT an awesome tour and some great history lessons mixed with some humor. This is a great tour for any amateur history buff. The information provided on the tour intertwined with and complimented the info we got on our other tours.

    I believe our guide was Francesco and he was fabulous! He was professional and you could tell he liked what he does. He is very knowledgeable about history which is what we wanted. We learned so much we didn't know...how Rome was essentially built on top of each other 3 times.

    Our Guide was excellent!!! We loved every minute of the tour. She was very knowledgeable, nice and funny. She knew her stuff. She kept the tour interactive by asking us questions and letting us ask questions. We covered a lot in the time allotted. Totally worth the money.

    We took this tour that lasted just under 4 hours and it was so informative. We had Tiberio lead us and he was so nice and so animated he really made the tour fun and he was very knowledgeable. The Coliseum was fabulous even though the inside has decayed drastically.

    Guido is a true professional and an extremely knowledgeable historian of Roman history. We began by going to the Palentine Hill to tour the house of Augustus which has only been open to the public for perhaps 12 years. We continued to explore the rest or the hill with him and
