Make your way to the Colosseum area in Rome, and meet your private guide by the short side of the Arch of Constantine on Via di San Gregorio. At 8:45am, you’ll bypass the Colosseum’s main entrance line with your skip-the-line ticket, and enter the ancient amphitheater.
Learn about the infamous gladiatorial games that took place during the days of Ancient Rome, and hear how the stadium was central to life for Romans of all social classes. After discovering the Colosseum’s highlights, you’ll head back outside to the Roman Forum where stories about its ruined temples and marketplaces bring their history to life.
A key part of the ancient culture — as it is still today — was food, and your tour focuses on this as you explore the forum’s historic monuments. With tales of Roman food ringing in your ears, you’ll stroll onward to the Jewish Quarter to learn about its culinary customs and see sights such as the Marcello Theater.
Continue to the city’s Campo de’ Fiori food market as the commentary sprints forward to modern-day Rome. Sample local delicacies as you explore, and discover stalls selling crisp Roman pizza, cold meat, cheese, and more. Your tour then ends in the market area around 1:15pm.
