    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

    Meet the guide at the designated meeting spot. After a brief introduction jump the queues and follow your guide into the first venue - The Colosseum.

    This enormous and equally awe-inspiring structure was built by the emperors nearly 2000 years ago to entertain blood-thirsty Romans. Your passionate and savvy guide will describe the games and the hunts performed on the arena of Colosseum, will give you an insight into gladiatorial combats and provide you with an expert commentary on the architecture and history of Colosseum.

    Time to take a break. The guide will give you some free time to take pictures and use the restrooms.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

    After the short break it is time to continue to the Roman Forum. You will skip the line again and enter this huge marketplace that used to be a nerve center of ancient Rome. Your guide will make sure to show you the most interesting and important points at this large site and explain their significance to you. You will have plenty of photo opportunities at this awe-inspiring place.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

    The last venue of the tour is The Palatine Hill, the birthplace of Rome and the place where rich and famous of the Eternal City lived. You will have some of the best panoramic views of ancient Rome from the top of the hill, and of course, your guide will bring the ruins to life for you.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Despite the tour almost being cancelled, my husband and I were fortunate to have Dimitri as our private tour guide. His love of history and enthusiasm for his job burst through during the tour. He gave us insights and tidbits of info that I doubt many are lucky enough to get.

    This tour was excellent. Dimitri, our guide, was so incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about history. My family thoroughly enjoyed his tour and would highly recommend anyone to explore the Colloseum, Forum and Palestine Hill on a skip the line tour.
