    Assign yourself a typical Roman name, sing-along with your guide and the group and learn a few Italian words as you explore the Roman Forum. Enjoy a comprehensive panoramic tour of Ancient Rome in a comfortable vehicle, which not only covers the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, but will also take you to other Rome highlights, such as, Circo Massimo, Mouth of Truth, Teatro Marcello, Tiberina Island and Piazza Venezia.

    Indulge in treasure hunts and quizzes while you get a skip-the-line access to the Colosseum and Palatine Hill.

    Your English speaking guide will accompany you at all times, helping you with the activities and taking you around the Forum area. He will also share interesting anecdotes from Rome’s interesting past.

    Enjoy some leisure time at the Terrazza Caffarelli, which provides great photo opportunities against the backdrop of Rome’s breathtaking skyline.


    Meet your guide at Piazza del Colosseo. To begin your exciting tour, join the guide and sing along a fun song called We’re Going To Rome to set the mood for the theme of the tour. Next, your guide will ask each member of the group to choose a Roman name. Take baby steps and learn a few Latin and Italian words from the guide before your group is ready to break into another song called If You Want To Say Hello.

    Next, embark on a panoramic tour around the city in a comfortable vehicle. Your vehicle will drive you around the important Rome highlights like Circo Massimo, Mouth of Truth, Teatro Marcello, Tiberina Island and Piazza Venezia. Your English speaking guide will tell you about the tour and distribute booklets which contains all the information regarding the Rome Sightseeing Tour and the activities you will be involved in during the course of the tour.

    After the panoramic tour, you will begin your sightseeing at the Roman Forum, the central area around which ancient Rome developed. Filled with beautiful statues and buildings, it is a hub of stunning architecture and was a platform for public speeches in AD 203. At the Roman Forum, you will build a Laurel leaves crown and learn all about Roman coins and numbers. Thanks to the knowledgeable guide and a fascinating treasure hunt, families will co-operate, while exploring the Forum, to find the solutions to the quizzes on the booklet.

    During your time at the Forum, you will get Skip-the-Line access to the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre), which is inhabited by myriad tales of bravery, public life and royalty in ancient Rome. You will also visit the Palatine Hill, the centremost of the Seven Hills of Rome.

    Next, you will move on top of The Palatine Hill and enjoy a breathtaking view overlooking the Forum area.

    After an educative and relaxing walk through the Forum area and Palatine Hill, you will reach one of the most beautiful terraces in downtown, Terrazza Caffarelli from where you will enjoy 350 degree, panoramic views of the city.

    Your tour ends at Terrazza Caffarelli where you can spend some leisurely time, taking photographs under the backdrop of the spectacular Roman skyline or grab a snack from the local joints.
