Discover the magic of the gems of Roman history and the heart of the Ancient City - the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. This guided tour with Skip-The-Line access is perfect for almost anyone with flexible timings - whether you are an early bird or ‘not-so-much-of-a-morning-person’! This tour takes you on a guided trail to explore the ruins of the historic kingdom of the ancient city, with the option to choose a morning or afternoon time slot for the utmost convenience.

Get an insight into Rome’s regal past as your guide takes you amidst jaw-dropping Roman architecture. Meeting your guide at the Arch of Constantine statue, make your way past the long queues to enter the iconic Colosseum with your skip-the-line ticket, armed with a pocket radio receiver and earphones. Once inside, prepare to be swooned off your feet with the astonishing history as you listen to stories of bravery, battles, public life and royalty in ancient Rome. Sink into the surreal stories of gladiator battles and animal hunts cheered on by thousands at this very venue. Admire this living proof of the engineering and architectural genius of the Romans which has also acted as a model for stadiums around the world.

The fascinating ruins of the Roman Forum are up next. Once the cultural hub of Rome, the Forum has hosted festivals and war victory processions. As you wander amongst the ruins, try to imagine the life of these royal and extravagant people who set the precedent of what a flourishing kingdom should be. Finally, you will arrive at the Palatine Hill, one of the seven hills on which the city Rome was built. Get regaled with the legends of Romulus and Remus as you relive one of the most important moments in world history!

Please call the local activity operator at least a day prior to the start of the tour to confirm all departure details.

It is the responsibility of all visitors to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before departure. Guests arriving after departure cannot be accommodated & missed tours or tickets cannot be refunded.

Extra measures may be implemented at some venues due to heightened global security. As a result, we may experience delays in getting through mandatory security checks when entering these venues. Extra measures may also restrict the size of bags that can be brought inside. To avoid disruptions or possible denied entry, we strongly suggest that you avoid bringing large purses, bags, or backpacks on your tour. The Colosseum does not have any cloakroom facilities in which to store such items.

Unfortunately, this tour is not suitable for those with mobility problems. We are also unable to accommodate strollers/pushchairs on this tour.

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.

Italy’s tourist sites are among the most popular in the world. Skip the Line Access and careful planning limit crowd exposure, but please be aware that some locations may be unavoidably busy during standard hours.

On this tour, some of the venues or parts of the venue may be subject to last-minute, unpredictable closures. When this occurs, we are happy to offer customers an extended tour in keeping with the advertised total length of the tour.
