Feel inspired by Roman history while checking out key landmarks like the Arch of Titus, the tomb of emperor Julius Caesar and more. 

Walk along to reach Palatine Hill and take in panoramic views where legend has that Romulus founded the city of Rome. Lying at the centre of the seven most famed hills of Rome, it looks down over the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus chariot-racing circuit. It was once home to the Roman emperors and the aristocrats. 

Once inside the Colosseum, you will be awe-struck to see the majestic ruins. Arguably the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre) is inhabited by myriad tales of bravery, public life, and royalty in ancient Rome.
