Detailed Product Description
Enjoy a fantastic walking tour to the most important ancient and old monuments of the eternal city, Rome. From the start to the end of the visit, the guide will tell you the historical information, arts and facts of those fabulous monuments that made Rome famous in the rest of the world.

Visit inside the greatest amphitheater ever built in the history, the Colosseum. Built in the valley between the Palatine, Esquiline and Caelian, is now the emblem of Rome. Despite much damage by fires, earthquakes and looting, it has survived the centuries and still today the most world impressive ancient monument ever built in the Roman period. Building works began in A.D. 72 under the Emperor Vespasian and inaugurated by his son and successor Titus in A.D. 80. Spectators were accommodate to watch gladiators contests, animal hunts and naval battles.

Then step in to the commercial, religious, political and legal center of the ancient city of Rome, the Roman Forum. The valley of the Forum, lying between the Palatine, the Capitol and the first slopes of the Viminal and the Quirinal. An expert licensed guide, will give you a full introduction of this second site of the tour. The Tabularium, Temple of Concord, Temple of Saturn and Vesta, an the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina will be part of the interior visit of this unique ancient quarter of Roman period.

The Imperial Forum of Caesar, originally built to meet the need for more space than was available in the old political and administrative center. The start of this project began in the 1st century BC as Caesar wanted to extend the Roman Forum immediately adjacent to it and at the very foot of the citadel on the Capitol.

Once this part of the tour has finished, you will be guided to one of the most famous fountain in the world, Trevi Fountain. So, as the legend goes, you must throw a coin in it and make a wish. Built by Nicola Salvi between 1732 and 1762 in the form of triumphal arch where the sculpture of the ocean’s God stands.

Then the Pantheon, a splendid temple in honor of all the Olympian Gods erected by Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa, son-in-law of the Emperor Augustus. Built in the 27 BC, Augustus refused to have it consecrated to himself so he decided to have his statue inside the porch. Therefore, this ancient temple, was named as the Pantheon. The breathtaking interiors with the largest dome ever built in concrete will draw your eyes to the round opening at the top where light falls evenly into the space.

And, to top up the visit, why not adding the breathtaking Stadium of Domitian as called today Navona Square built by the Emperor Domitian around 85 AD and used for athletic games, musical and poetic competitions that were hold near by Odeon. Inspired by Greek models, it could hold up to 30.000 spectator at times.
