Take an awe-inspiring trip with your guide into the centre of the Roman Empire. Marvel at the imposing Colosseum, commissioned by Emperor Vespasian. The stadium accommodated up to 50,000 spectators who came to view the gladiatorial tournaments that sometimes lasted up to 100 days. Adjacent is the Arc of Constantine; dating from 315 AD, it is a forerunner to many other triumphal arches around the world. Next, explore the excavations of the vast Forum, where remains of temples, streetscapes, and palaces can be appreciated up close. Your guide helps brings to life the atmosphere of Rome’s pulsating heart, and shows you the other nearby forums of Trajan, Augustus, and Caesar. Finally, discover the Palatine Hill, inhabited since the ninth century BC; archaeologists believe this to be the place where Romulus, founder of Rome, lived.
