Our complimentary headsets will help you better hear your experienced and professional guide who will also gain for you privileged priority entrance to the archaeological area.

Your guided ‘passeggiata’ will include a visit to:

– Palatine Hill

Perhaps this is where it all began. In Rome there is a very fine line between myth and historical fact. According mythology, twins Remus and Romulus abandoned on the hill and suckled by a she wolf were found by a shepherd and guided by the gods to establish Rome. Over a hundred years ago archaeologist Rodolfo Lanciani, excavated a site on the hill and uncovered the remains of an Iron Age settlement dating back to the 9th century BC giving succor to the existence of the early founders of Rome.

– Colosseum

An imperial playground, so called because it was built on a site where once stood the Colossus of Nero, a 115-foot-tall gilded bronze statue of the emperor. As you imagine festival days, take time to consider the inequality of Roman society and the fate of the players in the sport of emperors.

– Roman forum

Once the very heart of the ancient world crowded with people from all corners of the empire and now reduced to rubble. From here the Romans transformed civilization.
