What you will see with this tour of the Colosseum
This tour is also called Ancient Rome Guided tour. The reason is that this Colosseum Tour represents the most complete experience you can book to visit the archaeological area of the Colosseum.
First of all, this Colosseum tour includes a comprehensive visit of the monument symbol of Rome. The Flavio Amphitheatre is the other name of the Colosseum. Visitors enter the roman amphitheatre through a priority entrance skipping the line at the ticket office.
The expert, licensed guide comments the monument architecture, explains how it was built, how it looked like in the past and what was its main, original function.
Secondly the group moves to the Palatine Hill. The tour is run on foot. Actually, the three sites included in the tour are located very close one to another. While moving from one site to another, the guide comments the roman ruins which are standing on the way. Actually, the Colosseum is situated along Via dei Fori Imperiali. This special location represented the political and economic centre of the ancient Rome. Each emperor built his imperial forum to celebrate his power. For this reason, today it is possible to admire these splendid ruins, one after the other, along the Via dei Fori Imperiali.
Moreover, the tour includes a stop in front of the Arch of Constantine. This monument is one of the most beautiful triumphal arches of the Roman time. In fact the Arch of Constantine is richly decorated with precious low reliefs depicting the exploits of Constantine’s war victories.
Finally this Colosseum Tour ends at the Roman Forum. The Roman Forum is the most important forum of this area. Inside visitors can admire many roman ruins: temples, obelisks, capitals, statues, funeral monuments and so on. Above all, another triumphal arch, the Arch of Titus.
