Extensive tour of the Ancient Rome, perfect for history lovers and good walkers. (Book my basic tour for a less-detailed tour)
I've designed this tour to be a journey through the ages to discover the history of the Roman Empire, admiring its majestic remains as the Colosseum, Basilica of Maxentius or the Arch of Titus.
I'll be happy to escort you in "my" Roman Forum, where I've spent weeks excavating when I was a student of Archaeology.
We'll talk about facts, myths and legend of the Ancient Rome, exploring the Palace of Emperors on the Palatine Hill.
Gladiators, lions and Ancient Romans are waiting for you!
Meeting point: At the exit of the "Colosseo" subway station at groundfloor, in front of the monument, (Piazza del Colosseo). I'll be there standing with a sign with your name. More details will be provided at the moment of the booking
