Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

I'm an archaeologist and historian: that's why the complex of the Roman Forum/Palatine HIll is my favourite part of the city.
Here you can enter and enjoy a relaxing morning, strolling around the ruins, and you'll be happy to avoid the crowd of tourists (mainly interested in the Colosseum).

I've spent years digging in the Roman Forum, and now I'd like to share my love and knowledge with you, for a lovely walk accross the area.
I suggest this tour if you want to enjoy this area at 100%, visiting the most important shrines of the Forum and the Palatine Hill. We can add the visit of the House of Augustus or Livia, a rare occasion to admire Ancient Roman frescoes in Rome.

Meeting point: I'll meet you at the main entrance of the Roman Forum, at the ticket office (Largo della Salara Vecchia). This entrance is along Via dei Fori Imperiali, a long road between the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia. If you're not familiar with the area I'll send you more details.
