Ancient Rome – extensive tour
Private Tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum.
Extensive tour of the Ancient Rome, perfect for history lovers and good walkers.
I’ve designed this tour to be a long journey through the ages to discover the history of the Roman Empire, admiring its majestic remains. As a guide/archaeologist I’ll be happy to meet you and travel with you back to the Roman times to understand the society that built the Colosseum and enjoyed the Gladiators games so much.
I’ll explain facts, myths and legend of the Ancient Rome, exploring the Colosseum, and after a short walk the Palace of Emperors, located on the Palatine Hill.
Finally I’ll be happy to escort you in “my” Roman Forum, where I’ve spent weeks excavating when I was a student of Archaeology.
