COLOSSEUM AND IMPERIAL ROME TOUR – ROME GUIDES
IMPERIAL ROME TOUR – ROME GUIDES
The Imperial Rome Tour allows you dedicate a half day to the visit of the beating heart of Ancient Rome. Forget the traffic and immerse yourself in history!
We will start from the Roman Forum, the centre of the social, religious and political life of Ancient Rome, enclosed between two hills: the Palatine and the Capitol. The Palatine is connected to the legendary tradition of the foundation of Rome, while on the Capitol stood the majestic Temple of Capitoline Jupiter.
At that point, we will continue discovering the Colosseum, the most famous monument of Italy, built by Vespasian above the ancient Lake of Nero and used for “venationes” and gladiator fights. We will visit the largest and most famous Roman Amphitheatre, one of the seven wonders of the modern world and the actual pride of the city of Rome.
Finally, we will conclude the Tour of Imperial Rome by examining the monumental Arch of Constantine: it was erected by the first Christian Emperor to commemorate the victory in the famous Battle of the Milvian Bridge.
An in-depth examination of the themes examined in this Tour could take place inside the Capitoline Museums, included in our Museums and Galleries Tour.
