Description

The ancient glory of Rome returns to life! Skip the Line at three of the most significant surviving remnants of the Eternal City: the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Your expert, English-speaking tour guide will share anecdotes and history, rebuilding the impressive ruins with tales of Ancient Rome’s heyday.

Your journey into antiquity begins with the Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic sights. Your guide will call on their historical and archaeological expertise to tell you all about the battles, both martial and political, that played out in this incredible amphitheater. You might be surprised to learn that ‘Gladiator’ didn’t get everything right and that feats of ancient engineering even allowed the Romans to re-enact naval battles here.

The next stop takes you back to the beginning. The Palatine Hill is the very spot where brothers Romulus and Remus did battle, and where the victorious Romulus founded the city that would become Rome. Here, you’ll enjoy spectacular views overlooking your next destination: the Roman Forum.

Your journey culminates at the heart of Ancient Rome: the Roman Forum and the Via Sacra, the Sacred Way. All of Roman life could be found in this bustling marketplace: commerce and trade, political rallies, military parades, and the sacred ceremonies of the Vestal Virgins.

In just three hours, you’ll experience all that allowed Rome to endure so long – staying immersed in history the entire time, without wasting a moment waiting in line.

The best skip the line tour of my trip to Roma. Our Guide Igor was entertaining and very informative. He walked us through the history and architecture of the place and allowed time to take photos as we progressed through the sites. I would recommend this tour to any one coming to Roma.
