Did you know that in Antiquity there used to be a massive bronze statue portraying Emperor Nero, which was taller than the Statue of Liberty?
Did you know that the Colosseum was built on top of a man made pool, which was as long and wide as the arena is today?
Rome is a beautiful city like no other. A cultural jewel whose importance to modern society cannot be understated, boasting an unrivalled depth of architectural wealth and famous landmarks. But real history is ultimately made by people; buildings are just the shells their life stories leave behind. There is only so much you can learn (and more importantly understand) by walking through a ruin with a brief audio-guide, or by reading the plaques at a museum. The goal of this tour is to show you the magnificence of the Colosseum but other than that, to bring Ancient Rome’s Society to life, delving deep into the lives of notable Emperors such as Nero, Vespasian and his son Domitian. Not only you will be amazed by the grandiosity of the arena itself but together with that, your English speaking tour guide will also teach you why the Colosseum came to be. Your Colosseum tour will teach about more than just gladiators. After the visit inside of the Colosseum, together with your passionate tour guide you will see the 4th century AD arch of Emperor Constantine, while on your way to the Roman Forum, hence what it was the city centre of Rome in the Classical World. Your Colosseum tour will teach about more than just gladiators. You’ll learn about everyday life in Ancient Rome. Here you’ll encounter the stores of moneylenders; the final resting place of Julius Caesar; and the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, whose namesake were charged with keeping the sacred flame alive, plus the grave responsibility of bestowing clemency on men condemned to death.
