Morning Tour: The Colosseum and the Gems of Rome
After meeting your guide at the designated meeting point, you'll step into the shoes of the famous gladiators, Commodus and Spartacus, and prominent leaders such as Julius Caesar and Augustus during the first part of this 3-hour skip-the-line tour. Place yourself in the center of a large arena with over 60,000 chanting spectators ready to watch you in all your glory. Welcome to the Colosseum. This iconic symbol of Imperial Rome was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on classical mythology. Next, you will walk along the Imperial Fora, a series of public squares constructed between 46 BC and 113 AD, leading to Venice Square which still celebrates the Unification of Italy with its imposing national monument, the Vittoriano.
With your local guide, you will stop in Torre di Largo Argentina to meditate on the place where Julius Caesar was assassinated. From here, move to Piazza della Rotonda where you will find one of the most beautiful and best-preserved buildings from ancient times, the Pantheon. Its story begins nearly 2000 years ago when Agrippa, faithful friend of Augustus, had a temple which was dedicated to all gods in the heavens. In those days, it looked very different. It was Hadrian who rebuilt the Pantheon as you see it now. Finish the tour in Navona Square, one of the most elegant squares in the world and the symbol of the Roman Baroque. All the main attractions such as Piazza Navona, Spagna, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, and more are included on this tour.

Here are some you can’t miss: the Canopy by Bernini, the bronze statue of St. Peter, and the Pietà by Michelangelo. Leave the church and see the center bearing the obelisk brought from Egypt.
