Ancient Rome Half-Day Tour: Colosseum and Roman Forum
See the top sights of ancient Rome with this 2-hour tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum, including skip-the-line access. Walk the ancient cobblestones with a group of no more than 25 people.

Meet your guide and group in central Rome, choosing one of two departure times - morning or afternoon.

The first stop is the monumental Colosseum. The construction of the largest amphitheater in the Roman Empire was started by Vespasian in 72 AD. This building was planned to change the relationship between power and people from then on: entertainment and distraction was offered to the populace for free. It was used for gladiator fights and hunting simulations involving ferocious and exotic animals. The capacity is estimated around 70,000 people.

Find out the unbelievable engineering techniques that allowed ancient Romans to complete this massive structure, that still stands today, in less than 10 years.

Visit the Roman Forum, the ancient center of economics, politics, and social life in the Roman Empire.
