This is a 3-hour walking tour to discover the massive Coliseum and the Forum. These sites were built during the Epoch of the Caesars, between the reigns of Augustus and Constantine.
The rise and fall of the Roman Empire will also be discussed
while among these ruins.



The archeological guide will meet you at the hotel. The tour will begin at the Church of San
Clemente. This structure is composed of three levels, one built on top of another. Your guide will
explain the many ancient mythologies of the time, as well as the common beliefs during the
Medieval Period.
From here, your experienced guide will escort you toward the gladiators' barracks. You will
learn many things about this most recognized monument in the world, the Coliseum.
The chronology of the glory that was once Rome will be discussed as you climb to the upper
piers. The view into the interior is a fascinating maze of tunnels. This is truly an immense and
imposing amphitheater. Its remains continue to be admired for their ancient splendor. It was
commonly considered to be a stadium for professional gladiators to fight to the death. You will
discover that this was intended to cultivate the warlike spirit that had enabled the Romans to
conquer the known world.
We will continue the tour to the Arch of Titus, and on to the path that the victorious
Roman Legions took. We will descend into the Roman Forum, up the Via Sacra and into the commercial,
religious and political center of Ancient Rome. During the Republican Era, this was also the
center of civic and economic activity. It continued to maintain its important role during the
Imperial Period as the route of triumphal
processions for victorious generals.
Our exploration is completed at the very top of Capitol Hill where all can gaze below at the
ruins of a once great empire. We'll continue on to the Piazza del Campidoglio, designed by the
brilliant master, Michelangelo, in order to house the political powers of Renaissance Rome.
