    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

    The Palatine Hill is the centremost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city and has been called "the first nucleus of the Roman Empire.". It stands 40 metres above the Roman Forum, looking down upon it on one side, and upon the Circus Maximus on the other. From the time of Augustus Imperial palaces were built here.

    Duration: 1 minute

    Stop At: Piazza Venezia, 00187 Rome Italy

    Piazza Venezia is the central hub of Rome, Italy, in which several thoroughfares intersect, including the Via dei Fori Imperiali and the Via del Corso. It takes its name from the Palazzo Venezia, built by the Venetian Cardinal, Pietro Barbo (later Pope Paul II) alongside the church of Saint Mark, the patron saint of Venice. The Palazzo Venezia served as the embassy of the Republic of Venice in Rome.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Arco di Costantino, Via di San Gregorio, 00186 Rome Italy

    The Roman triumph (triumphus) was a civil ceremony and religious rite of ancient Rome, held to publicly celebrate and sanctify the success of a military commander who had led Roman forces to victory in the service of the state or, originally and traditionally, one who had successfully completed a foreign war.

    Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

    The Colosseum or Coliseum also known as the Anfiteatro Flavio or Colosseo, is an oval amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy. Built of travertine, tuff, and brick-faced concrete, it is the largest amphitheatre ever built. The Colosseum is situated just east of the Roman Forum.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Via Sacra, Rome Italy

    The Via Sacra (Latin: Via Sacra) (Sacred Road) was the main street of ancient Rome, leading from the top of the Capitoline Hill, through some of the most important religious sites of the Forum (where it is the widest street), to the Colosseum.

    Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

    The Roman Forum, also known by its Latin name Forum Romanum (Italian: Foro Romano), is a rectangular forum (plaza) surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome. Citizens of the ancient city referred to this space, originally a marketplace, as the Forum Magnum, or simply the Forum.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Via dei Fori Imperiali, 00186 Rome Italy

    The Via dei Fori Imperiali (formerly Via dei Monti, then Via dell'Impero) is a road in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, that runs in a straight line from the Piazza Venezia to the Colosseum. Its course takes it over parts of the Forum of Trajan, Forum of Augustus and Forum of Nerva, parts of which can be seen on both sides of the road. Since the 1990s, there has been a great deal of archeological excavation on both sides of the road, as significant Imperial Roman relics remain to be found underneath it.

    Our tour guide Jan was awesome and knowledgeable. It was an unbelievable experience. The temperature was 100 degrees during that day, and he made sure we were all safe from the sun and well hydrated at all times so the experience could be enjoyable.
