Explore Ancient Rome with a licensed guide on this half-day walking tour. Your tour will begin with skip-the-line access at the Colosseum, the famed amphitheater where gladiators once battled. Uncover centuries of history as you visit the Roman Forum and, time permitting, tour Michelangelo’s Campidoglio Square. Please note that, as Rome is a large, sprawling city, each walking tour we offer is carefully designed with a specific focus on the sites of one neighborhood. If you’re interested in seeing as many sites as possible, we recommend our Rome VIP Immersion.

Please note that this tour will not include the Colosseum on the first Sunday of every month.

  2. Amanda Baldino

    Our 4-hour tour with Caitlin was phenomenal! She was so thorough and knowledgeable, and was a joy to spend our morning with! You can feel her passion for the history of Rome and you leave with a lot of amazing bits of info you never knew (and some great pics since she knows all the good spots)!

    1000% recommend!

  3. Carol Dane

    Caitlin was so knowledgeable and willing to customize the tour to meet our needs. We totally got a true sense of Roman history. We learned so much from her and we were totally comfortable from the first moment.

  4. Radha Bachman

    Irene was our guide both for this and the Vatican City tour. A little snafu with tickets for the Ancient Rome Tour but she handled quickly and efficiently. Patient with the kids and heat. Kept the content light and fun. We’ll never forget learning about all of the water fountains around Rome from Irene. What an interesting tidbit! This was perfect for our family and we would recommend it to others.
