What you'll do

I will meet you at a special spot right at the Colosseum where we can get to know each other before the tour begins. We will then jump back 2000 years as I take you on an adventure through Ancient Rome. Firstly I will take you into the Colosseum with priority access so we will not wait in the long ticket lines. We will spend around 45 minutes touring the arena where I will explain to you how it was built and show you the arena floor where the gory battles and spectacles took place. I will take you special spots, away from the crowds, where you can get a great view of the magnificent monument. From there we will make the short walk over to the Roman Forum where you will see the centre of civic and political life in Ancient Rome. I will show you the ruins of the ancient city, including the burial site of Julius Caesar and the Temple of the Vestal Virgins. We will also visit the Palatine Hill where I will give you a tour of the ruins of the Imperial Palaces and fill you in on the tumultuous history of the times.

Your hosts

Ciao, thank you for visiting my page. I am Roman born and raised and have this city running through my veins. I went to an international school in Rome for 12 years and speak English fluently without any accent. I love my city, I am immensely passionate about the rich culture and history that I was blessed to grow up with and I want to pass that passion onto those who come to visit Rome. I have been working in tourism in Rome for over ten years and have been providing tours of my city throughout that time. As a lifelong local I know exactly where to go and what to do to give my guests a truly authentic, off the beaten track, experience in Rome. My academic studies in history are important but it is the fact that I have grown up in this city and know it like the back of my hand that makes an experience with me authentic and one of a kind.

Where you'll be

We will begin at a special tranquil spot where we will have a perfect view of the Colosseum. We will then enter the Colosseum and although it is a popular site, I will give you a unique perspective and take you to spots inside that I believe are special and more fascinating. At the Roman Forum & Palatine Hill I will again take you to certain ruins which are the most interesting to me, such as, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins.
