We begin our tour on Oppian Hill, one of the famous “Seven Hills” that offers great views of the Colosseum, the most famous of all Rome’s landmarks and the centre of the ancient city. Walk down the hill taking in the surrounding vistas towards the Colosseum. Here we skip the line and fast track past the crowds to start our guided tour. As you explore the remains of this wonderful Amphitheatre, you official guide will bring the scene to life with exciting recollections of days long ago, when Gladiators fought for their lives in front of baying crowds. Moving on we shall make a short stop at the Arch of Constantine, which spans the Via Triumphalis, the route taken by Emperors when returning to the city in triumph. From here we go to the most famous of Rome’s hills, Palatine Hill. Have your camera ready for the superb views of the Forum and Nero’s Circus Maximus where spectacular chariot races were held. Then we go down to walk along the Via Sacra or Sacred Way which crosses Forum and was part of the ceremonial route taken by the Emperors. Our tour ends with a visit to the temple where we find the altar dedicated to Julius Cesar and where today visitors still lay flowers and light candles.
