You’ll spend just an hour inside the Colosseum, perfect for if you have kids or a tight schedule, but you’ll exit having learned a lot about the incredible and bloody history of the landmark and with many cool photos.

Guided Tour of Palatine Hill

The Palatine Hill is full of magnificent ancient palaces, covered in stunning mosaics and Rome’s most elite citizens once lived inside. One even houses an amphitheater. However, that isn’t all that Palatine Hill is known for. It is also said to be where Rome was founded in 753 B.C. by Romulus. Your expert guide will tell you all about the majestic ruins while you enjoy the stunning views. 

Ancient Roman Forum

Here, your guide will help you explore the Roman Forum, what was once ancient downtown Rome. Some of the most famous ancient buildings include the Temple of Julius Caesar, Arch of Titus, the Temple of Vesta and the Roman Senate House. Skip the lines and walk the same streets as some of Rome’s most prominent historical figures.

Colosseo and forum tour

Wonderful tour, lovely guide. Super hot weather which was beyond control of tour, but our guide tried to get us into shade whenever possible. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, with great sense of humour. I definitely would recommend using The Roman Guy.

Wonderful despite the torrential rain

We took this tour a few days ago on an afternoon when Rome experienced a very impressive thunderstorm. The rain hit quickly and very hard. Due to the rain flooding the underground and it also preventing access to the arena floor, our guide Amanda tried to show us other areas we could access, but they then decided to Close the Colosseum. Despite all of this going wrong Amanda was really an amazing guide, she was able to give us as much information as possible and eek out the time for us (once the rain stopped) to allow us to get some photos. Because we had been rained off of the Colosseum she spent extra time at the Roman forum and Palantine hill and gave us a really great tour. We didn’t feel we had missed out on anything and despite the weather smiled the whole way through. Amanda is a very engaging guide and I am grateful that she was our guide. She also gave some wonderful dinner recommendations- I only wish I had booked other tours with them!
