Expert Rome tour guide
Fully private and exclusive
Skip-the-line Colosseum


“Ancient Rome in Two Hours” is a fully private, expedited tour of ancient Rome for visitors who wish to fast-track the must-see sites with their own guide.

You will be shown around the inside of the Colosseum, see the base of the Colossus of Nero, and the Arch of Constantine. From there you’ll walk up ancient Via Sacra into the Roman Forum, wherein you will learn how and why myths and legends were to become such powerful political tools in ancient Rome. Your guide will explain the history of all the ruins and remains, including Lapis Niger (dating back to c. 750 BC), the Comitium, House of the Vestals, Column of Phocas, and Tarpeian Rock. You will ascend the legendary Palatine Hill from the Roman Forum, where it is believed that the Lupercal (where Romulus and Remus were found) is still concealed. On the Palatinum you’ll see the House of Livia, look down on Nero’s revolving dining room, and stroll through 17th century gardens and aviaries above the Flavian Palace and Domitian’s Greek Circus. This extra walk over the Palatine Hill lends the tour a degree of exclusivity.

Meeting point info will be sent in booking confirmation e-mail. For security reasons, backpacks, rucksacks, large handbags, luggage etc. are banned inside the Coliseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill.
