This is a unique experience, a new tour, a thematic tour to discover the real history of Gladiators admired by men and loved by women. I will lead you into the past at the origin of the gladiatorial fight. Gladiators were prisoners, criminals, slaves or paid volunteers and the fights and shows involved wild animals. We will enter the Colosseum to see where gladiators accompanied by dancers, jugglers, priests and musicians fought, won and died. We will walk where the emperors would have walked in the past to follow the show and to sentence to life or death the gladiators. The Colosseum built in 70/72 a. d is still nowadays impressive with its massive structure. We will then reach the Roman Forum, the central political, commercial and religious area of the ancient city of Rome. Looking at the ruins I will recreate with historical facts everyday Roman's life.
We will start our visit with the Amphitheatre Flavian ( nicknamed Colosseum). We will continue our visit to reach and enter the Roman Forum and we will finish along Via Dei Fori Imperiali looking at the ruins of the Imperial Forum.
Please note that for safety reasons the Colosseum can accommodate up to 3. 000 people at once. This could lead to delays in access to the site, even for pre-booked visitors. For security reasons, all visitors and their luggage shall be screened.
