VIP Caesar's Palace Walking Tour with Colosseum and Roman Forum

VIP Caesar's Palace Walking Tour with Colosseum and Roman Forum

Your small group will get unparalleled access to newly-opened ancient Roman houses. Admire beautiful frescoes and architecture that predate the Colosseum by a century. Learn from your expert guide about the life of Emperor Augustus, Caesar’s heir and the founding father of the Ancient Roman empire.

Please Note: Due to a complete closure at the houses of Augustus & Livia with no announced date of reopening, this tour is currently visiting with special access at other incredible, frescoed ancient Roman houses built in the same period. Guides promise the experience is just as good and the rest of the tour remains unchanged.

Visit the Colosseum, the greatest arena of Antiquity where blood sport was elevated to a national obsession and learn about its important political role in the empire.

Wander the ruins of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill while your guide will tell stories that bring ancient Rome to life.

Enjoy skip the line access at all the sites you visit in a group of 15 people or fewer - so your tour is as relaxed and stress-free as possible.

Description

Tour Details

Your VIP Caesar’s Palace Tour will take you beyond security gates into the home of one of history’s great leaders. You will admire incredible frescoes and architecture as you learn about the fascinating lives that unfurled here, with appearances from Mark Anthony and Cleopatra...and rumors of murder by poisoning. This amazingly well-preserved palace is every bit as impressive as Pompeii but sits directly in the heart of Rome.

Please Note: Due to a complete closure at the houses of Augustus & Livia with no announced date of reopening, this tour is currently visiting with special access at other incredible, frescoed ancient Roman houses built in the same period. Guides promise the experience is just as good and the rest of the tour remains unchanged.

Afterwards, head to the Colosseum to learn about the astounding blood sports that took place there. With Skip the Line Access, you won’t waste time in long ticket lines for a fully-guided tour of the first and second levels.

On this VIP Ancient Rome tour, you’ll also stroll through the Roman Forum where money-lenders, temples and debate forums once hosted the teaming civic life of the ancient city. Visit the Temple of The Vestal Virgins, climb the Palatine Hill for a lesson in the mythic founding of the city by Romulus and Remus, and learn of the great victories that inspired the Arches of Constantine and Titus.

With skip-the-line access at all sites, an expert guide and a small group of 15 people or fewer, this is the perfect tour for those who want an insight into Roman history that goes far beyond the conventional tourist trail and introduces you to some of Antiquity’s greatest sites.

 

Important

  • Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate guests with mobility impairments, wheelchairs or strollers on this tour.
  • There is a rule at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities) and all guests must now pass through a security check before entering the Colosseum.
  • The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although your tickets will be pre-booked with Skip the Line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. Guides expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).
  • The Colosseum is subject to occasional closures. The Colosseum administration is usually aware of this and informs guides the day before of a given closure. On the Order Form, you will be asked to provide detailed contact information in the event that guides need to reach you to reschedule your tour.
  • Comfortable walking shoes recommended.
  • Gratuities to guides are appreciated but never obligatory.
  • Please note that the tour meeting time is 15 minutes prior to the start time. No refunds or re-bookings can be provided for late arrivals or no shows after tour commencement or departure.
