Skip the Line: Ancient Rome and Colosseum Half-Day Walking Tour:
Perfect for first-time visitors, this 3-hour, small-group morning tour starts with a gentle stroll up the Oppian Hill to enjoy unforgettable views of the Colosseum -- Ancient Rome's most iconic landmark. After heading back down, skip the long entrance lines of the Colosseum and enjoy priority access to explore this famous attraction with your expert guide. As you walk around the fascinating ground and first floors, hear stories from your guide about the amphitheater's intriguingly brutal past filled with bloodthirsty gladiators.

After leaving the Colosseum, head into Ancient Rome to see the Arch of Constantine before walking through the Roman Forum and up Palatine Hill. Your tour ends on Via Sacra, the main street that links the Colosseum to Capitoline Hill. Enjoy roughly two hours at your leisure. Explore the impressive ruins or have lunch at any of the several nearby restaurants (own expense) before your afternoon tour.

Best of Rome Walking Tour:
After rejoining your small group and guide at Piazza di Spagna, set off at a leisurely pace with your guide on a 2.5-hour walking tour. Heading to Rome's center, pass the beautiful Santa Maria del Popolo Church and hear interesting tales and legends such as how the hated Emperor Nero was buried near this church. Continue to the Spanish Steps that lead elegantly down from the church of Trinita dei Monti before taking a break by the majestic Trevi Fountain.

Continue with a stroll through Piazza Colonna, a stylish square considered by the ancient Romans as the center of the city. Then, enjoy a fantastic photo opportunity at the world-famous Pantheon, a unique historic temple with sleek marble columns. Follow your guide through bustling Piazza Navona, typified by its ornate fountains, Baroque architecture and lively sidewalk cafés. Read Less

We had such a great tour experience with Amanda as our guide. Her passion and knowledge for the Colosseum and The Roman Forum were unmatched, so much that we didn't want the afternoon to end! The only line we really had to wait was for security, but there was no bypassing that. Once inside she did a fantastic job navigating us through the features and crowds, peppering in historical bits and keeping things interesting while giving us plenty of time to explore and look around too before moving on to the ruins of the Forum. Great sense of humor, vast knowledge, friendly and welcoming, we'd book another tour with her in a heartbeat! Thanks Amanda!

The Rome Super Saver tour lived up to its description. The morning tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome was very entertaining and informative. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the sites and how to get through the crowds for the best views. In the afternoon we took the Walking Tour and it was just a great as the morning, with a different guide.

It was our understanding that this tour was an 8 hour tour. Actually, it was two 3 hour tours by two different tour guides and in two totally different locations of the city that we had to try to find on own own.1) The morning tour by a very pleasant, knowledgeable and caring young female tour guide, Julia, was a well organized walking tour which was quite enjoyable. We had to meet in front of the Coliseum by 9:45 am. Some people arrived by taxi. We chose to travel there by means of the Metro system from our hotel. It was somewhat of a challenge getting there, but we made it. We visited the outside and inside of the Roman Coliseum and the Roman Forum and Palatino. All in all, it was an enjoyable tour in which we learned a great deal about those two historical sites. And Julia's English was very easy to understand.2) For the afternoon tour, we had to travel to the Piazza di Spagna and meet up with our tour guide, Massimo. He was quite knowledgeable and had a good personality, but there was a lot of walking from the Piazza di Spagna to the Pantheon and beyond. My three complaints about this tour were 1) we had to travel to the Piazza di Spagna instead of being picked up at our hotel, 2) there was too much walking and when the tour was over, we were quite far from where we began and had to try our best to get back to our hotel on our own. It was a very long, confusing walk back to the Piazza di Spagna where we were able to catch the Metro. 3) We were quite disappointed that at least three people in our tour group continued to smoke throughout the tour, and our tour guide didn't say anything. They were chain smokers. I certainly would not recommend this tour for those who don't want to inhale second hand smoke. If we had known that, we certainly would not have booked this tour.

Our first time to Rome!
Our colosseum guide was so knowledgeable and made our tour so enjoyable with facts we were eager to learn! Was a very gracious tour guide.

Our afternoon guide, she was patient and stuck with her group, even with an hour delay with torrential storms. Can not thank you enough, we made it fun, shoe shopping on our wait!
