What you'll do

You will begin the tour with an expert guide exploring the underground ruins of Cesar’s palace and the Roman Forum in an intimate small group setting, and then venture over to the Colosseum with our VIP skip-the-line tickets.

Cesar’s palace hasn’t been available for public access in 700 years and we finally get the chance to explore the ruins of an area wealthy of history that for so many years were unreachable due to it’s catastrophic past with earthquakes and fires. You will get to experience a virtual reality segment that puts you right in the middle of what it looked like when Cesar was ruling. We will delve into the past of 7 sites throughout the palace and ancient city that are only available through our VIP ticket.

Following this we will take advantage of our special access tickets by skipping the lines at the Colosseum. You will be enriched with the infamous bloody history of the gladiators and Romans by exploring the ancient stadium. Your guide will take you to the first and second levels of the Colosseum and then give you time to do a little exploring of your own.

Originally from the United States I’ve been lucky enough to call Rome home the past 2 years. I spent time solo travelling through this amazing country and decided after working in finance for 6 years it was time to move abroad to the town I fell in love with, Roma!

I started my time here teaching English and also working for a tour company at the Colosseum in sales. During this time in the tourism industry I met a group of travel experts, archeologists and renowned guides that got me excited in furthering my career in tourism by providing once in a lifetime experiences all over the ancient city!

I’m looking forward to helping you plan your dream vacation to Italy so please don’t hesitate in contacting me!
