What you'll do

This tour starts at the arch of Constantine, in the Colosseum square. After the meet and greet a short walk will take us straight to the Amphitheater entrance with a skip the line entrance to the Colosseum. By climbing the steps up to the corridor dividing the second by the third tier, several stops are planned to enjoy views and take some pictures to the interior as well as to the surrounding of the Colosseum. Entering from the arch of Titus, we will start the climbing of the Palatine Hill with views on terraces at different heights and a breathtaking one at the very top overlooking the Valley of the Forum. The main square in the downtown of Ancient Rome, the Forum, is where the tour ends in order to give you the opportunity to keep exploring on your own. Feel free to share with me your thoughts and feelings as I will be at your disposal for any additional question and curiosity. What makes my experience unique for my guests? I'll take you to the place where I did my Phd dissertation, to show you what we found and the way we "read" the layers, and how we turn history into archaeology. I'm eager to share my experience with you!

Ferdinando

Hi everyone! My name is Ferdinando, a PhD in archaeology and an official guide of Rome since 2009. I'm thrilled to meet you and take you around the eternal city! I believe a tour must be an interactive experience! Your sensibility, wishes, inclinations, tastes and background become mine, an essential contribution on my next tour. Exploring Rome with you is a moment of cultural exchange for me and a personal benefit not only as a tour guide but mainly as a person. I meet people and I travel with my imagination and so my philosophy is that touring Rome with me is never a one-way conversation, but a chance for a reciprocal growth.
