Colosseum, Forum and Palatine
Rome is a city of ruins. The antiquities are the core of its charme. This tour is the best option for a first encounter with the Roman past: entertainment, power and religion.
The Colosseum is the largest amphitheater ever built. For centuries it served the city of Rome as a place to host the brutal fights of the gladiators, to entertain the masses and make them feel strong, united and safe. More recently it has become an icon, religious, cultural, architectural. The Forum is the heart of Ancient Rome. It served as a common meeting center for over a thousand years. A stratification of ages and traditions is still there. The senate house, the place of Cesar’s funeral, the glorious arches of triumph. The Palatine is the Imperial residence, as well as the place of the earliest memories of Rome. The massive ruins of halls and gardens, thermal baths and fountains overlook the Circus Maximus, the Forum and the churches of the Christian Rome.
