Tour description

This three-hour walking tour takes you through three of Rome's most fascinating sites. Your first stop is the Colosseum, the world's most iconic amphitheater. Then we'll wander the Roman Forum, an archaeological theme park of temples, basilicas, and monolithic triumphal arches. To round things of, we'll be exploring the storied basilica of St. Clemente. This fascinating medieval basilica perfectly represents the city of Rome. For hidden out of site beneath its floor is an underworld treasure just waiting to be explored.

Delve into the glorious past of Rome. Visit the mighty Colosseum, the architectural triumph of ancient Rome, and a classic symbol of its brutality. Your expert guide will bring the Colosseum to life, telling you stories about the gladiators, Emperors and spectators who took part in what was the show to see in Rome. Relive the legends and stories of this iconic Roman building.

Then, your guide will take you to explore the Roman Forum and will tell you all there is to know about the fascinating history of the true political, religious, and economic heart of ancient Rome. A place where political alliances were formed, conspiracies hatched, religious and civic duties performed, judgements passed, and trade agreements reached.

Next move onto a different yet equally iconic building: the Basilica of San Clemente. This is an archaeologist’s Pandora ’s Box with its three-tiered complex of buildings it will allow you to descend below the depths of earth into 2000 years of history.

The church has many guises: a 2nd century Mithraeum, the house of a Roman nobleman, a pagan temple, an ancient lower basilica dating back to the  4th century and decorated with frescoes and finally an upper layer Basilica dating back to the 12th century filled with mosaics. Delve underground beneath the basilica, and peel away the archaeological layers to transport yourself back in time.

The combination of Colosseum and Basilica San Clemente is a great way to engage with different aspects of Roman history.
