Tour description

Rome wasn't built in a day, and it's tough to fit it into one. That's why we've devised this private excursion, where you can combine your fun, family-friendly tour of the imperious Colosseum with a private Cooking Class, where you will learn how to make an authentic Italian meal. After being picked up from Civitavecchia, you'll be transported to the architectural marvel that is the Flavian Amphitheater (more famously known as the Colosseum!). Once home to scenes of gladiatoral combats, naval battles (yes, naval battles) and executions, withour Skip the Line tickets you'll have plenty of time for an intriguing journey into its tales and legends.  

Also central to discovering the Eternal City’s past, we will view the impressive Circus Maximus, home to the city's most famous chariot races. We'll explore the Roman Forum, the site of intrigue and scandal as Roman politicians plotted and conspired against each other. And we'll enjoy a picturesque panoramic of the Palantine Hill, the Hollywood of the ancient world, home to Rome's rich and famous. 

Following this historical experience, we will head to a gorgeous 17th Century Palazzo for a private Cooking Class. Learn how to make a tasty Italian meal, while enjoying a stunning, historical palace across from The Senate and around the corner from Piazza Navona. Be a true Italian chef and decide between Pasta Making Class or Pizza Making Class, followed by homemade gelato or tiramisù. This private full-day tour is ideal for those coming to Rome on a shore excursion, when time is precious and experiencing culture is a must.
