Every roman general or emperor who rode in triumph through the Forum along the Via Sacra (the road you will walk along) had to pass under this arch.

Your personalized tour will visit the Colosseum in depth. After this visit you will enter to the Roman Forum where you will walk around the most famous monuments like Titu's Arch. Ascend to the Capitoline Hill where Diocletian built his fantastic Palace, Circus and now a beautiful small museum. Your expert art historian will bring it all back to life!.

This in-depth private tour of Imperial Rome is hosted by a professional guide specializing in art history. Please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at the time of booking to alert your guide, so they can prepare for your private tour.

Wow, what an amazing day. Our guide Luca was incredible, blending archeological research with historical account. Our tour started on Palatine Hill as the Colloseum lines were mixed resulting in long waits even for those with passes. All the better as we explored Palatine Hill at a leisurely pace with very few other tourists. Upon our return to the Colloseum, Luca's experience with the confusing line system resulted in a very short wait for entrance.

Luca's knowledge was expansive and his courtesy for our comfort knew no bounds. A wonderful introduction to Roman history by a guide who is obviously passionate about his work and was able to continue with impeccable English even after my own English brain began to melt in the July heat. Thank you Luca.

Having a private quide massively enhanced out experience in the ancient city. Our guide Luca explained architectural structures and their social functions amongst the ruins. He made the very hot day manageable and enjoyable.
