This itinerary is an amazing journey into ancient Rome’s early days and ultimate splendors.
We’ll start our walking tour visiting what once was the grandest stage for gladiators fights, the Colosseum
and now the most known roman building in the world.
Steps away the 3 arcaded arch of triumph dedicated to Constantine
opens our way into the a large archeological site including: the Palatine hill
, the cradle of Rome in the 8th century BC to become later the residence of the Roman emperors and the view of Circus Maximus
, the largest chariot races hippodrome in the world. Continuing our tour we enter now the Roman forum passing by the Arch of Titus
and along the Via Sacra
where winning emperors paraded into the old city.
The Roman forum
is the true heart of ancient Rome. The very first public area where all preeminent buildings stood both related to ancient cults and public life. Still standing are the Senate
and the two temples of Romulus
– and – Antonino and Faustina
while of those in ruins the Temple of Vesta
and the Basilicas
are the most important.
Our tour ends on top of Capitol Hill
the most sacred area of the ancient city transformed by Michelangelo in a perfect example of Renaissance square. Before leaving this area we’ll enjoy a breathtaking view of all of the Roman forum and Palatine hill
from the back side of Rome’s city hall.
