The Eternal City

Ancient Rome

The tour of Ancient Rome can last from three to four hours and includes  visits to the main monuments and beautiful places of ancient Rome: the Colosseum, also known as the Flavian amphitheatre, was the largest and most monumental Roman amphitheatre in the first century A.D. It was home to some of the most famous gladiator and animal fights. From here the tour continues with a visit of  the Roman Forum. Located in the valley between the Capitoline and the Palatine Hills, it was the centre of the commercial, religious and political center  of ancient Rome. The tour continues at the  top of the Capitoline Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome and location of the Temple of Jupiter Optimus  Maximus dedicated to the Capitoline Triad (Jupiter, Juno and Minerva). From here it is a short walk to the sacred area of Largo Argentina, where the remains of four temples were found. They represent the most important complex of religious buildings from the Republican era, together with the remains of the Curia of Pompeo where Julius Caesar was killed. The tour ends at the Pantheon, which was built by Marcus Agrippa for the Emperor Augustus in 25-27 BC, and it was dedicated to all of the divinities of Olympus. Today it is a Christian Basilica called Santa Maria ad Martyres.
