What you'll do

Discover the wonders of the Colosseum with me. We will meet by the monument and will then understand the development of the ancient city and how the central area of Ancient Rome changed through the centuries around the area of the Colosseum. This experience will take us inside the monument (tickets not included) where we will explore and understand the structure, the architecture, the building techniques and the innovations that the romans applied in the construction of one of the most famous monuments of the world. Once we figured out the structure we will be ready to talk about the games which it hosted: hunting games, death penalties, gladiator fights. I will help you immerge yourself into the Colosseum 2000 years ago, making it come back to life with the aid of visual reconstructions and my storytelling abilities. The Colosseum, however, has had a long life which continued, although dramatically changed, through the centuries: stadium, fortress, village: a fascinating travel through time, from the glories of the past to our modern digital era. We will of course also talk about the monuments which once or still surround the area: the temple of Rome and Venus, the Arch of Constantine and many more. The visit will end inside the Colosseum allowing you to explore on your own or rather continue with me to the Forum and Palatine hill (not included in the price).

Eva è una guida fantastica del Colosseo. Divertente, appassionata, premurosa, attenta ad illustrarci e spiegarci ogni aspetto del tour nei minimi dettagli, ogni aspetto del Colosseo sia fuori che dentro. Ci siamo sentiti davvero coinvolti, parte della storia e della narrazione. Nonostante un po' di pioggia, è stata davvero una splendida esperienza. SUPER consigliatissima!
