Explore two of the most breathtaking remnants of ancient Rome. Accompanied by an experienced guide, you will visit the Domus Aurea and the Colosseum during a three-hour guided tour.
Start your day at the Colosseum, where you can skip the queues and immerse yourself in the fascinating history of this iconic place. Your expert guide will tell you about the hunts, executions and gladiator fights that made the amphittheatre famous.
Then you will visit the Titanic Villa Domus Aurea, which once stretched between 100 and 300 hectares and was decorated with marble, frescoes, semi-precious stones and gold. Follow Nero's footsteps as your guide leads you to the old rooms filled with frescoes and breathtaking Roman architecture.
If you like, you can end the morning with a tour through the ruins of the world-famous Roman Forum and the Palatine.
Gratuities to guides are appreciated but never obligatory.
Please note that the tour meeting time is 15 minutes prior to the start time.
The visit at the Domus Aurea will be guided by a special site guide as the site is still an active archaeological dig.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to accommodate guests with mobility impairments, wheelchairs or strollers on this tour.
If you wish to visit the Forum and Palatine Hill (non guided), you need to do so directly when the tour ends in order to be able to enter the sites.
At the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities). All guests must pass a security check before entering the Colosseum.
The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although your ticket is pre-booked with skip the line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached.
The Colosseum is subject to occasional closures. The Colosseum administration is usually aware of this and informs the tour operator the day before of a given closure. Please provide the tour operator with detailed contact information in the event that we need to reach you to reschedule your tour.
