Our visit of the archaeological area in Rome starts with the Colosseum, the largest Amphitheatre ever built under the Roman Empire, an iconic landmark made famous by the fights and spectacles that took place in this arena. We’ll find out which myths are based in reality and how exactly the Romans managed to come up with such extraordinary building solutions. The gentle slope of the Palatine Hill awaits us next, with the ruins of Augustus’ Imperial Palace and a stunning view of the city. Back on street level and below, we’ll enter the Roman Forum, the heart of all religious and political life in those times. After a short walk through Rome’s narrow alleys, the incredibly well-preserved dome-with-a-hole of the Pantheon will make you stop in your tracks. Does it actually rain inside? We’ll discover all about that and more by taking a look and discussing how this gravity-defying wonder was built. One of Rome’s most famous attractions, the Pantheon has played many roles in history without ever skipping a beat.
Please note the Pantheon closes 4.45pm on Saturdays and 10.30am on Sundays.
