Ancient Romans dazzled the world with architectural feats and shocked them with arena games. The Colosseum revolutionized architectural engineering and inspired the world since it was built nearly 2,000 years ago. You will learn about the intricate inner workings and how it revolutionized public stadiums, the perilous life and fame of gladiators, the arena on which celebrated games took place for the entertainment of 50,000 spectators at a time. As we leave the Colosseum to visit the Roman Forum, we will walk past the Arch of Constantine and learn what it represents and why the Roman triumphal arches were copied all over the world in modern times. The Roman Forum was the political, economical and religious center of Rome for centuries, making it the most famous meeting place in all of the Roman Empire. I will take you through ancient cobble stoned streets lined with surviving ruins of majestic temples and basilicas, and explain the Roman life. Then we can enjoy the best view of the Forum from the top of the first hill of Rome, The Capitoline Hill to stand in the Square designed by the Supreme Genius, Michelangelo.
Just memorable, don't miss it !
