The Colosseum in Rome had over 80 entrances and could accommodate around 50,000 spectators. Learn the history behind this magnificent monument and all that surrounds it. Rome's most popular structure was built for three reasons... As a gift to the Roman Citizens from the Flavian Dynasty to increase their popularity, to stage various forms of entertainment, and of course to showcase Roman engineering techniques to the world. Festivals as well as games could last up to 100 days in the Colosseum. Your Crown Tour Guide will walk you through the Colosseum explaining the true brilliance behind the engineering of this structure. Listen to our Tour Guides' tales of the gladiators that so gallantly entertained hundreds of people.
Palatine Hill & Roman Forum
Your tour will then lead you on a journey through the Palatine Hill & Roman Forum where you will be able to admire the incredible ruins and enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum.
The Roman Forum was the social, political, religious and financial center of the Roman Empire and the most incredible site of Ancient Roman civilization with various structures still standing. All layers of Roman society rubbed shoulders together daily whether, for personal, business or political purposes, anyone from homeless beggars to rich senators could be found there.
The Palatine Hill is the foundation point of Rome and still holds today, many layers of history. You can find ruins from the early kingdom of Rome in 7th century BCE and the Roman Republic in the later centuries BCE to the jaw-dropping palace of Emperor Domitian in the Imperial Age. Further, you can see the more recent presence of the Farnese family during the Renaissance and that of Mussolini in the 20th century.
Picture perfect moments that are not to be missed when visiting the Eternal City, Rome.
