Guided Walking Tour to visit Ancient Rome
This is one of our most popular walking tours with a licensed tour guide in English. You will visit some of Rome’s ancient sites including the Colosseum and the Roman Forums and if you like, also the Capitoline Hill or the Palatine Hill. Rome's history spans more than two and a half thousand years, since its founding in 753 BC, with the union of rural villages. It was the capital city of the Roman Kingdom, the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire, which was the dominant power in Western Europe and the lands bordering the Mediterranean for over seven hundred years from the 1st century BC until the 7th century AD and the city is regarded as one of the birthplaces of western civilization. Since the 1st century AD Rome has been the seat of the Papacy and, after the end of Byzantine domination, in the 8th century it became the capital of the Papal States, which lasted until 1870. In 1871 Rome became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, and in 1946 that of the Italian Republic. There is so much to see but today we will concentrate on Rome’s ancient sites only. We will take care of your “skip the line” reservations so that you don’t waste time waiting in line. The cost of the ticket for the Colosseum is Euro 12.00 and also includes entrance to the Roman Forums and the Palatine Hill.
Note: We make museum reservations in order to avoid waiting in line.

We had a wonderful time in Italy and the drivers provided by Prestige Rent were great. I would like to complete a survey so I can provide my wonderful comments for the drivers. Does Prestge Rent have an electronic form I can complete.... Tressa G. CA USA
