Imagine spectaculars shows and gladiators fighting men, lions, and tigers. Leave the Colosseum to see the Arch of Constantine and be led into the heart of the ancient world: the Roman Forum. Your licensed guide will “bring to life” vendors, politicians speaking to the crowd, judges sentencing criminals, teachers surrounded by their students as well as priests worshipping pagan gods or predicting the future.
