The Basics

The site is most often visited on three-hour tours that combine a visit to the ancient city with a Colosseum tour. Whether you choose a private tour or small-group tour, it's wise to visit with an expert guide who can help you navigate the large space and bring the ruins to life with true stories of gladiators, Roman emperors, and Julius Caesar. After your visit, check out the adjacent ruins at Circus Maximus or pay a visit to the Capitoline Museums to see the display of classical Roman empire sculptures.

Colosseum Underground Tour with Roman Forum, Palatine Hill & Gladiator Arena
Marco was a great tour guide with a lot of knowledge on his city! Definitely recommend. Also it was really great enjoying everything without the crazy crowds that are usually there this time of year. But with covid, everything was a lot emptier

My tour guide joe ( Giuseppe) was amazing it was a really hot day and he kept stopping for us to refill water and try to stick as much as he can to the shade. He had a great English and helped bring the stones to life. I only recommend the tour . Money well spent

Private Colosseum & Roman Forum Tour for Kids & Families w hotel pickup in Rome
It was a hot day in July when we visited the Coliseum with our three children ages 4, 8 and 10. Our guide (Maria) did what I thought was impossible and kept them interested and engaged. The contest between kids and parents was a great way to keep them thinking. Maria is incredibly knowledgeable—she knows everything.

Very interesting experience with a nice guide. He succeeded in captivating my wife who was initially not so interested. Among all these stones, his explantaions were unmissable to assemble the pieces of a rich history. We were also lucky with a warm but no heavy weather. Great!

When to Get There

As the Roman Forum shares an admission ticket with the Colosseum, it stays consistently busy throughout the day and often has long lines. Choose a walking tour with priority access to jump the queue and maximize your time.

Discovering the Roman Forum Ruins

Inside the archaeological area, stick to the Forum’s main thoroughfare, Via Sacra, to pass by important ruins such as the Julia Curia and the house of the Vestal Virgins. Some of the forum’s most impressive ruins include the white marble arch of Settimio Severo, the first-century Arch of Titus, and the remains of the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine. If you can’t get enough of ancient Rome, there’s plenty more history just outside the city with day trips available to Pompeii and the Appian Way.
