What To Expect
A symbol of ancient Rome, the impressive amphitheater is rich with history. Hear tales of the ancient gladiators who fought wild beasts to the delight of the bloodthirsty crowds, and learn about the cruelty and clemency of the emperors who presided over the games.
As you learn about the gladiatorial games, explore the areas that are normally off-limits to the general public. See the underground chambers where wild animals were kept in cages, and wander along the passageways that gladiators once paced along.
From the Colosseum, head into the heart of the Roman Forum to learn about daily life in ancient times. Amble around the temples and arches as you listen to tales of the politics and religion of Imperial Rome.
