Rome Roman Forum – Colosseum – Circus Maximus – Caracalla’s Baths Tour – Rome private tour – The Roman Forum is considered the heart of ancient Rome. It is the site where the events of importance of the Republican and Imperial Rome took place. Walking on the original path of the Via Sacra, the main road of ancient Rome, you will be able to enter the heart of the ancient Roman empire.
Long the way, you will be able to see remains of public buildings (Roman Senate and Roman Basilicas), monuments (the Arch of Titus, Constantine, and Septimius Severus), Temples (the Temple of the Vestal Virgins), and the exact site where Caesar’s body was cremated.
The Forum was the religious, political, commercial center of ancient Rome and is full of landmarks and remains of buildings which still show the powerful presence in the history of the eternal City.
Roman Forum – Colosseum – Circus Maximus – Caracalla’s Baths Tour continues next to the Roman Forum. After walking few minutes up a short slope, we can reach the top of the Palatine hill, the site of Rome’s foundation, and the place the Roman emperors chose to build the imperial residence. We shall visit the foundation area, where legends and history blend in a bit of space, and the imposing ruins of the Imperial Palace.
Then continue with a short stretch from the Palatine. We arrive in the Colosseum (Flavian Amphitheater) area, built by the Flavian emperors, the most famous monument of ancient Rome, and the emblem of its eternity.
Set in a valley among other great monuments such as the Arch of Constantine, the Temple of Venus and Rome, and the remains of the Ludus Magnus, the barracks of the gladiators, the Colosseum preserves the fascination and the air of mystery of Rome’s glory. During our visit, we shall bring to life the shows performed in the amphitheater: gladiators’ combats, huntings of wild animals, executions, naval battles. Moreover, you will have a detailed description of the building, its construction, development, and use during centuries up to the present time.
Following the Rome Roman Forum – Colosseum – Circus Maximus – Caracalla’s Baths Tour path, we’ll walk few minutes, and we shall be in front of the Circus Maximus, the site of the Roman chariots races. Now it is just a large valley but with noticeable remains showing the structure of the curved East end. The circus, famous through Hollywood’s “Ben Hur,” had an unbelievable capacity of more than 250,000 spectators who sat on long tiers of seats.
After a short walk, we enter the Baths of Caracalla, a huge testimony of imperial Rome’s grandeur. You will visit this ancient public spa, at its time the largest in Rome, capable of hosting more than 1500 bathers. Built up in the early third century under the Severian dynasty, they were inaugurated in 212 A.D. by the emperor Caracalla.
The brick-built baths are a masterpiece of Roman architecture, keeping a halo of charm. Now visitors can see imposing vaulted rooms, domed octagons, exedrae, entrances, and parts of the baths heating system, along with large and remarkable fragments of fine polychrome floor-mosaics.
