The vestiges of the Roman Empire abound in Rome’s historical center with iconic monuments like the Colosseum and Pantheon, and archaeological sites like the Roman Forum, and Circus Maximus. You will have the opportunity to view some of these remarkable historical landmarks on this Rome tour.
Stroll through Colosseum Square surrounded by Rome's grand ancient Roman monuments. Colosseum Square is dominated by the iconic symbol of Rome: the Colosseum!
Built in 79 AD, the Colosseum is the largest ancient amphitheater ever built and continues to be the largest standing amphitheater in the world able to accommodate 50,000-80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was used for gladiatorial combats, re-enactments of famous battles, mock sea battles, animal hunts, theatrical dramas, and public executions.
The amphitheater was named the Flavian Amphitheater after the dynasty family of Emperors Vespasian and his son Titus who presided over the amphitheater’s construction. Its common name, Colosseum, is believed to derive from the colossal 30-meter-tall bronze statue of Emperor Nero (the Colossus of Nero) which stood in the proximity of the amphitheater which was previously the vestibule of Nero’s Domus Aurea.
Near the Colosseum is the unmissable Arch of Constantine. This victory arch was erected in 315 AD to commemorate Emperor Constantine’s victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312 AD.
Behold the spectacular view of the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum in the distance from a special terrace on top of Capitoline Hill. This special spot is one of the most picturesque in Rome, so don’t forget to have your camera handy!
The Roman Forum was a rectangular square that was the hub of Ancient Rome’s commercial, political, religious, and judicial life. The Forum was comprised of many important government buildings, temples, and victory arches whose grand ruins we can still admire today.
A short distance from the Colosseum, in what used to be known as the Valley of Murcia located between Palatine Hill and Aventine Hill once stood Circus Maximus (Circo Massimo), the largest Roman chariot-racing stadium ever built.
In its former glory, the Circus Maximus became a model for circuses throughout the Roman Empire. The stadium was large enough to accommodate over 150,000 spectators gathered to view thrilling chariot races. The stadium remained in use until 549 AD, after which, it was abandoned and left to decay. Over the centuries, it was demolished so its stones could be used for new building projects in Rome.
Today, only an outline and a few small ruins remain of this ancient stadium, and the area serves as a public park. It merits a brief stop to have an idea of how big this stadium used to be and to imagine how splendid it must have been with the grand palaces on Palatine Hill serving as a spectacular backdrop.
The Pantheon is one of the oldest and best-preserved ancient monuments built in 126 AD as a pagan temple. The temple was dedicated to all gods, with its name combining the word Pan (all) and Theion (gods).
The Pantheon has been in continuous use throughout history having been transformed in the 7th century from a pagan temple into a church dedicated to Saint Mary and the Martyrs.
Upon stepping inside the circular monument, you will notice its oculus in the center of the coffered dome above providing light and ventilation inside the monument. The oculus is open to the elements, allowing in both sunshine and rain. When it rains, the water drains below the floor through a drainage system.
Some of Italy’s most important figures have been buried inside the Pantheon: Kings Vittorio Emanuele II and Umberto I, Queen Margherita, and the celebrated Renaissance artist Raphael.
In front of the Pantheon is Piazza della Rotonda, a lovely square surrounded by pastel-colored historical buildings with outdoor cafes and restaurants. The center of the square is adorned with a large fountain surmounted by an obelisk.
One of the most fun-filled things to do in the Eternal City is exploring Rome’s grand outdoor piazzas: the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and Piazza Navona.
The Spanish Steps is famous for its elegantly curved 18th-century stairway that connects the Baroque Fontana della Barcaccia (Fountain of the Old Boat), at the bottom of Piazza di Spagna, to the French church of Trinita dei Monti and the Sallustiano Obelisk on top.
The Trevi Fountain is the most famous Baroque fountain in the world! Crowds always gather around the gushing fountain and its nautical statues for the opportunity to throw a coin over their shoulder and wish for a return visit to the Eternal City of Rome.
From La Dolce Vita to Three Coins In A Fountain, the Trevi Fountain has been featured in many classic films.
Piazza Navona is quite a unique square as it was built on top of the 1st century AD Roman Stadium of Emperor Domitian where competitive games (agone) were held.
You can recognize the outline of the ancient stadium in the oblong shape of the square encircled by grand palazzi and the church of Sant’Agnese in Agone.
Three remarkable fountains grace the Piazza Navona, the most significant being Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana del Quattro Fiumi) in center. This elaborate fountain represents four major rivers of the known continents Renaissance Era: The Nile River (representing Africa), the Danube River (representing Europe), the Ganges River (representing Asia), and the Rio del la Plata River (representing the Americas). On top of the fountain, a copy of an Egyptian obelisk was erected with the symbol of the Pamphili family.
Not to be missed on our Post Cruise Eternal tour is a stop in St Peter’s Square. Defined by two massive Doric colonnades designed to “embrace” visitors in the maternal arms of the church, the elliptical square can accommodate up to 300,000 people.
St Peter’s Square faces Saint Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in Christendom. The basilica of today is not the original St Peter’s Basilica which was built in the 4th century by Emperor Constantine above the burial site of Saint Peter the Apostle.
The current Saint Peter’s Basilica was commissioned by Pope Julius II in 1506, and it was completed in 1626 during the Renaissance period. Among the great masters who contributed to this architectural wonder were Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Carlo Modeno, Michelangelo, Bramante, and Raphael.
In the center of St Peter’s Square stands a 25-meter-tall red granite Vatican Obelisk, an uninscribed ancient Egyptian obelisk that was originally erected in the ancient Egyptian city of Heliopolis.
** If the Basilica is open for visits, or if the security lines to access the basilica are not too long, you might have the opportunity to visit St Peter's Basilica. If visiting St Peter’s Basilica, you may skip visiting the Papal Basilica of St Paul Outside the Walls unless you wish to extend your tour by the hour which can be accommodated at Per Hour Fees. Please contact us for more information.
Exult in a visit to the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, one of Rome’s four major papal basilicas, and one of the Seven Pilgrim Churches of Rome. This magnificent basilica is significantly less crowded than St Peter’s, and without the prohibitively long security lines and wait times much easier to visit.
The Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls was originally built in the 4th century AD by the Roman Emperor Constantine over what was believed to have been the burial site of Saint Paul the Apostle. In the early 13th century, a graceful cloister and monastery were added to the Basilica’s complex. A fire nearly destroyed the basilica in the late 1880s, but thanks to Pope Leo XII's donations, the basilica was rebuilt exactly as it had been when it was new.
Upon arriving at the Basilica, you will see the welcoming quadriportico, the atrium that precedes the basilica. Surrounded by large columns, the courtyard is dominated by a large spectacular statue of Saint Paul. The facade of the basilica is embellished with glittering mosaics representing the four prophets: Jeremiah, Isaia, Ezechiel, and Danial. Twelve lambs signifying the apostles drink from four rivers that represent the gospels.
The elegant interior of the Basilica is comprised of colossal marble columns, spectacular mosaic portraits of all the popes from St Peter’s to John Paul II, imposing statues, and paintings. The basilica’s main altar is surmounted by a resplendent gothic baldaquin.
Beneath the altar is the tomb of Saint Paul. Noteworthy is the chains that bound Saint Paul when he was a prisoner in Rome from 61-63 A.D. These chains are displayed in a gold reliquary near the Apostle’s tomb.
Please NOTE that when visiting churches and religious venues in Italy, a modest dress code is required for both men and women to be granted entrance: shoulders and knees must be covered at all times. Visitors who do not comply with the modest dress code are turned away (particularly at St Peter’s Basilica)
