What was Rome like 2000 years ago?
It was a metropolis of 2 million inhabitants, with richly decorated and colorful streets, state-of-the-art aqueducts, fountains, restaurants, temples and places to have fun.
Can we still see these things? Of course we can! With a little help from our imaginations, I will make the ruins come alive and leave you with a completely new perspective of the ancient Roman city.
We will start our tour with the Colosseum, the symbol of our city. How can we make it even more special? Experience the same entrance that the gladiators used 2000 years ago,to go into the arena. You will be able to feel what they felt going inside where thousands of people were waiting for them yelling and cheering, lions and tigers were ready to fight and the light of the burning sun made everything even more challenging.
Next, we will walk through the Roman forum where you will get to know the ancient Romans, through their stories in addition to the most important information about their art and history of course. We will discover together how modern they actually were…maybe we haven't changed so much after all!
Know before you go:
• A moderate amount of walking is involved
• Be prepared to climb uneven steps and explore an archeological site (wear suitable shoes)
• You may want to bring a small umbrella to block the sun as well as unexpected, sudden rainfall
• Large bags and backpacks are not allowed inside the Colosseum
