EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

WATCH ANCIENT ROME COME TO LIFE BEFORE YOUR EYES

It’s not often that the words “new” and “Ancient Rome” appear together, but that’s what we have here: A completely unique, new and exciting experience in an ancient Roman forum.

Your evening starts at a point rumored to be the assassination place of Julius Caesar. There you’ll meet your small group and one of our expert guides. They’ll lead you on a brief walk-through of Ancient Roman history, taking you to a hidden balcony to look out over the Roman Forum. Their job is to fill your head with stories of emperors and scandals in the senate and to give you the context you need to understand the next portion of your tour.

Descending to street level and then beyond, you’ll step inside Rome’s ancient forum through gates usually closed at this hour. Take a headset and follow the path. Your guide will stay with you to answer any questions but this is a truly immersive experience, so you may not need them.

As you walk around the ancient forum you’ll see Rome reconstructed from the ground up. Using advanced light projections, columns are rebuilt to their full height and entire buildings are restored. On one wall you’ll watch as the lightshow opens up the building layer-by-layer to reveal its fully-intact interior, complete with decorations, furniture and residents going about their business. Not sure what life was like here 2,000 years ago? You’ll watch moneylenders count out their gold, and see famous emperors and senators make an appearance. All the while, your audio headset plays music and commentary at crucial points.

Perfect for those with an interest in Ancient Rome or for anyone who wants something a little different from their vacation, this is one history class you won’t soon forget.
