EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION
WATCH ANCIENT ROME COME TO LIFE BEFORE YOUR EYES
Introducing a totally new way to take an ancient Roman forum tour.
Your evening starts at the rumored assassination place of Julius Caesar where you’ll meet your small group and one of our expert guides. After a brief intro to Roman history, they'll take you to a hidden balcony overlooking Roman Forum and fill your head with stories of emperors and scandals in the Senate in order to give you the context you need to understand the next portion of your tour.
Descending to street level you’ll step inside another 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.
On this Roman forum tour you’ll see ruins reconstructed from the ground up. Using state-of-the-art light projections, columns are rebuilt to their full height and entire buildings are restored. On one wall, you’ll watch as the light show 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.
This is the perfect experience for those with an interest in Ancient Rome or for anyone who wants something a little different from their vacation
