  • Step off the beaten path on Palatine Hill and explore the ancient Roman villa of Caesar Augustus, featuring frescoes even more beautiful than those in Pompeii.
  • Skip long lines at the Colosseum to get straight inside. With a small group of 16 people or fewer and an expert guide, you'll explore this incredible amphitheater for a full hour.
  • Explore the Roman Forum, the remarkably preserved center of life in the ancient city, and immerse yourself in thousands of years of history.

Walks made it easy to enjoy the exact sites I wanted to see. Loved our tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and engaging. I will definitely be using Walks tours again!

Our VIP Caesar's Palace tour with Christina to the Colosseum with Special Access to Palatine Hill & the Forum was first class. Christina had a passion for these places and the knowledge to back it up. We were the beneficiaries. There is so much history packed into this area and Christina knew it backwards. A memorable experience!

Definitely worth getting a guided tour! We got access to so many extra spaces in the colosseum, the forum and went into the home of Augustus on the VIP Caesar's Palace: Colosseum Tour with Special Access Palatine & Forum. Our tour guide was patient and knowledgeable with excellent English and had a passion for the history and architecture. There were 14 in our group which was a manageable size. This requires extensive walking at a decent pace and several flights of stairs. There were 51 stairs at once in the colosseum stairs alone. Highly recommend if your health allows!

I love Walks. Only company I use given the originality of the tours offered and the exceptional guides that make history come to life.

The tour sites were incredible and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Only issue that we encountered was Caesar Augustus Palace being off limits to the tour for which we paid for. This was a disappointment as we booked the tour especially for this. Other than that, the experience was close to perfect and the tour guide was no exception to that.
