The center of the social life in ancient Rome was the Roman Forum, built in a valley between the Palatine Hill and the Capitoline Hill. Our driver will give you all the information about one the most important Rome sights, starting from when this area was just a marsh, then it was drained and at first a market was here. After this first phase the importance of this place increased and it began the center of all public life in Rome: religious, political, social, economical. In the Roman Forum there were meetings of the Senate, trials, elections, public feasts. Commerce, money lending, all kind of business found their center in the Roman Forum. Obviously the Roman Forum changed during the centuries and some of it functions moved to other places but the importance of the Roman Forum as a symbol of Ancient Rome never declined.
After the visit to the Roman Forum your tour driver will explain you the highlights of the Roman Colosseum, for sure the symbol of ancient Rome and the absolute must visit of every Rome Private Tour. You'll discover it is called Colosseum because of the huge statue of Nero, called "Colossus", that was nearby. It was a 30 m high bronze statue originally in the Domus Aurea but then moved by the emperor Hadrian near to the Colosseum. And you will be astonished to know that it took just 8 years to build the Colosseum, the highest building in ancient Rome! Nowadays the Colosseum looks very different from when it was built and this because once it was covered with white travertine stone but during the Middle Ages and Renaissance its travertine stone was used in many churches in Rome, for example Saint Peter's Basilica.
Tickets to visit the Roman Colosseum cost Euro 12, are valid for two days and include visit to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. So if you are still in the Eternal City the day after your Rome private tour with Tiber Limousine Service you can visit the Palatine Hill on you own.
