Colosseum

Amaze pupils with the monumental size and grandeur of the world’s largest surviving structure of Roman antiquity, the scene of the legendary and savage gladiatorial games. 

This, the largest monument of Ancient Rome, seated more than 50,000 spectators in its day. Your pupils will see the location where fights between men and beasts, gladiatorial contests, races and simulated naval battles took place.

Guided Walking Tour

Guided walks can be tailored to your requirements. Here's a suggested three hour walk which includes the best of the baths, temples and theatres of Ancient Rome. Visit the Baths of Caracalla and then on to Circus Maximus to see this ancient Roman chariot racing stadium. At the Forum Boarium, site of ancient Rome's meat market, your pupils will be able to view two small temples, the Temple of Hercules Victor and the Temple of Portunus, which are among the best preserved religious structures from Rome's republican era.

Make sure you tell the truth at the Bocca della Verita - the Mouth of Truth! This carved image of a man-like face, located in the portico of the church of Santa Maria, is famous for its role as a lie detector and, it was believed that if you told a lie when your hand was in the mouth of the sculpture then your hand would be bitten off! Walk up to the ancient, open-air Theatre of Marcellus where you will also find the Portico d'Ottavia and finish your tour with a visit to Isola Tiberina where you will see the Ponte Fabricio, a 1st century BC Roman Bridge.

 

Spanish Steps

Situated in Piazza di Spagna, these 18th century, majestic steps built in Baroque style are today a regular meeting place for Italians.

St Peter’s Basilica

In Catholic tradition, this is the burial site of its namesake. Famous as a place of pilgrimage and for its historical associations. Like all the earliest churches in Rome, St Peter’s has its entrance to the east and the apse at the west of the building.

Ancient tradition suggests that St Peter’s Basilica was built where Peter, the apostle who is considered the first Pope, was crucified and buried in AD64. Today, the chapel houses many masterpieces.

This is the most prominent building inside the Vatican City, its dome being a dominant feature of the Roman skyline. Papal ceremonies take place here due to its size, proximity to the Papal residence, and location within the Vatican City walls.

Trevi Fountain

Rome’s famous Baroque fountain is the largest in the city and the most beautiful in the world. A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome. The fountain is worldwide famous but many people do not know the history and the secrets hidden behind its construction.

 

Vatican Museums (including the Sistine Chapel)

The most famous chapel in the world, decorated by the greatest artists of the Renaissance. The Sistine Chapel and the Stanze della Segnatura, decorated by Raphael, are on the visitor route through the Vatican Museums. This chapel represents a collection quite unique in the history of painting.

 

The Roman Forum

This site holds the remains of what once was the civic and political heart of the Roman Empire. The site was excavated in the 19th and 20th centuries.
