Before showing you how to buy this ticket which includes admission to these historical symbols of the power of the Roman Empire, we want to briefly describe them.





Coliseum

The Colosseum is one of the most loved and visited archaeological sites in the world. Built in the 1st century, it is located just east of the Roman Forum and is the largest of the amphitheaters built by the Roman Empire. Its name is due to the fact that on one side there was the Colossus of Nero, a large statue in honor of the emperor Nero.

It had a seating capacity of 50.000 spectators, with eighty rows in the stands, where spectators watched games and fights. The closest to the sand were the emperor and the senators and, gradually, the other social strata. The charm of the Colosseum it is not only due to its immense size, or to have been a place of bloody spectacles, but also because it sports the advanced engineering techniques of ancient Rome.

Roman Forum

Roman Forum to Rome -

The Roman Forum was the social and political center of the Roman Empire. In ancient times, when Rome was Caput Mundi (capital of the world), this valley was the heart of the city. Over the years the forum was gradually enlarged by the various emperors, becoming also a social, commercial and religious center. The most important places to see include the Temple of Vesta, the Temple of Julius Caesar and the Curia Iulia.





Palatine Hill

The Palatine Hill is where according to the legend Romulus founded the Eternal City. The most important places to see include the house of Augustus, the Domus Flavia and the spectacular views offered over the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. It was precisely for this privileged position that the republican aristocracy of Rome chose it as their district and later it was the seat of the imperial palace.
