VISITING THE COLOSSEUM
The arena of death! The Colosseum, a monument so vast and imposing, so awe-inspiring and iconic that it many ways it has come encapsulate the Roman Empire. A building which would take a mere 8 years to construct and with a capacity of over 50,000 would remain the biggest sporting arena in the world until the 20th Century.
The Colosseum may not be as crowded today, but the ticket and security lines can stretch for hours. With our special dedicated guides entrance that takes us straight onto the arena floor, they won’t be an issue for us.
VISITING THE ROMAN FORUM
It may be over 1500 years since the last gladiator fights but this isn’t a problem for The Rogue Historians. We will take you back in time for a day at the games – blood, guts, gore and more.
After the Colosseum, we head to the Roman Forum. A site evoking the names of great leaders and tyrannical despots, the Roman Forum is the backdrop to some of the most illustrious and murderous events in world history.
It was here that Tiberius Gracchus was clubbed to death by the chairs of furious senators. Here that Cicero exposed the Catiline conspiracy with a series of speeches that have been admired and deplored ever since. Here that the great Gaius Julius Caesar was cremated after his pivotal assassination, and here that so many other fateful moments which would go onto shape western history would take place. Most importantly it is here that the Rogue historians will cement your love for Roman history.
