Discovering Ancient Rome

Rome is a city with over 2,000 years of history. Understanding this city can prove difficult, above all for first-time visitors.

This tour, therefore, was designed to include the city’s most striking features, slowly immersing visitors in Roman culture through the analysis and study of the city’s principal architectural elements. In fact, we will begin our tour in the ancient center of the city, where Romulus and Remus founded Rome. We will then focus immediately on the Colosseum, the city’s most emblematic feature, analyzing its daily operation as well as the social motives of its construction.

Continuing our discussion on the daily life of Romans, we will make our way to the Ludus Magnus, the gym in which gladiators warmed up before combat. They would reach the Colosseum via a long subterranean tunnel that led directly to the arena.

Our next stop will be the Roman Forum, which we will reach after walking along the Via dei Fori Imperiali. We will explore the forum of Nerva and Augustus until we reach Trajan’s Column, still perfectly preserved in the place where the emperor Trajan ordered it built.

We cannot miss, of course, giving a last look at Trajan’s Market. Although we will not enter the complex, it will still provide material for a discussion that will enrich our understanding of this curious and unique place in which the ancient past meets the present.
