The gladiators of Ancient Rome

“Ave Caesar, morituri te salutant.”

Following in the footprints of the greatest fighters in ancient history, we will see the most important monuments of imperial Rome. We will begin, naturally, with a visit inside the monument symbolic of Rome, the Colosseum, a Flavian amphitheatre where gladiators fought daily for their survival. From here we will pass through the Circus Maximus, the mythological site of the Rape of the Sabine Women, used for horse races. Our next stop will be the Baths of Caracalla – the largest bath complex of ancient Rome, commonly frequently by emperors and patricians – followed by a visit to the Theatre of Marcellus. The tour will end with a visit to Piazza Navona, which rises on top of the ancient stadium of Domitian.
