We will start from visiting the Colosseum (skipping the lines) and climbing it upper piers. We will than walk past the Arch of Constantine to the Palatine Hill, once the residence of the ancient rich and powerful.
The views are breathtaking; from the Bath of Caracalla to the Circus Maximus and the Aventine Hill and onto the Roman Forum under our feet. We will stop at the Arch of Titus than descent onto the Roman Forum with the ruins of its ancient temples, the Senate House and the Rostra, from where most important speeches were given.
Upon leaving the Forum we will call at the Mamertinum Prison where St Peter and St.Paul spent their last days.
A short climb will take us to the Capitol Hill, the most famous of the Roman hills. The Rome Town Hall designed by Michelangello is the seat of Romes major today. We will walk down the hill by the Tarpean Rock where the traitors of the Empire had been executed and reach the Theatre of Marcellus and the area of Jewish Ghetto.
The views as we walk down are unique. With the domes of hundreds of churches at your feet you will understand why Rome is called the city of thousand churches and one synagogue
