For decades, gladiators fought on the centre stage both among themselves and against ferocious beasts, giving life to some of the bloodiest shows in history.
The visit will continue, through the center and the heart of Rome’s ancient life: the Roman Forum. Admiring the ruins of public, religious and political buildings of the Roman Empire will make you enjoy that same vibrant energy experienced in this area more than two thousand years ago.
You will be able to admire the well-preserved Curia of the Senate, where senators held in their hands the destiny of Rome with their own votes. The entrance to the Forum is totally accessible and there are suitable toilets along the way.
