Are you busy planning for a superb, luxurious holiday retreat at a far away place? Plan a tour to majestic Rome and the lovely Vatican City. However, don’t miss the majestic Colosseum. This can easily be done by availing Colosseum tour package at Rome. Here are five awesome tips to bear in mind while journeying to this sacred land.

Overview of Colosseum

Originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum is at the center of Italy’s Rome. Till today it represents Imperial Rome and is the iconic symbol. Its construction began in 72 AD and ended in 80AD. With a seating capacity of fifty thousand spectators, it was mainly used for mock sea battles, executions, gladiatorial contests, battle re-enacts and dramas from classical mythology. Colosseum tours are in great demand especially on Good Fridays as the pope leads the procession from here. It is considered to be one among the many great works of Roman engineering and architecture.

Advices on Colosseum Private Tours

Bring along bottles filled with water and a pair of sunglasses to beat the scorching heat. A hat or scarves for protecting your head and face is not a bad idea either. You may use sunscreens with a high SPF count to find some relief from the sizzling temperature. If it rains on your semi-private tour Rome, consider yourself lucky. Watch the water droplets fall precisely through the oculus at the Pantheon to the marble floor and right into the drainage system underground.

Get up close pictures of the striking Roman Forum as well as the legendary Pantheon. Appreciate customized gladiators as well as legionaries at Piazzas and the Via dei Fori Imperiali. During months of peak travel, the Colosseum and the Piazzas are generally crowded. You will do well by taking extra care of your belongings and avoid being the target of thieves. Try not to accept special’ gifts ‘offered by street vendors either. Incase you do so; it is customary to tip or pay a small price for them.

Book Your Tour Today!

Enjoy a gelato at the Spanish Steps as you climb up its elegantly curved spiral staircase. Don’t forget to throw coins at the Trevi Fountain. It is said that if you throw in a coin, you will be blessed with another stopover at Rome; two coins indicate a quixotic intermezzo in the roman city and three coins for a romantic marriage proposal. Opt for semi-private tours at Rome or settle for private ones online right away.
