Wander through the ruins of Ancient Rome in this virtual tour that traverses twelve centuries of Roman history. View the remains of the impressive Roman Forum as you stand atop Capitoline Hill and hear stories of the city that conquered half the known world, before your expert guide leads you along the Via dei Fiori Imperiali, a street built for Mussolini’s grand parades. Learn of the most important figures of antiquity, such as Julius Caesar, Augustus, Trajan and Nero before witnessing the jewel of Ancient Rome, the mighty Colosseum.
This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Rome’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Rome. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Rome of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia.

The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.
The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour. Also, remember to keep an eye on the time difference when choosing a time for your private virtual experience, as all times stated are in Rome time!
