Rome is a historical layer cake and Italy with Us is offering you a scrumptious piece. The Roman Forum and Colosseum tour lets you see the Eternal City sliced open. Each tier reveals ... morea city built atop and recycling the ruins of earlier cities.
Dig in on Via del Colosseo, the narrow street that leads to the Colosseum. Your guide, aka Indiana Jones, will show you evidence – a temple’s ancient column here, a Roman-era wall there. You’ll look down on the Colosseum from what seems like a hill. Wrong. Under your feet are Renaissance Rome, medieval Rome, ancient Rome.

Descend to the Colosseum, the city’s level in 80 AD when the world’s largest amphitheatre was inaugurated. This remarkable structure stands tall after 2000 years, whereas most modern stadiums last a few decades. Discover the arches built without mortar, remnants of flushing toilets and evidence of the retractable roof. Only in person can you appreciate this monument to engineering, architecture – and power – since slaves did the back-breaking work.

As you gaze at the arena, your guide will bring to life the spectators’ experience, from the senators in the VIP section to the women in the nosebleed seats. The free entertainment came with a price: your vote for the generous emperor. After all, this is the birthplace of “bread and circuses”. Later, on the arena stage, feel the rush that gladiators felt. Rising from the underground backstage via lifts, they popped onto the stage from trap doors to the deafening chants of up to 70,000 people.

The Roman Forum is your next destination. Walk along Via Sacra, the main road taken by victorious Roman soldiers returning home from conquests. You too will pass triumphal arches, including the Arch of Titus commemorating Vespasian’s and later Titus’ victories over Judea. The story (one-sided, of course) comes to life in intricate carvings depicting Victoria, the goddess of victory, next to Titus and soldiers bearing a menorah and other sacred war spoils.

You’ll be astonished by the fourth-century AD Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine. What remains of this enormous public building are soaring concrete vaults, remarkable for their ability to support weight. More than a century after it was built, Michelangelo and Bramante studied the building while designing St. Peter’s Basilica. Equally impressive are the Temple of Romulus with its bronze door and precious porphyry stone columns and the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina. Both were converted into churches, protecting them from medieval looters who, you’ll see, nevertheless tried to abscond with materials.

Check out the brick-faced, first-century BC Senate House, repeatedly rebuilt over the years. Shakespeare might claim that Caesar was murdered here, but the Bard is wrong. Learn where Caesar met his maker and then pay your respects at the altar where he was cremated. Scholars have doubts that this is the original altar but that hasn’t stopped visitors from leaving fresh flowers every day. Hail, Caesar!

About your tour “Welcome to the Vatican!”, says the Italy with Us guide, stepping inside the massive, ninth-century walls that protect the world’s smallest country. ... more“We aren’t in Italy anymore”. No passport required, just a desire to be enthralled by art, archaeological finds and religious objects spanning two millennia.
Italy with Us’ daytime tour transports you into this artistic and spiritual paradise. The Vatican Museums, located in the popes’ former living and working quarters, allow you to enter in His Holiness’ kingdom, even if you aren’t wearing red shoes. To fully enjoy this labyrinth of interconnected rooms, a seasoned, official Vatican guide is necessary. Italy with Us’ guides are experts not only in art history but also in avoiding the crowds that justifiably flock to this bucket-list destination.

From the mosaic-covered floors that look like paintings to the painted ceilings that appear to be bas relief, the Vatican Museums are jam-packed with priceless art collected by the popes. Marvel at a rare gilded bronze statue of Hercules dating from the first century. Admire the Raphael-designed tapestries depicting Christ’s life (and some mind-blowing optical illusions). In the stately Gallery of Maps, your guide will take you on a journey through Italy. Forty glorious blue and green maps frescoed on the walls in the late 16th century astound with their beauty and seriously pre-GPS accuracy.

Just when the crowds are becoming too much, your guide will lead you into some rooms that are off-limits to the general public. The Hall of Animals offers almost a Noah’s Ark-sized collection of animals sculpted in marble, bronze and alabaster.

Just like you, Michelangelo walked these halls some 500 years ago to gain inspiration. You’ll gaze upon his marble models for the Sistine Chapel – the Belvedere Apollo, the muscular Laocoön and a stark, perfectly proportional torso, all around 2000 years old. The stunning culmination of your visit will be the Sistine Chapel.

“The truths of our faith speak to us here from all sides”, Pope John Paul II said about the chapel. Your guide will have opened your ears – and eyes – to its artistic icons. See the work of a dream team of Renaissance artists who depicted the lives of Moses and Christ on the side walls. Even more remarkable is Michelangelo’s ceiling. Tilt your head upward, just as the artist did when painting the ceiling, and you’ll be amazed by these legendary scenes from the book of Genesis, which resonate far more in person. Ponder Michelangelo’s encore, the monumental Last Judgement. Those destined for heaven and hell swirl around Christ in the moment before he declares their fate. At least you’ll have seen the paradise that is the Vatican.
