Have you ever thought that seeing the Colosseum and the Forum is certainly very impressive, but what you’d really like would be to live like an ancient Roman for a day? To be able to experience how these extraordinary people lived their ordinary everyday life… This is exactly what this tour is all about!
Imagine walking down an ancient Roman street lined with shops and overshadowed by the imposing arches of an aquaeduct; entering a Roman house, with the fresco paintings still intact on the walls, walking into the dining room, the kitchen, the courtyard with a splashing fountain…
And then being invited to spend the day with your host, enjoying the chariot races at the Circus Maximus, learning about the 4 different teams and choosing your own favourite one, rooting for the daring charioteers and holding your breath as they drive around the curve at full speed and risk tipping over the chariot and getting shipwrecked.
After all the excitement at the races, let’s relax at the Baths of Caracalla, one of the grandest in town. Every day, 5- to 6000 people would come to this bath to meet their friends, socialize, go to the hairdresser, get a massage, work out in the gym, have a sauna, and enjoy the hot and cold baths. All the time being surrounded by magnificent works of art, colourful mosaics, beautiful gardens and towering architecture.
This tour will take you back in time to the 3th century, when Rome was a bustling city of +1 million inhabitants, and was at the very peak of its power!
