Ancient Rome - The Greatest Empire

Arch of ConstantineWhat was Ancient Rome like? What did the capital of the victorious Roman Republic, and later of the greatest Empire in history look like? Can we see it today? How much of it can we really see? And where? The answer is everywhere and nowhere.

It is everywhere because we can still today see spectacular places like the Colosseum, the very symbol of eternity, Castel Sant'Angelo (Hadrian's Mausoleum), the Pantheon, and others, that are 2000 years old and to this day are proudly outlined in the Roman sky. We can visit the Roman Forum, and see such unbelievable things as the first Roman sewer built in the 6th century BC, and the remains of Roman temples, basilicas, the Senate, and "the navel of the world."Amphiteatrum Flavium

The Ancient City is surprisingly revealed in beautiful and elegant Renaissance and Baroque areas where squares and buildings preserve the hidden shapes of ancient Roman stadiums, theatres, baths. It is also revealed in medieval churches whose walls incorporate those of ancient pagan temples.

We also say that this ancient city is nowhere because today the capital of the great pagan empire built in gleaming white marble is no longer there. It was rebuilt and remodeled in its churches and palaces. Today we can see it only through the eyes of our imagination, and only with the help of a knowledgeable and confident person - your guide.

This tour of Ancient Rome is an exciting journey through History, its interpretation and misinterpretation, legends, stories, and anecdotes. We begin at the Colosseum and the Arch of Constantine, and will walk through the Roman Forum and the Imperial Fori to the Capitol Hill, ending up at the Pantheon, Hadrian's temple dedicated to all the pagan gods. Join us and learn where and how it all began, and why it will never end!
