This four-hour walking seminar takes us into the archaeological core of the city, focusing on three key monuments: the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. Led by an archaeologist or classical historian, this is the most in-depth of our tours of the Colosseum in Rome and uses the ruins of the ancient city as a backdrop for discussing the rise of the Roman empire, the political intrigues of emperors, and the daily life of commoners. As much more than just a Colosseum tour, this seminar provides some of the basic tools to put ancient Rome into context.
• Led by an archaeologist or classical historian.
• Detailed explanation of ancient Roman politics, society, and empire.
