Your LivTours Colosseum VR Tour begins at the iconic Colosseum.

After an introduction to the history of this ancient venue, you will be gifted with cardboard VR glasses. Simply slip your phone in the case and enjoy LivTours exclusive 360-degree virtual reality reconstructions of the Colosseum and the surrounding hills. Your expert guide will help you get a closer look atwhat gladiatorial fights were like in this very arena thousands of years ago.

Climb to the second ring and enjoy the view from Caesar’s balcony, hear amazing stories and anecdotes, and get a better picture of just what it all looked like thousands of years ago by viewing it from your VR glasses.

After concluding your visit to the Colosseum, your semi-private group tour will move on to another magnificent archaeological site – the nearby Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Learn about the origins of Rome and the strategy that helped this ancient power grow. Climbing to the very top of this beautiful archeological park you will be able to admire one of the most stunning views to Circus Maximus. Currently, you will only see a lovely grass field, but slip your glasses on once again and you will be able to see what it looked like when Emperor Nero held chariot races. While listening to your guides’ stories about ancient Rome, you will gain a new appreciation for just how advanced they were and how epic this panoramic view must have been at the time.  

Next, it is on to visit the political and commercial center of ancient Rome – the Roman Forum. The sheer size of the excavation site and the remarkably intact ruins of basilicas, political buildings, temples and more and will stimulate your imagination of the Roman life of the ancient past. Your guide will delight you with stories of emperors and the over-the-top lifestyles of ancient Rome’s rich and famous. One of the greatest wonders of Rome, this open-air archeological site is brought to life on this guided semi-private tour. 

Imagine the vibrant debates of toga-clad Roman senators in the Curia, and the discussions that may have taken place during the cremation of Julius Caesar right in that very spot. Allow your expert guide to painting a picture of the colorful victory parades of Roman soldiers as they passed through the magnificent arches after conquests. Have one more look through your glasses and and see what it all looked like 2000 years ago. The glasses are yours to take home, so you can enjoy the simulations even from the comfort of your home long after your vacation has ended.

  • The above itinerary is an example, the order of the sites might change depending on the scheduled slot.
  • Guests with wheelchair accessibility needs will find difficulty with this semi-private tour. In order to ensure a tour with alternative routes, please inquire with our customer support team and we will find you a barrier-free tour.
  • Due to these unprecedented times and ongoing safety and regulation changes, some sites may have limited accessibility if the venue can not guarantee social distancing which may lead to unforeseen tour modifications. Thank you for your understanding.
  • LivTours’ group size of max 6 participants is and always has been based on sustainable travel and especially in these new times, we are proud to be at the forefront of the innovation, changes, and challenges that are presented to us during this post-pandemic time.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

Really liked the VR addition

"This is an AMAZING tour! We LOVED the VR glasses! They really helped us see what it was like in ancient times and we could compare with how it is today! Really fascinating! And our kids had a ball!!"

Benjamin - UK

Great small group tour with VR

"This is a super tour!! We loved the VR glasses and the extra understanding that they gave us as to how things were (and how they are now). The Forum made more sense thanks to our guide -- otherwise, it's alot of stones and columns that are hard to imagine."

Larry - USA

Will definitely book again

"We had a great experience with LivItaly Tours. Even though the day was cold and raining, our tour guide, Marco, made the experience very enjoyable. Marco was professional and knowledgeable of ancient and present day Rome. We are already planning a trip back to Rome and I'll definitely choose LivItaly Tours again! Thank you Marco!"
