We tread in the footsteps of gladiators, slaves, merchants and royalty, crossing the Tiber River into Imperial Rome to visit the ancient Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre in the Roman Empire. Imagine crowds of enthusiastic onlookers cheering their chariot racers to victory at the Circus Maximus before the rest of the afternoon spent at leisure discovering more of the city or relaxing at a pavement café and watching the frenetic pace of Rome.Buffet Breakfast
