Summary

We begin by seeing four eras of Rome's 2,000-year-old history all in one view. We ascend the Capitoline Hill with Michelangelo's harmonious Piazza; explore the prison where legend says St. Peter and Paul were held captive; walk through the Ancient Roman Forum, with the Roman Senate House, the House of the Vestal Virgins, and the Arch of Titus; and then on to the incredible Coliseum. See where gladiators fought and died. Learn how the ancient technology of pulleys and elevators and winches made for spectacular spectacles. We'll also:

Walk where victorious Roman Emperors celebrated their triumphs
See how 55,000 spectators filled the Coliseum in just a few minutes
Mark the spot where Marc Antony delivered the eulogy for Julius Caesar
Look at an ancient Roman apartment house
See a Renaissance gem designed by Michelangelo
Learn how lions and tigers sprang from under the floor of the Coliseum
Stand at the spot where Vestal Virgins were buried alive for breaking their vows
