Colosseum and Imperial Forum accessible tour: the story of Gladiators and Emperors...
The Accessible tour of Rome – Colosseum and Imperial Forum accessible Tour focuses on the most important places in ancient Rome: The Colosseum, the Forum, the Arch of Titus, The Arch of Constantine, and the Palatine Hill. This accessible tour is designed to accommodate wheelchair users and showcase the history and grandeur that the remains of the Ancient Roman Empire have to offer.
This accessible tour into ancient times begins with the largest amphitheater in the world: The Colosseum, also known by the name of Flavian Amphitheater. It was completed in 80 A.D. under Emperor Titus, and here up to 80,000 people at a time would meet to see gladiatorial fights and wild animals from all over the Roman Empire. It was also a place for public executions. The Colosseum was equipped with movable special effects and trees, which provided a dynamic set for the different shows, and created the right atmosphere to reenact historical battles fought by the Roman Empire around the known world. According to an ancient prophecy, so long as the Colosseum stands Rome will continue to be.
After the visit to the Colosseum, this accessible tour will take you to visit the “ancient Roman Forum”. Originally a marketplace, this square housed government buildings and temples, and it was the beating heart of Rome’s daily life. It was a crucial meeting place, and it had many beautiful statues and monuments as well as important government offices, tribunals, and memorials. The Accessible Rome – Colosseum and Imperial Forum Tour will also include the “arch of Titus” in the “Via Sacra”, just South-East of the Roman Forum, which commemorates Emperor Titus’s victory over Jerusalem in 72 A.D. The tour also leads to the “Arch of Constantine”, which commemorates the victory of Emperor Constantine in the battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312. “The Arch of Constantine” was dedicated to the Emperor by the senate to celebrate ten years of Emperor Constantine’s reign, a so-called “decennalia”.
The Accessible Rome – Colosseum and Imperial Forum tour will also take you to visit the “Imperial Palaces”. This area is situated on the top of the “Palatine Hill”, one of the historical seven hills upon which it is said that Romulus founded the city. This place is now one great open-air museum where you will be able to see the ruins of the palaces of emperors Augustus, Domitian, and Tiberius. There are also numerous temples of Ancient Rome’s pagan gods, as well as the houses of the richest roman citizens of the time.
