Usually the history tell us about heroic deeds of principal characters of Rome, but Rome was not only this. the first metropolis in human history was formed by a very large number of people that had several roles, all of them really important for Rome’s destiny. How did these people live? What did they eat? How did they enjoy themselves? How did they dress? Which odours could be felt in the streets of Rome?
Exclusively for their guest, Campo Marzio Luxury Suites has thought up an astonishing itinerary to re-experience an authentic day of a common citizen in ancient Rome, retracing the areas where they lived and spent their daily activities: Forums, Basilicas and Markets, Thermal baths, theaters and amphitheaters. The route will start from the Roman Forum, the almost trapezoidal square born at the intersection of important ancient roads (Via Sacra, Vicus Tuscus, Vicus Iugarius, Clivus Argiletum) that which was originally marshy area and intended for burials (X century BC) gradually became the commercial, political and administrative center of the Eternal City.
You could admire some of the oldest temples of the city (the first of which date back to the age of kings), studying different aspects of the Roman religion; you could visit the remains of the basilicas (Basilica Aemilia and Basilica Iulia), the buildings of rectangular shape for the conduct of process and commercial affairs in general; you will see the Curia, the place where the senators, the “fathers” of the Res Publica Romanorum, came together and decided the fate of the City; and lastly, numerous honorary monuments built in this area starting from the imperial age (the last of these, is the column dedicated to the emperor of the East Phocas in 608 AD). The guided tour will take you then on the Palatine Hill, the place where the divine twins, sons of Rhea Silvia, were found and suckled by the famous She-wolf. One of them, Romulus, founded the city of Rome, becoming the first king. The hill, the most important of those in the city, was then chosen by the emperors as a place to build their magnificent mansions: you will visit the ruins of the palaces of Augustus, Tiberius and Domitian and you will discover the features and the splendor of the environments in which the Roman Emperors, the most powerful men in the ancient world, spent their everyday life.Coming down from the Palatine, you will be introduced in the Circus Maximus, the largest and oldest place for sports competitions in Rome, the most famous of which were chariot races.
Exceptionally large (621 meters in length and 118 in width), was able to accommodate 250,000 spectators. We’ll try to make you enjoy the typical atmosphere of a spectator of the past who for his needs could also rely on a variety of small shops, stalls and taverns in the surrounding area.
The visit will end then in the “Flavian Amphitheatre”, better known as the Colosseum, the monument that was built by Vespasian (69-79 d.C.), was inaugurated by his son Titus in 80 AD. After a brief description of its appearance, you can also enter directly inside the arena to see with your eyes the place where deadly clashes between gladiators and the venationes (clashes between men and beasts exotic), discovering the greatest form of entertainment of the Roman world.
