One of the best ways to visit an ancient city is to understand how life is nowadays and how it was long time ago…
The tour starts at the Oppian Hill, one of the famous Seven Hills of Rome. From above, you will see a beautiful view on the Colosseum. Afterwards we will visit the Colosseum and thanks to a skip-the-line ticket we will enter without being stressed by the waiting times.
Let you get stunned by the amazing structure and our guide will explain about the history of the Colosseum and their protagonists the Roman Soldiers.
According to the history it is well known that these soldiers needed to show their self-discipline not only during a battle but during their lives. In fact Augustus, considered as the first Emperor, did not allow soldiers to get married but to follow some sexual habits: having sex with prostitutes of any gender or with male slaves; war rapes and having same-sex relations.
Our guide will tell you the life inside the most famous monument in the world: from the famous fights between gladiators. Then, we will have a little break in the nearby of the Arch of Constantine, erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine’s victory over Maxentius.
From there we reach the Palatine Hill, the most famous of the seven hills of Rome and where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf. We can see the Imperial Fora and the Circus Maximus which was an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium.
Some stories about ancient homosexual personalities like some emperors happened in the past and were part of that hidden history.
Nero was the last Roman Emperor of the dynasty founded by Augustus. Some stories about his sexuality had been left by some writers like Suetonius. These stories relate (“Nero”, 28-9) how Nero used to enjoy sexual relationships with men. He married Sporus and he treated him as a wife. Nero was also related to Doryphorus, assuming the passive role with him.
Then we take a walk along Via Sacra, the main street of ancient Rome, where we will find the Temple of Caesar, the site where he was cremated.
Julius Caesar was a Roman politician and military leader, he was known for having an affair with the king of Bithynia from which he was referred as the “Queen of Bithynia”. Also some tellings say that when he won the battle against the Gauls the soldiers sang “Caesar may have conquered the Gauls, but Nicomedes conquered Caesar” and he was also known as “Every woman’s man and every man’s woman”
We will also see Piazza Venezia and the Pantheon during the tour.
We suggest you to have lunch at the Coming Out, near the Colosseum, in the gay area of Rome.
