The Parco archeologico del Colosseo has added two walking paths for visitors to follow in complete autonomy, all included in the price of an admission ticket.
Visitors can also explore both paths with the help of an expert tour guide; while one meanders mainly through the valley of the Forum, the other makes its way along the southern slopes of the Palatine.
What great panorama lay before the great travelers of the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries once they’d arrived at the Arch of Titus, the Campo Vaccino or the Colosseum? Visitors can find the answer to this question following the various points of interest spread throughout the area, each of which is marked by a special panel that suggests the “views” enjoyed by travelers on the “Grand Tour”.
For a journey through time and space, visitors can take the path that travels from the Severan Arcades to the Huts of Romulus, where the city was founded, and then on to the Forum at the Horrea Agrippiana. An archeo-historical itinerary but also a botanical one where blossoming flowers and herbs, sturdy shrubs and stands of trees provide a one-of-a-kind backdrop with their bouquet of colors and fragrances.
