Rome is all about archeology and walking in the footsteps of the ancients.  There are a number of very reasonable, (well, honestly, CHEAP!) tours you can take in Rome that will put your feet right where the sandals of slaves and senators once trod.

Student Flights, from Sydney, offers an Ancient Rome Archeological Discovery Tour that starts at $103.  The Rome tours include a one-day walking tour, your English speaking guide, and entrance tickets to the Colosseum, the Arch of Constantine and the Roman Forum…and you can even skip the long line!

You can listen to stories of battle and triumph in the Colosseum. You can discover ancient Rome’s political and religious center.  Explore the Roman Forum’s most impressive buildings. Then treat yourself to a glass of wine at a typical Roman wine bar.  Going to Rome alone?  You can find many cheap Rome hotels by searching some of the new online sites that aggregate hundreds of hotels, like Easy to Book.
