Take time out from Florence to visit Rome, where Imperial-era grandeur and gripping gladiator tales await. After traveling to the capital by high-speed train, make the most of a free morning to explore before an afternoon walking tour of Ancient Rome. Use a skip-the-line ticket to bypass the entrance lines at the Colosseum, and tour the amphitheater's first and second tiers. Later, enjoy a skip-the-line tour of the Roman Forum — home to a bounty of the city’s ancient ruins — and then return to Florence by train in the evening.
