Why take this virtual tour class?

Rome is surely one of the most ancient city in the world.
It was founded in the year 753 BC.
And yet, back then,  its citizens had already a very detailed and organized system of laws, commerce, religion and military life.
We can still see the evidence of this in the so called Roman Forum, an area where there are the remains of the structures where their daily life happened.
Around a squared area, where they would buy and sell merchandise, there are temples dedicated to their pagan gods, the buildings where the administration of the justice was held, and especially the Curia or Senate where the political decisions were taken.
This area was used especially during the Republic period, before the set up of the Roman empire: THE ROMAN FORUM. 
The Forum was also the market and a social place where the Romans used to meet.
Here we will admire the temple where Julius Caesar body was cremated after he was murdered.
At that point the Romans set up the Empire.
The first emperor built his house upon the hill where first the city was founded: THE PALATINE HILL.
Augustus started a building that will be eventually expanded by his successors, covering completely the hill with an imposing structure that will get later on the name of: PALATINE HILL.
Please follow us in this incredible journey back in time through the beauty of the palace that once belonged to the Caesars.

Meet our guide

Maria Laura Giorgi was born in Rome on November 22nd 1971.
Her parents, both Italian but who had lived in Australia for 8 years before going back to Italy, decided to send her to an English school in Rome rather than to an Italian one at the age of 4. She therefore considers English her childhood language.
Having loved to learn a foreign language she learned French and Spanish as well in her high school. Eventually she studied English and Anglo American literature at University and graduated in Shakespearean criticism. At the age of 23 she by chance started working in tourism as a tour manager, and finding out how much she loved that turmoil life that is travelling with groups, she continued doing that for 18 years.
In 2010 she took her guiding license for the city of Rome and its surroundings, after a 4 years period of intense studying to learn as much as possible about the Eternal city.
She has been working as a tour guide since 2010 mostly with Americans.
She is a great traveler and she has travelled through the United States several times, and recalling as the most fun place she has been is San Antonio, Texas.
Her favorite place to guide in Rome is the breathtaking Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo at the Vatican but also the history of all the noble families of the Renaissance is something that she absolutely prefers.

Virtual tour: Colosseum and the Gladiators

This virtual tour, arranged by Luca Orlando and presented by Giulietta Seme delved into many aspects of the beautiful Colosseum in Rome. She presented us with many very fascinating historical facts including architecture, building materials, seating, and a look into the inner spaces where wild animals were kept. We met some of the ancient gladiators and saw the weapons and armors that they used. We also learned about some of the rulers who lived during the days of the gladiators.
