Overview

One of the world’s most-visited landmarks, the Colosseum is a must during any trip to Rome. On this tour, save hours that otherwise would have been spent waiting in line and head straight to the entrance. With your guide, you’ll explore the Colosseum inside and out, will follow in the footsteps of gladiators, and can even discover areas that are typically off-limits to the public.

What to Expect

You will begin the tour at the meeting place at the office nearby the Colosseum. Here, you can take some beautiful wide angle and panoramic photos of the Colosseum and surrounding areas before the tour begins.  Being one of the most visited monuments in the world, there is a regularly long ticket line at the Colosseum. By joining our Colosseum's Arena tour you will be provided with 'skip the line' entrance tickets, so you group can head straight inside through a special entrance and not waste time standing around in ticket lines.  

As you walk inside the Colosseum, you will begin to feel the magnitude of where you are. This tour gives you access also to the Colosseum arena with a beautiful view over the underground level. Exploring the ground floor level and up to the second tier, your guide will recreate the past, with stories of epic battles, painting pictures in your mind, bringing to life the walls that surround you.

You will learn about the types of games and ferocious battles that the Romans enjoyed.  Along with providing you with expert knowledge, your guide will also point out the best places to capture that perfect picture during your tour, as you tour the circumference of the Colosseum.

Total tour time is approximately 1.5 hours.

Very Informative

We visited the Colosseum and were met by a lovely lady called Simona Matiu. She made the tour. She was very pleasant, amusing and very informative. We were given ear phones to enable us to hear everything she said. It could not have been better.
