Overview
The Colosseum is one of the busiest sights in Rome so instead of spending hours in line you’ll go straight to the front of the entrance line with this skip-the-line tour leaving you more time to explore the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Follow in the footsteps of gladiators as your guide takes you deep into into the dungeons of the Colosseum and then out onto the Arena floor in this official Colosseum Underground Tour.
What to Expect
Meet your English speaking guide at the tour office in Via del Colosseo, 24. Here you'll enjoy panoramic views of some of the most well-preserved parts of the Colosseum and have plenty of time to take photographs while waiting for your tour to start.  

You'll learn how the Roman’s built such a colossal monument while skipping the long lines to step inside the largest amphitheater ever built. Your guide will recount stories of epic battles between gladiators and wild beasts while giving you behind the scenes access to Colloseum sights.

This tour offers exclusive access to the underground areas where you'll explore the tunnels and rooms where gladiators prepared for battle before stepping out onto the arena floor where the mighty gladiators once stood.

Underground tours of Rome’s Colloseum are among the most popular tours in Rome and often fill up, so book early to avoid disappointment.

We learned so much about Rome and the Colosseum

We liked this tour and I think we actually got upgraded. Seeing the lower levels of the Colosseum was fascinating. We saw every floor and the guide gave us quite a bit of detail. After a break we continued the tour with a walk around...More

Terrible experience - read the bad reviews and avoid

As other reviewers have said, this tour is falsely advertised and a tourist trap. We signed up for the 3:30 tour and arrived 45 minutes early, as the instructions for the tour state on TripAdvisor. However, we were told that those instructions don't mean anything,...More

We apologise for you experience, but there are some issues that must be cleared up with this review. It is not true that the instructions do not mean anything, what is true is that we have sent a message to all clients that the Colosseum...More

Total Tourist Trap - Avoid - Not worth the Money

Having been to Rome numerous times before, as well as to the Colosseum, we thought we would try something different and signed up for the underground tour. It was a MISTAKE. The cost of tour was absolutely a total waste of money. While the tour...More

We have various issues with this review, if you had been to Rome various times we have noticed that you have reviewed two very similar tours of the Colosseum on the same day with different companies, meaning that you would have had to take 2...More

Colosseum Tour

The tour itself is fantastic. Going into the lower level was amazing. To see how the Colosseum was built, how they moved animals and people was incredible. How they constructed this building is amazing. The reason I rated the tour low was the experience of...More

Our apologies about your early arrival but we have sent a message to all clients that the Colosseum had changed the reservation time. This must be done through the booking company's portal as we do not have direct access to clients e-mail addresses. The e-mails...More

Not recommended. Look elsewhere or you will be ripped off

This tour was a bit of a shambles and myself and my partner were hugely disappointed. Firstly, despite an initial booking of 3.30pm, it didn’t start until 16.45. Instead of it lasting 2 hours, it was rushed and lasted 55 minutes. The Roman Forum and...More

The tour we booked was just for the Colosseum. We have been on that included the other sights. Lots of options to choose from Idelaig.

Hi Jennifer, the additional tour was free and even offered before the Colosseum tour started (we did not ask for it). By the way, the reponse to my review (from the tour company), is completly untrue. We never went back to... More
