Very well organized tour company. And an excellent tour guide Oscar. A definite do not miss historic sight.
Feel the glory and majesty of Rome at the height of its power as you walk on the very same stones as those who came to fight here in gladiatorial combat, treading in their footsteps out onto a partial reconstruction of the arena floor, looking up at the tiered ruins that were once filled with some 50,000-80,000 bloodthirsty spectators.
You are sure to hear their echoes as your eyes are drawn upward, your body turns and your mind is boggled by the elegance and engineering prowess of what was once the largest structure of its kind in the world, all from this unique 360° view, home to the gladiatorial games, exotic staged hunts, theatrical executions and even mock sea-battles.
Enjoy up-close views of the underground area where the spectacle was brought to life, and the panorama from where the Emperor’s box once stood, all special access areas that standard ticket holders don’t get to see.
In addition, gain access to the second floor, tracing the Colosseum’s circumference in an effort to understand what it must have been like when the stands were packed, the crowds were roaring and a gladiator’s destiny hung on their whims.
After the tour, have the option of staying inside the Colosseum to continue your exploration or follow the representative to take advantage of the Skip the Line access to the Roman Forum. Be able to hike to the top of the Palatine Hill for an exceptional bird’s-eye perspective over the Forum and Circus Maximus.
Take advantage of the Skip-the-line entrance tickets service to the Colosseum and Roman Forum. The representative will escort you inside, helping you and exchanging your voucher for an actual ticket. Appreciate, during at least 3 hours, and experience the immensity of ancient Rome’s most iconic symbol at your own pace, enjoying privileged direct access to the Arena Floor through the recently opened ‘Gladiator’s Entrance’ crowding and long security checks that characterize the other entrances. The Tour is extended to a maximum of 25 travelers.
