Overview
Skip the line with your professional licensed tour guide on the  Colosseum Express tour, an exciting journey through the heart of Ancient Rome in one hour. Learn about the construction and exterior, before we dive into the details of this magnificent amphitheater, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire, and  bring you the Colosseum to life. 

You will hear stories of these extraordinary events, catch a glimpse of ancient graffiti and enjoy a breathtaking view of the arena floor and underground chambers during this captivating tour.
What to Expect

Perfect for anyone who is short on time, but still wants to experience Ancient Rome's most treasured monument, this tour will bring the majestic Colosseum to life and will leave you feeling like you spent the day there. Roman citizens would come from near and far to witness the spectacular and gruesome sights on offer. Never-before-seen exotic animals would occupy the arena floor before a day of executions and gladiatorial combats would begin. 

Following your tour guides brief introduction from the exterior, filled with fun facts of Roman civilization, you will skip the long ticket lines and enter the Colosseum. Walking through the same arches used by Romans hundreds of years ago, up the same steps, you will feel the history as you walk through its corridors and steps. Imagine along with your tour guides stories what it would have felt like in ancient times.

Loved the Colosseum Tour

Despite the heat that day, the Colosseum was my favourite attraction in Rome. And the reason for that was our tour guide, Mircea. He was not only knowledgeable, but also engaging and entertaining. Instead of delivering the history of the Colosseum in a lecture-like manner...More

If you are looking for a good value, ignore the various 55+ euro offers to skip the line on your way to colosseum. Instead walk all the way to the building and get found by this group ! They made us a very reasonable offer...More

Great tour

We did a morning tour (about 9:30 am) of the Colosseum. We were walk-ins (look for people in the blue vests). The wait was quick, just about 10 minutes, and we had our tour with Lumi. She was great -- very informative, passionate, funny. It...More

Cannot Imagine A Better Tour Anywhere

The best of life happens when things do not go as "planned". My daughter (Morgan) and I thought the best way to enjoy Rome was to wake up early and attack the day, so we set up a very aggressive schedule for ourselves which included...More

Unexpectedly great

I’ve always been wary of the skip-the-line thing, but we went to the “Flavian amphitheater” on a first Sunday of the month which happened to be a free day, do the lines were endless and the weather later in the day would be less friendly-...More

Yes once the tour is over you can stay on your own. If you do the second part of the tour which is included to Palatine Hill you will still have about an hour in between.
