Colosseum Arena Floor Tour with Roman Forum
USD 67.65
Enjoy an introduction to Rome’s most significant ancient landmarks on this afternoon tour. Meet your guide outside the Colosseum, where skip-the-line entry will help you beat the crowds and save time. Learn more about the Colosseum's history from your guide, and explore areas of the landmark that are typically off-limits to visitors, including the arena floor. Then, head to the Roman Forum, where you’ll see ruins ranging from the Temple of Julius Caesar to the Senate House, before continuing to the Palatine Hill.
What to Expect
Colosseum Arena Floor Tickets
Avoid the crowds as you walk out onto the coolest restricted area of the Colosseum – the reconstructed Arena Floor. Travel back in time as you trace the footsteps of gladiators. Facing death at the hands of a human or animal opponents, gladiators fought surrounded by 60,000 screaming spectators. Visit the opening to the reconstructed trap door and let your imagination will go wild, as your guide describes the types of wild animals that also once contributed to the Colosseum's popularity and significance in ancient Roman society.

Roman Colosseum Pictures
Get your Cameras ready! The Arena Floor is the best place in the Colosseum for photo opportunities. Our guided tour includes plenty of time to take pictures of you acting like a victorious gladiator to show your family and friends back home. And while you pose, members of the general public will look down at your tour group and wonder “ How did they get there?”. This is because the Arena Floor is not accessible to regular Colosseum ticket holders.

Roman Colosseum History
After the Arena Floor, go on a journey to the Colosseum's first and second levels. See where Emperors sat and learn the rules of the gladiatorial games for both competitors and spectators. Learn why the ancient amphitheater was named the Colosseum and more. After spending a total of 1.5 hours inside of the Colosseum, begin your guided Roman Forum tour.

Guided Roman Forum Tour
The Roman Guy’s Colosseum Arena Floor tour includes Roman Forum tickets and a guided tour of the ancient ruins inside. All our professional guides are trained as both Colosseum and Roman Forum tour guides. This area, also referred to as the "Ancient City", is a Roman archeological site that was once the location of downtown Ancient Rome. Visit some of the most famous Roman Forum buildings, including the Temple of Julius Caesar, Arch of Titus, the Roman Senate House and more. Relive ancient history as you walk down the same roads taken by famous Roman Emperors and philosophers.

Climb Palatine Hill
When your Colosseum Arena Floor with Roman Forum tour concludes, you have free reign to wander around on your own. Climb the Palatine Hill and take in the views over Circus Maximus, relax in the Farnese Gardens, or simply perch on an ancient piece of marble and take in the beautiful surroundings. By the end of the tour, leave the Colosseum and forum with a camera full of incredible pictures of the Colosseum and a mind full of knowledge about ancient Roman life.
