What to expect

Experience the immensity of ancient Rome’s most iconic symbol on this express Colosseum tour with privileged direct access to the Arena floor through the recently opened Gladiator’s entrance, without the lines, crowding and long security checks.

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. Here, 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.

Home to the gladiatorial games, exotic staged hunts, theatrical executions and even mock sea-battles, this 3-hour Colosseum tour explores the Arena floor with all special access areas that standard ticket holders don’t get to see. In addition, you will follow your guide up to the second level to see what the crowds saw, 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 you will also have the option of staying inside the Colosseum to continue your exploration, or follow your guide to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill for an exceptional bird’s-eye perspective over the Forum and Circus Maximus.
