This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Rome, Lazio
Begin your tour of Rome's most iconic monument with skip-the-line access directly through the Gladiator's Gate. This special entrance leads you directly to the parts of the Colosseum most tourists don't get to see.

Your first stop is the Colosseum Underground backstage area where gladiators prepared for battle. Here, your expert English-speaking guide will call on their historical and archaeological expertise to let you imagine the space as it once was. 

Then, walk in the gladiator's footsteps on a partially reconstructed arena stage that comes with a unique and amazing photo opportunity. Also ascend from the Arena Floor to the Colosseum's second tier, where fans cheered for the violent spectacles below.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Palatine hill, Rome, Lazio
The next stop on this tour is a ride through the rich Roman history. The Palatine hill is the spot where Romulus chose to institute the city that would become Rome in 753 BC. Here, steeped in history, you'll enjoy spectacular views overlooking your next destination: the Roman forum.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Roman forum, Rome, Lazio
The Forum and the Via sacra, the Sacred Way, is where resides the heart of ancient Rome. All of Roman life could be found in this bustling marketplace: commerce and trade, political rallies, military parades, and the sacred ceremonies of the Vestal Virgins.

    Tour guide was wonderful,
    Be advised it is a lot of area to cover in 3.5 hours so you will be moving quickly. But guide was great!

    The Palatine Hill is for the less able as you have to climb lots of steps and there is no lift.If you love history this is a well worth seeing tour as well as The Forum and The Colosseum.

    It was an amazing structure and so glad they we took the tour. There was a little confusion on what we were suppose to see and the tour guide for the colosseum and your guide had words and we had a slight delay in the middle of the process. The colosseum guide was wonderful. I did feel that your guide showed a lot of pictures on the iPad which resulted with a lot of still time that could have been avoided. But all in all it was a nice tour.

    This was a fantastic tour well worth it. Excellent guides. The ability to go right to the top of the Colosseum was amazing, though exhausting.

    There is a lot of work being done on the Colosseum so the underground tour was not as extensive as I had hoped but that is a minor issue.

    There was a bit of waiting around and fiddly issues of changing over the receivers for the earphones when at the Colosseum but again, a minor issue.

    I would absolutely recommend this tour. The guides are extremely knowledgeable.

    Be prepared for lots and lots of walking. Take a water bottle and aome snacks as you will not get a chance to stop and get these.

    Great tour of the colosseum and forum. Got to see parts of the colosseum usually off limits to the public. This tour is not suitable for those with mobility issues or real young kids. My daughter is 5.

    Phenomenal!!! Touring these sites this way is definitely worth the $$. Shout out for our tour guide, Vasco! Very knowledgeable, friendly, English easy to understand.

    Our tour guide and historian expert in the coliseum was fabulous. She was able to clearly explain the history of the Colosseo and the historical findings of the archeologists which have helped to better understand this period of history.

    Livia was very knowledgeable and generous with answering all of our questions. The tour guide inside the Colosseum was also very knowledgeable. We were in areas that were not overrun with others. Thanks!
