Know More about this tour

Visit the Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, at night for a special and unforgettable tour. Take the most complete walking tour of the Colosseum, which includes the arena floor and the underground level.

Meet your tour guide at the meeting point not far from the entrance. Enjoy the sunset colors of Rome and get ready for your night tour. Reach the entrance of the Colosseum with the others on your small group and go through the privileged entry point with no line.

Your friendly and professional tour guide will lead you through hidden paths in the arena and the underground levels that allows you to descend into the hypogeum.

Built to host Roman citizens during spectacles, gladiator battles, and performances, the amphitheater was one of the largest in the world for centuries. The Colosseum's huge crowd capacity made it essential that the venue could be filled or evacuated quickly. Its architects adopted solutions very similar to those used in modern stadiums to deal with the same problem. Spectators were seated in a tiered arrangement that reflected the rigidly stratified nature of Roman society.

Little now remains of the original arena floor, which in ancient times consisted of a wooden floor covered by sand. The sand was necessary to absorb the blood spilled by wounded animals and gladiators during the shows. 

The hypogeum was connected by underground tunnels to a number of points outside the Colosseum. Animals and performers were brought from nearby stables through the tunnels, with the gladiators' barracks at the Ludus Magnus to the east also being connected by tunnels.

You will be amazed by learning about all this organization while strolling into same tunnels and levels that gladiators, senators, and common people once used.

  • Unfortunately, this tour was missed due to an unexpected trip to the ER, and we were so looking forward to this tour.

  • Really enjoyed the experience...for me a definite do.....I enjoyed it much better than day time visit...best advice , book early with colosseum website,

  • Not clear in the information that the tour is made up of 1 hr walk around Rome before entering Colosseum. Didn't enter until 10:30pm. Once inside, excellent but the first section might be best avoided.
