Overview

Join us on this exclusive Rome tour in the Fascinating underground tunnels of the Colosseum and the Arena. Marvel at ancient stage machinery capable of amazing special effects, mechanical elevators centuries ahead of their time, trapdoors and an incredibly complex system of underground tunnels below the arena that made the Colosseum's spectacles possible. With your guide, you will discover who the Gladiators were and how they fought, how the crowds cheered them on and why the games were so popular during the Roman Empire. Walk on the Arena (which in Latin means sand and originally that is what covered the stage) above the Colosseum Underground to experience the drama of the Gladiators. Learn about the plot against Julius Caesar and the temple dedicated to his deification in front of the piazza where Mark Anthony gave his speech against the murderers. Let us guide you to the Palatine Hill to enjoy some breath-taking views of the Eternal City.

Our tour will allow you to tread on the very floor of the arena where the brutal gladiator battles took place, and learn what these violent rituals meant to the ancient Romans. In the Forum you will discover the dark fate that often awaited the Vestal Virgins, encounter the ancient gods in the temple of Saturn and relive dramatic events such as the funeral pyre of Caesar and the beheading of Cicero. Witness the fall of the republic and the rise of an empire in the very spaces where it came to pass over 2,000 years ago, and explore the opulent villas high on the Palatine hill built by extravagant emperors such as Augustus and Nero as symbols of their absolute power.
