Know More about this tour

Step off the tourist track in the Colosseum and get a gladiators-eye-view by using their special entrance and stepping onto the normally off-limits arena floor. You cant get closer to the action than this.

The arena floor is where people actually fought and died in the Colosseum. While most visitors only ever see it from the stands, youll bypass long, general entrance lines and step directly onto it via the special Gladiators Gate. As you marvel at the great amphitheater around you, your expert guide will tell stories to transport back nearly 2,000 years, when vicious blood sports were the most popular form of entertainment in Rome.

During your tour youll also explore the rest of the Colosseum, including the first floor and Roman Forum overlook. Then youll head into the Roman Forum and the Palatine hill to learn the the wider history of Imperial Rome. Through the stories and anecdotes of your expert guide, the ruins will come to life and youll have no problem imagining the heyday of this incredible civilization.

  • Absolutely exceptional tour! We've been fortunate to travel to may places in the world, and have used many private/public guides, and this was by far one of the best! Our guide was knowledgeable trained archaeologist, extremely enthusiastic about sharing what he knew what a difference this makes!, and very very personable. Couldn't have asked for a better tour guide!

    Tour is also extensive - you don't just cover the actual Colosseum, but also many of the structures surrounding it.


  • Excellent tour......highly recommend.

  • Overall very nice tour. The tour guide was entertaining and gave us some valuable information. If you are going to see the Colosseum in Rome I advise you to take a tour. We took the 3 hour tour that gave a good overview of both the Colosseum and the Palatine Palace. After the interesting tour we were ready for shopping. Overall I would take the tour guide again.
