Know More about this tour

Start your tour near Oppian Hill – one of the famous Seven Hills of Rome -- to enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum, and then stroll down to it with your guide. As Rome’s premier crowd-drawing site, the Colosseum regularly attracts long entrance lines. Skip them with your priority-access ticket and head straight inside for your small-group tour.

As you walk around the Colosseum’s first and second tiers, your guide will keep you entertained with tales of gladiators, mock sea-battles and executions -- a fascinating insight into the amphitheater's gruesome past. Wander its circumference and learn what it must have been like when the crowds were roaring and the gladiator’s fate was decided by an emperor on a whim.

After exploring the Colosseum, head outside and walk the short distance to the Roman Forum for an up-close look at some of Ancient Rome’s most evocative ruins. See sites like the Temple of Julius Caesar and the intriguing House of the Vestal Virgins, before strolling up Palatine Hill to admire the views of the ruins below. Look down over Nero’s Circus Maximus, where chariot races were once held, and then finish your tour on the Palatine Hill – the most famous of the Seven Hills of Rome.

Upgrade Options:
If you want to explore the Colosseum, and enjoy access to the arena floor, the underground chambers and the third tier, then upgrade! These areas are either newly opened or normally off limits, so by upgrading you’ll experience the Colosseum as few others do. The Upgrade option last 3.5hours.

Walk around the reconstructed arena floor, where the gladiators once fought, and peer down in to the underground chambers below. Then, head below ground to explore them yourself, seeing the pits where lions and tigers were once caged. Your Colosseum experience finishes with a stroll around the third tier where you can enjoy panoramic views into the Colosseum as well as out onto Palatine Hill.

  • Fantastic tour! Our guide was an archeologist and was so knowledgeable! Our teenage children were with us and enjoyed every minute of the tour. A must do!!! TIP- Make sure you take a hat and water bottle as the forum has very little shade.

  • We landed at 11 a.m. on Saturday and were on the tour at 3 p.m. Extremely memorable...highly knowledgeable tour guide!

  • Great tour. Our specific guide was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. A guided tour is an absolute must for these ruins.

  • Fabio was good. It enjoyed my tour.

  • A great tour. City wonders Tours do a fabulous job. The tour guides are friendly, knowledgable, and very professional. Skip the line tours are the only way to go. Highly recommended and well worth the money.

  • Our guide was great ! We had a fairly large group 26 and she made sure we were all with her.

  • This was a great excursion and thanks so much for helping to make it memorable for all in our party.

  • Knowledgeable guide and brings the experience to life. The best way to experience this site!

  • This is a 3.5-hour walking tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Thanks to our guide Paolo, it was a rich and informative tour, but 3.5 hours is a long time. Id be lying if I told you we didnt zone out from time to time

    Still, it was absolutely worth it. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable, and there was plenty of opportunity to snap many photos of ruined buildings, columns, and statues.

    Im absolutely delighted we took this tour.
