Know More about this tour

Meet your guide outside the Colosseum at your selected departure time to begin your walking tour. Discover the site that over the centuries has become the symbol of the city. Learn about the Colosseum's rich history of gladiators, slaves, and ferocious animals. Hear, too, of its cruelty, and discipline, in addition to its clemency. For approximately 2 hours, explore all the areas of the Colosseum, starting with off-limits areas. First, see the underground chambers where animals were caged, then see the secret passages of the Gladiators, then marvel at the how animals were transported to the Arena's main level. Next, proceed to the Third Level of the Colosseum, the highest point that provides a wonderful lookout.

After your visit the Colosseum, explore the heart of the ancient city for about one hour. Walk among temples, meeting places, and triumphal arches. Discover the Forum: the area that witnessed the birth and development of the Roman civilization, and the political, social, religious, and economic heart of the Roman Republic. Some of the most ancient places of worship can be found in the Forum, and visitors can still glimpse the remains of temples.

  • This combined tour was fantastic. Our main guide was one of the best that I've ever had. The archaeologist who did the underground portion paled in comparison but that was mainly because our overall tour guide was so good. I highly recommend this small group tour. You get to see areas of the Colosseum that I have never seen before. Our guide kept us out of the heat and the visuals on the ipad were very useful.

  • Guide was excellent and access was superb!

  • Must DO...Fascinating....and kudos to our guide Mido who was amazing!!!!!

  • great guides with good historic knowledge. the underground and third tier access well worth the money.

  • Excellent guide - very knowledgable and perfectly timed. Definitely recommend.

  • Booking the tour and finding the guide on the day was easy. We were very impressed with the amount of knowledge and passion our guide/s had for Ancient Rome and the Colosseum. The explanations and descriptions of how the sites were and what they were used for made it easy to imagine how it had been. We were a small group of 10 with 2 of the group children, early teens. The guides made sure to include everyone.Thoroughly recommend this tour.

  • Incredible 3 hour journey from the Forum to the Colosseum . We had an intimate group of 8 and our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. He spoke very English very well and kept us interested throughout the entire trip. It was very busy but we didn't have to wait on any lines. We had access to all the restricted areas. The views from the top of the Colesseum were breath taking. Being in the basement, seeing where the animals and the gladiators were held, just amazing. It was like going back in time. I would totally recommend it.

  • We are a family of 4, with 2 teenagers, and found this tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum absolutely amazing. Manuela was our Guide and was so knowledgeable about the sites that she held our attention and brought it all alive. The hardest part of the tour was finding Manuela outside the Train Station as it was very busy, but once we found her, our movement through the sites was very efficient. We joined with another family of 4, with younger children, and the personalised service we received was very worthwhile. We did Pallatine Hill first and our birdseye view of the Forum made for an interesting intro to the site. Manuela also used a Rome book which included overlay pictures of what places used to look like and this was very helpful and particularly appealed to the kids. She had a lovely manner about her and was happy to answer questions. She handed us over to the Colosseum Guide, Marina, who was keen and enthusiatic, though she did tend to repeat herself a lot. It was wonderful to go underground to the area where slaves worked with the animals and then access the 3rd tier to get a great view overlooking the Colosseum. This is a must do! We skipped all queues and utilised our time well. We probably spent 4hrs going around, rather than 3, so considered the extra money spent on this small-group tour to be very worthwhile.

  • There was some misunderstanding about our start time, I received an email the day before regarding a new start time. However, I was in Pompeii on a full day excursion and got back late so I did not see this email. I received two calls and finally a text message saying that my guide was waiting for me. Luckily we were only a few blocks away. Mido was very informative and helpful. He told us exactly what we were going to do and what to expect. We got right into the Colosseum waited for the archeologist to take us underground. As we were waiting he gave us some background information about the Colosseum and told us exactly where he would be waiting for us after. He was true to his word and was right there for us if we ever needed anything. After the Colosseum Mido took us over to the Forum and gave us a lot of really great information. This tour was fantastic and definitely one we recommend to anyone going to Rome.

  • Excellent Tour and tour guides. Having this small group was great! The section where you go underground was so interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable with stories about what went on in the Colosseum back then, you could almost visualize it. Having access to this where not many people were as well as the third tier made this tour feel like we were the only ones there.
