Full description

Discover unseen facets of the Colosseum. Access the arena floor through the gladiators’ gate and imagine their experience stepping out under the gaze of thousands of noisy spectators.

From the arena, look down into the dungeons where the gladiators prepared themselves beforehand and where wild animals were kept. Find the remains of public buildings, temples, the sacred dwelling of the Vestal Virgins, and more in the Forum - the political, social, and religious core of the city.

Learn stories of the political dramas that played out and the lives of people who lived 2,000+ years ago. Finally, head to Palatine Hill, where Romulus chose to found his new city. It became home to the rich and powerful during the Republic. The remains of some of their palaces remain visible today.

Very knowledgeable guide who spoke excellent English. Friendly and with a sense of humour. The audio system worked well and we could clearly hear our guide. We were late starting due to some of the group being late arriving which was a little frustrating as we were there 25 minutes before, as directed which resulted in a lot of standing around. However, if we were the ones late we would’ve been grateful for them not leaving without us. A very enjoyable, fascinating three hours.

This review is based on the experience of booking 8 tours in total for this trip all with GetYourGuide, each and every one of them completed in a fashion timely manner. This tour was amazing, my son has been at the colosseum before and he was amaze for the knowledge of our guide and the view from the arena… completely a different view …. Our guide gave us the right amount of time for every corner at the colosseum and explained very detailed the Ancient Rome. We saw a ton of people there and our guide was known by security guards and … I would say this is truly a skip the line experience!!!
