Full description
Experience one of Ancient Rome’s most impressive monuments from a new perspective on a virtual reality tour of the Colosseum with an English-speaking guide. Explore the legendary building via animated and interactive 3D historical reconstructions, combined with multilingual audio and heroic musical backgrounds!

Meet your guide to collect your skip-the-line ticket and state-of-the-art Oculus VR (Virtual Reality) headset. Then, follow in the footsteps of the emperors, gladiators and Roman citizens who would fill the arena to watch the blood-curdling spectacles of the Roman Empire. Experience the roar of the ferocious lions and gladiators in combat as the monument is brought to life before your eyes.

Access different areas of this mighty symbol of Rome, including the exterior statue to Nero and the upstairs tiers where the crowds would sit. Accompany your guide to the ground floor to complete your virtual reality expedition, and experience the mysterious (and typically unknown to tourists) underground areas to see the slaves moving silently around as they prepare to make each show a success.

Using your VR glasses, travel through various corridors and see gladiators getting ready to go into battle. Get a good look at a detailed reconstruction of the hoists (normally invisible to visitors) that were used to suddenly project beasts into the arena, and much more!
