What to Expect
Be one of the first to access the underground passages beneath Rome’s Colosseum and see areas not usually open to the public.

Skip the lines to the most famous arena of the Roman Republic and see the tunnels where gladiators prepared to fight, and lions and tigers were caged before being hoisted onto the arena floor through trap doors via lifts and pulleys. The extended Colosseum tour also takes you to the 3rd tier level for a more rounded and comprehensive view of this ancient structure.

Then, head to the Roman Forum and walk the “Via Sacra” of Ancient Rome, once alive to the sound of festivals and triumphal processions. Start at the temple that houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Your guide will point out the shops of the moneylenders and the home of the Vestal Virgins.

End on Palatine Hill where, according to legend, Romulus and Remus were discovered by a she-wolf. They went on to fight for the right to build their own city, making this the exact spot where Rome was founded. See the ruins of the decadent palaces and gardens of the Empire’s nobility.

Headsets are provided for the duration of the tour to hear and interact with your guide at all times.
