Full description
Travel back in time to ancient Rome, when the Colosseum knew its moments of greatest glory. Experience reconstruction of the Colosseum in 3D, integrated with audio commentary. Walk through the square, inside the arena to the roar of ferocious lions and fighting gladiators and along mysterious underground corridors where slaves prepared the shows. After your virtual experience, skip the line to enter the Colosseum. This iconic symbol of Rome was built to accommodate 50,000 to 75,000 spectators. Once you have explored the Colosseum, continue the cultural visit at the ruins of the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, where Rome was founded.

Because we wanted a different experience this time we accessed a tour with virtual reality glasses. It was a perfect choice to better understand the grandeur of the place visited but also to better enter the "story of the place". An excellent idea that I hope to meet again at other tourist attractions such as the Romanian Forum and more. The guide who accompanied us took great care to explain what we have to do but also to make this interactive experience for children and teenagers. The little surprise at the end was welcome and will help us remember the place visited but also the wonderful experience at the Colosseum.

It was a fun introduction and staff was really friendly. Don't expect to much of the graphics. It looks a little bit like you're playing a Nintendo 64 or playstation 1 game. You also won't go inside the colloseum with the VR glasses. You do the edperience outside and then you receive a ticket to go in on your own. We booked an "upgrade" on the spot for 5 euro p.p. to go inside the colloseum with a guide. We had to wait for a little while for her to get ready, she wasn't extremely knowledgeable and we were inside for a rather short time. No regrets whatsoever. It was fun thing to do and something different!

The VR was the best part of the whole experience. The guides We're working hard to give us a great time in what was a really horrible experience. There are just too many people there, even with the line skip we waited over 30 mins and we were only in the coleseum for 20. They need to restrict the numbers. But these guides did their best and we got a lot out of the VR experience.
