See the Colosseum and Ancient Rome by night, when you can beat the crowds and experience the breathtaking views from the third tier with this exclusive access! Be amazed by the various piazzas, statues, museums, and more!
What to Expect
Enjoy a hassle-free tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome at night and avoid the crowds.
Your tour starts with the Campidoglio, the beautiful piazza outside the Capitoline Museums designed by Michelangelo. From here, you will round the museums to find a little-known vantage point overlooking the majestic Roman Forum, closed at this hour. As the light fades, you will see the heart of Rome’s historic center, with its temples, arches, and the sanctuary of Ancient Rome’s famous Vestal Virgins.
On your way down the hill, see the Trajan’s Column and Caesar’s Forum among other ruins. Then it’s on to the highlight of your tour: the Roman Colosseum.
At this time of night, the Colosseum is virtually empty so you will have a rare experience as your guide leads you around, explaining the history and characters that make the place so fascinating. You will wander the arena floor and then venture into the underground. Few visitors ever get to visit the Colosseum underground, and fewer still see it at night, making this peaceful, spooky visit even more special.
Your tour ends before 00:00, when the night is only starting in Rome. Head to the nearby Monti area for dinner or take some time to wander around and photograph the Colosseum – a more peaceful, beautiful, and atmospheric place at this time than ever.
