The atmosphere in the night is awesome, i recommend you watch national geographic documentary about the closseum before going .. visiting with awareness is far better, the guide was cooperative though speaking abit fast as the trip too short ... The VR part was not nice, i would not pay for it ... the closseum it self is awesome and the underground part is a piece of enginerring art and show business true foundation

The atmosphere and experience in itself was amazing. Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate. However, there was a lot of feedback on the audio electronics even after making multiple adjustments. It made it very difficult to hear the guide at times with the loud static.

The tour itself was wonderful, and informative. Our guide inside was very knowledgeable and interesting. The instructions of where we were going, when, and with who were not clear and that could definitely be improved. There were about 3 stages at the start of the tour where I thought we were starting only to find out we had to watch a video or do ticket checks, etc. I don’t mind this, but setting expectations would have been helpful.
