Full description
Skip the long lines to the Colosseum and explore the largest building of the Roman Empire on a small-group tour. Built to host the gladiator battles that typified the culture of Ancient Rome, the Colosseum remains by far the most impressive building in Rome today. Meet your guide outside the Colosseum and walk to the front of the long lines with your priority entrance ticket.

Once inside the stadium, built so that members of the general public could enjoy the violent spectacles alongside the Roman emperors, learn how people were seated by social rank and wealth. Hear about the gladiatorial games that were officially banned in 438 AD and how fights between wild beasts continued until 523.

Exit the Colosseum and receive your access ticket to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Take a leisurely stroll to these attractions and see the ruins of Ancient Rome’s social and political center.
