Full description
Discover what lies beneath the arena floor as you witness the dungeons, underground tunnels, and chambers of the Colosseum. The tour will begin with special access to the arena floor where you will receive an introduction before descending underground.

As you stand on the Arena floor, walk in the footsteps of gladiators and imagine the roaring crowd. Get an up-close view of where the Emperor, with a single gesture, would decide the fate of the warriors waiting below. Then, descend beneath the Colosseum and see the tunnels that connected the Colosseum with the Ludus Magnus, where the Gladiators would train. Observe the chambers that would house wild animals and see the elevators that were used to release these predators onto the arena floor, to the surprise of gladiators and the delight of spectators.

You will then continue with a walk through the Roman Forum, Ancient Rome’s city centre, followed by a stroll through the ruins of the Emperors’ palaces on the Palatine Hill.

Know before you go
• For safety reasons and to limit crowding during busy periods, the Colosseum allows only 3,000 people inside at any time. This may cause a slight delay for entry if capacity has been reached, even with pre-booked reservation.
• The Colosseum Arena floor is a restricted area, visitors must provide their full name, date of birth, and a valid ID upon entry to the monument.
• All those who are booked under a reduced price ticket for ages 3-17 will also be required to show ID to prove their age.
• Please note that this may cause a delay in entry which cannot be controlled. The guide will do their best to manage any delays.
