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.
