Full description
No trip to Rome would be complete without a visit to the iconic Colosseum and the neighboring Forum and Palatine Hill. On this guided tour you will see the sites with the added experience of seeing the Colosseum through the eyes of the gladiators on the arena floor and in the underground passages.

Learn about the history and architecture of the Colosseum that has been standing for nearly two millennia. See the first two tiers of the amphitheater, stand on the arena floor and look up around you into the stands as the gladiators would have done, surrounded by cheering spectators.

Then, explore the underground passageways that lie beneath the arena, where wild animals were kept and gladiators prepared themselves for battles. This is where much of the behind-the-scenes action took place, unknown even to most Roman citizens at the time.

Then in the Forum you will see where the public life unfolded. Amongst the remains of offices, temples, shrines and the senate house your guide will enthrall you with stories of the lives of citizens, senators and slaves. On the Palatine Hill you will walk through the palaces of emperors where the legendary Romulus supposedly founded the great city.
