Full description
Your tour starts steps away from the Colosseum, where you will meet your guide, a Roman history enthusiast. After an introductory tour of the structure from outside you’ll proceed to the skip-the-line entrance, for privileged access.

Once inside, begin your tour below ground and explore the Colosseum’s tunnels, chambers and pits. This section of the Colosseum is restricted to the public and only allows a select number of visitors each day, so enjoy this exclusive chance to see more than most people do.

Admire the engineering of the 88 elevators that brought to life Rome’s best spectacle. Next you will head to the arena floor. Most visitors are restricted to walking around the edge, but you have access to walk on the floor itself, standing in the exact spot where the battles took place. After the tour of the Colosseum is over you’ll be left inside to enjoy some free time and really take in the energy of this world wonder.
