Full description
Get privileged access to the Colosseum by skipping the long ticket line and entering through a separate entrance. 

Enter through the Gladiator’s Gate, the stage door of the Colosseum, to swiftly access the arena floor. 

Visit the usually inaccessible arena floor of this monument, which is listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Standing since the 1st century, surviving earthquakes and stone robbers, the landmark could hold over 50,000 spectators.

Explore this restricted area of the ancient landmark with your expert guide. Stand right where the games took place and imagine standing in front of the roaring crowds.

After the tour, head to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, where your guide will ensure your entrance and leave you to explore in your own time. Feel free to ask your guide for personal tips.

Prepare for the activity

Meeting point

• Meet your guide at Largo Gaetana Agnesi, a small, oval-shaped ‘square’ near the Colosseum. Look for a guide wearing GetYourGuide attire and holding a red GetYourGuide flag. • By metro: Take metro line B (the blue line) to the ‘Colosseo’ stop. After the turnstiles, follow the signs for ‘Largo Gaetana Agnesi’, taking an immediate right down the tiled hall to the escalators in the metro station. At the top of the escalator, head right and up a short flight of stairs to exit the station. Once outside, turn left and take the stairs ahead on the left to arrive at Largo Gaetana Agnesi. • On foot: At the ‘Colosseo’ metro station look for the ‘Largo Gaetana Agnesi’ exit, following the same instructions as if you were arriving by metro (see above). If you reach the top floor exit first look for the square, located a few meters away from the metro exit and directly facing the Colosseum.
