Full description
Meet your guide at the triumphant arch of Emperor Constantine before we whisk you through the fast track Colosseum Entrance. Look down from above at the complex chambers and interconnecting structures of the underground areas. It is difficult to appreciate the complex chambers and interconnecting structures by walking around the underground areas which are open (not many). From the main level, however, your guide will explain the mechanics of the Colosseum at it's height in 81 A.D. when literally thousands of captives and many more wild animals were slain.

Inside the Colosseum itself, your expert guide will walk you around the circumference of the amphitheater and up to it's mid-point, from where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the Colosseum basement below and the Roman Forum nearby. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be granted access to the Roman Forum for a self-guided visit.
