Full description
Meet your local expert guide and a small group of 6 people in front of the Colosseum. Skip the line and go straight into this stunning historic landmark. Explore each level of the Colosseum, from the lowest tier where the highest levels of society would watch the games, to the nosebleeds, where the plebians would sit. Take in the views from the very top levels of the Colosseum, an area of the Colosseum which hasn't been open to the public for 40 years. Hear stories of the gore and glory from your knowledgable tour guide. Learn about the ingenious design and careful stage planning that went into the production of Roman entertainment. Imagine what it must have been like to watch gladiators dressed as the great figures of myth battle each other to the death as 80,000 spectators cheered.

Walk the rows of seats where emperors once sat. Gain insight into the world of the ancient Romans through their entertainment. Learn how the Colosseum played a critical role in appeasing the masses with “bread and circuses.” Be sure to save your ticket for after the tour, where you can continue on a self-guided visit through the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum.
