Full description
A special tour to visit the underground of the Colosseum. Enter the Colosseum and learn about the spectacular and incredible entertainments organized in the ancient times. Discover the techniques of construction invented by the Romans, the incredible ability of the gladiators, the violent fighting between exotic animals and the high level of technology achieved by Roman engineers to built the Colosseum.

Walk around the first tier and reach the arena to learn about the trapdoors and all the mechanisms used to animate the games. Your tour guide will keep you entertained telling and showing you about the sea-battles, the cages where lions were kept before the games started, the rooms in which the Gladiators were waiting before they reached the arena, the executions and the excitement of the spectators, and the fantastic and expensive games of all human history.

Descend to the underground, find the original structure from 5th century A.D., and explore all the tunnels and rooms where gladiators were preparing to face the fight. Your tour guide will be at disposal to answer all of your questions.
