What people are saying about Colosseum Underground
Brilliant tour! The extra underground and top level viewing of the Colosseum was really worth the extra cost and would high recommend this tour for the Colosseum! Tom (the Roman Forum Guide) especially went above and beyond to make it exciting, interesting and informative, he was incredibly knowledgable on the history of Rome but also good at describing it in an engaging way to novices like us - I am so glad we had him as our guide for the Forum! We were very glad to have a guided tour through the maze of buildings in the Forum and would recommend it to anyone. FIVE STARS!
The tour took place during the morning and therefore we dodged a lot of the bigger crowds. It was well organised and the guides were friendly and informative. The colosseum was amazing and we had lots of opportunities to look at and take pictures at each level. Moving onto the forum and Palantine Hill we met our guide Tom who was amazing. He lived and obviously loved the history of Rome and entertained us with fascinating facts and reminded us about lessons from history. It made for a fascinating tour which went by in a flash! Highly recommended
It was a wonderful walk through the ancient history with two very knowledgeable guides. The first part covered Roman forum and Palatine hill with a very smart guide, who turned out to be a history teacher. He has given us a lot of information. I wish we had at least a couple of hours of more time with him so as to assimilate all the information. The colosseum trip, including the underground and arena was amazing too. Besides the guides, the two ladies whom we met at the meeting point were very nice and welcoming.
With the thought of spending 4 hours at the Colosseum and the Forum (on a day forecasted for 80 degrees) we were a little worried we were in over our heads. We could not have been more engaged with the guides who shared their knowledge and expertise of Roman history, tradition and culture. The ability to have the group imagine ourselves in the height of Roman life was curated with stories, events and historical facts. It was an pleasure and memorable experience my family will cherish.
It was wonderful to have the knowledge and passion of an archaeologist and University lecturer guide us around the Colosseum and Roman forum. They made us imagine what it was like centuries ago, the politics, living conditions and the way the law worked. The tour was so interesting, the time passed so quickly. I would recommend the late afternoon time slot as it was cooler and the crowds had dissipated somewhat.
