Full description
Experience the heart of ancient Rome on this tour of the infamous gladiator’s arena, the Colosseum Belvedere, including the underground areas, and a visit to the Roman Forum. Enter the Colosseum Arena, and let your guide bring the gladiators' games to life. Continue to the Colosseum underground, and learn about the wild animals that were once kept there before they were lifted to fight in the arena.

Finally, you will enjoy exclusive access to the 3rd floor of the Colosseum. From this height you will see the true breadth of the arena, and enjoy a unique view of Rome’s best ancient ruins. After you’ve learnt about Rome’s brutality in the Colosseum, continue to the Roman Forum. Here you’ll see the ancient Romans' civilized side. Walk through the temples and law courts that made this the center of the ancient city, and climb Palatine Hill for a spectacular view of modern Rome.
