Full description
Meet your English-speaking guide outside the monumental Colosseum and get an introduction to the finest arena of the Roman Empire from an expert on Roman history.

Skip the line for a privileged look at the arena floor and an exclusive chance to stand on the same spot that the gladiators stood over 2,000 years ago. Continue to the underground tunnels and chambers, which is restricted to a selected few visitors each day. Marvel at the engineering skills of the Romans as you see the remains of the 88 elevators that lead up to the arena floor.

Not as informational as I thought

Finding our guide was stressful because there’s multiple guides beginning at the same time, running late, beginning early to where you begin to think “did I book it in the wrong language?” Our guide finally arrived but barely held up the sign, so I’m hoping we didn’t leave anyone behind. You have to go up to each sign holder and ask to see if it’s yours. Then its actually a tour with a worker of the Colosseo, not from this page. The tour guide we had was nice but hard to understand due to his accent. So lots of missing pieces, and surprisingly what no one learns through life is that through switches of emperors they took apart all of these ancient places so when you go, the stage is missing, along with all other marble accent pieces leaving it harder to understand what you’re looking at

A night visit that is worthwhile and out of the ordinary with access to underground parts as intriguing as it is interesting and a passionate guide who shares with us the fascinating history of the monument. The only regret would be the lack of lighting for the central part (the arena).
