Full description
Join this special access Colosseum arena tour where you will experience the wonder of the monument from an amazing vantage point on the Arena floor. Standing on the floor you will have an amazing view of the arena as a whole and get a closer look at the ruins of the underground tunnels which housed the various wild animals which would be brought up for battle.

Following a brief introduction from the outside of the Colosseum, your professional guide will then take you on an exciting journey through the history of this magnificent monument. Learn about its design and creation, the variety of battles which took place here and who had the best seats in the house, all whilst reliving the experience of the gladiators from this exclusive perspective. 

Your tour guide will then take you through the rest of the monument, bringing to life ruins around you, with stories of political drama and intrigue as well as daily life in ancient Rome, as you visit the first and second levels.
