Know before you go
- This tour operates in all weather conditions.
- The arena floor is a restricted area, so guests must provide their full name, date of birth, and a valid current ID upon entry, including those aged between 2 and 15 years old.
- Please be advised that the exact reservation times may vary slightly due to decisions made by the Colosseum administration office on or before the scheduled tour date. These last-minute changes are outside of the local partner's control but if the time will vary by 20 minutes either before or after your original tour time then you will be informed of this change by email.
- Entrance to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum will be with the tour guide only; guests cannot leave the group and enter these areas alone as they will not have an individual ticket. For group reservations, the Colosseum does not provide individual tickets but one group ticket which the guide will use for all three areas.
- Unfortunately, this tour is not wheelchair accessible.
