Full description
Begin your tour of Rome's Ancient City with skip-the-line access to the Colosseum. Get acquainted with your guide, and listen to an introduction to the Colosseum. Learn about the building's incredible construction and why it is still considered an engineering marvel to this day. As you enjoy priority entrance, notice the Roman numerals above each archway as your guide leads you past the long ticket lines. Explore the first and second levels of the Colosseum as your guide brings to life the stories of the emperors, gladiators, and famous battles that make the Colosseum Rome's most celebrated Ancient monument.

With your newly acquired expertise of the Ancient Romans, you will better understand and appreciate the second part of the tour - a walk through the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Pass by the incredible triumphal Arch of Constantine as you learn the story of Rome's birth and its legendary twins, Romulus and Remus. Once inside the Roman Forum, pass by the Arch of Titus, the House of the Vestal Virgins, and the burial site of Julius Caesar — all standing on what was once a vast swampland.

The tour will then continue to the Palatine Hill where you will see the ruins of the Imperial Palaces, the extensive grounds from which the Emperors would rule the city.

Important information
Know before you go
• For safety reasons and to limit crowding during busy periods, the Colosseum allows only 3,000 people inside at any time. This may cause a slight delay for entry if capacity has been reached, even with pre-booked reservations
• All those who are booked under a reduced price ticket for ages 3-17 will also be required to show ID to prove age. Please note that this may cause a delay in entry which the guide cannot control but will do their best to manage
