Standing since the 1st century, surviving earthquakes and stone robbers, the landmark could hold over 50,000 spectators who watched gladiator contests and other spectacles.
Visit the usually inaccessible arena floor of this monument, which is listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Enter through the Gladiator’s Gate, the stage door of the Colosseum, to swiftly enter the arena floor. Explore this restricted area of the ancient landmark with your guide and see a reconstruction of the lift that brought animals to the stage.
After the tour, head to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, where your guide will ensure your entrance and leave you to explore in your own time. Feel free to ask your guide for personal tips for exploring this area.
