Full description
This is an ultimate experience in the Colosseum. You will have to access the most restricted area of this ancient monument that was closed to the public since the games stopped in the 6th century. This tour has limited availability, and the starting times may vary. You will meet the staff at the office in Via della Polveriera 8. Here, you will be able to take some beautiful wide angle and panoramic photos of the Colosseum and the surrounding areas before the tour begins. Being one of the most visited monuments in the world, there is regularly a long ticket line at the Colosseum. By joining this Official Colosseum Belvedere Tour, you will have access to 5 different levels of this monument, like no other tour does and you will also be provided with skip-the-line entrance tickets, so the group can head straight inside and not waste time standing around in ticket lines. As you walk inside the Colosseum, you will begin to feel the magnitude of where you are.  Exploring the ground floor level and up to the second tier, your guide will recreate the past with stories of epic battles, painting pictures in your mind, bringing to life the walls that surround you. Learn about the types of games and ferocious battles that the Romans enjoyed the most. See where the emperor would be perched, high above the arena floor, ready to decide the fate of another gladiator as he stood before a roaring Roman crowd. Along with providing you with expert knowledge, your guide will also point out the best places to capture that perfect picture during your tour, as you tour the circumference of the Colosseum.

Very smooth, well explained & our guide was very informative,

Book the full tour to include the underground & the upper levels. You get a much better understanding of the place, how it worked and the life’s of the slaves, gladiators, senators & the Emperor. Alas the ladies of Ancient Rome didn’t get a seat and had to stand at the top tier!

Amazing experience

Our tour was fantastic. Our guide, Georgio was excellent and knew so much. We were the only ones on the tour so we had exclusive access to the top section of the Colosseum which was amazing. The views are incredible. We didn’t realise our tickets included a tour of the Forum and Palatine Hill as well, so we’d paid twice for that without realising. We’d highly recommend the Belvedere tour.
