Discover the Roman Empire’s most famous amphitheater on a guided visit at the quietest time of day, at night. Enter the amphitheater and listen as your guide brings to life the arena’s past. Imagine the crowds in the stands cheering on their favorite gladiator.  Continue to the Underground chambers and passageways that normally have restricted access to the public. See where the wild animals and gladiators were stowed before their battles and the numerous elevators that hoisted beasts into the arena. Let your guide bring the Colosseum’s history to life, with stories of gladiators that fought here and what life in the arena was like. Enjoy the advantage of visiting at night, when the crowds have gone and the monument is illuminated in lights.

    The first half of the tour is around the alter of the fatherland and the Roman forum. It was ok. Not super interesting. The second half is the colosseum, that was terrible. The guide rushed through it all and had the most sarcastic tone of excitement the whole time. Her accent is thick, which is fine, but when she’s talking super quickly because she’s done this 100 times and is super bored it’s almost impossible to understand. The bits I understood were not interesting or at all worth the price. I remember looking around at the others in the tour and they looked just as bored as me. Serious waste of money. I’ve done this tour with the colosseums official night tour and it was INCREDIBLE. Unfortunately, that tour was sold out so I resorted to this. If you’re able to get the official tour get it. If not don’t bother with this one it doesn’t come close to that experience.
