Magical evening tour of the Colosseum! It starts inauspiciously enough amidst the touts and hustlers outside the Colosseum gates, but once inside, the world goes away. Our host, Antonella, was delightful -- funny and calm and an extremely knowledgeable historian who was able to bring the ancient world to life through stories and specific details about the inner working of the Colosseum and the people who lived, died, cheered, ruled, killed, and even peed and pooped there. Brava!

During the "tour" we had the opportunity to go into the "underground" of the Colosseum for the first time and were deeply impressed. The tour guide's explanations were extremely informative, and she immediately responded to questions and answered them comprehensively. She was obviously very well prepared. The fact that we were all connected to her via headphones/transmitters was a great idea, because in this way it was not absolutely necessary to be positioned right next to her in the sometimes very narrow corridors in order to be able to understand everything.

Our late night tour of the Colosseum was excellent. The tour began with a useful Virtual Reality film and then moved into the Colosseum. The tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The timing and pace of the tour was just right. (1hr 15mins). Going at night was magical and seeing underground was fascinating. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because our time was moved from 9pm to 10pm at short notice. Thos did affect our plans, but essentially it was worth it.
