A memorable, essential, special-focus Colosseum tour that offers an authentic insider’s view to one of the world’s most wondrous, and exciting, landmarks: the Colosseum, where gladiators and animals used to fight for their lives!
Designed to meet the needs of a variety of travelers, from families with small children to those who don’t have much time on their hands to those that wish to add it onto other walking tours, our straight-to-the-point Colosseum tour allows participants to explore this amazing monument led by an expert guide and enjoy the rare privilege of skip-the-line access tickets and a small-group tour.
Your exclusive Colosseum tour starts right in front of the landmark, where you will meet your dedicated private guide and access easily thanks to skip-the-line priority tickets. From then onwards prepare to marvel: this astoundingly well-preserved amphitheater, one of the world’s most renowned and extraordinary landmarks, used to be a thrilling, and somewhat shocking, public arena that hosted terrible battles!
Follow your guide along the tiers and appreciate learning about the history of the Colosseum, why and by whom it was built, how and when the famed “Roman games” were held to celebrate the Roman Empire’s victories. And, naturally, immerse yourself in the period’s fascinating legendary gladiator fights, hearing about the wild beasts and soldiers involved.
Then enjoy a beautiful walk into the Roman Forum, the arch of Titus, the temple of Saturn, Vespasian and Antoninus Pius are just some of the highlights.. an immense display of evocative ruins which used to be the social, political and commercial hub of the Roman empire and as you wonder through this impressive district of temples, basilicas and vibrant public spaces, immerse yourselves in the 2000 ago daily life and customs life of the biggest, powerful emperor of all times, learning the history of its fast rise and faster fall.
Our tour will end with a climb up to the – according to legend – founding spot of Rome, the Palatine hill where Romulus decided to build his Palace (a word coming from Palatine, in fact).
You will enjoy a spectacular last view of the forums and Rome and say bye, but you are free to continue your tour visiting some other sites available on this hill, like the Domus (houses) of Augustus and Nero (visits and tickets available on request).
