Colosseum Guided Tour

Take part in a Colosseum Guided Tour and follow your personal tour guide on a special 2000 year long journey in Ancient Rome.

Meet our staff at the agreed point (Arch of Constatine Colosseum side) and join the group. Our staff will be happy to welcome you and give you all the information you need to carry out your Colosseum Guided Tour in the best possible way. Your personal tour guide will point out the sites of interest that you are going to visit. What does the tour include? First of all, the Colosseum Guided Tour, including the museum and terrace with a panoramic view; secondly, the entrance in total autonomy, inside the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill.

Inside the Colosseum…

So, avoid the long lines thanks to one of the Colosseum Tickets Skip the Line. Together with your tour guide, go to the entrance of the Flavian Amphitheater. After the routine security checks, let the magnificence of the Colosseum inundate you completely.

The Colosseum is the first amphitheater built in marble. People came from all over the Empire to be here, to witness one of the bloodiest spectacles in all of history: the battle between the gladiators. Now it’s your turn. Now it’s up to you to imagine sitting in the stands and waiting for the surprising entry of the gladiators. Here they triumphantly arrive before the emperor and pronounce the customary phrase: “Morituri te salutant”. They know what destiny they are going to, but to have freedom anyone would do anything.

In this Colosseum Guided Tour, and thanks to the stories and anecdotes of your tour guide, retrace the stages of the construction of the amphitheater. What prompted the emperor to build it? And what did Rome look like at the time of the Flavian dynasty? Stroll through the corridors that allowed spectators to reach their sectors. Did you know that for each one there corresponded a sector and an established seat?

The richly colored ceiling; the marble of the columns; the decorated capitals; archaeological finds of all kinds. Everything was thought out and organized in a well established order. Reach a small platform and look out over the Colosseum underground. From there you can enjoy an extraordinary 360 ° panoramic view of the Colosseum. We could define it as the first stage in the history of all time. Take your time to take unforgettable photos. The terrace will certainly be the ideal place for a souvenir photo to take with you for a lifetime.

Continue the visit in total autonomy

After the Colosseum Guided Tour, your tour guide will be happy to accompany you, if you wish, to the heart of the city: the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. This is where it all began.

After reaching the entrance, and having passed the security checks, with the same Colosseum Tickets Skip the Line, the guide will greet you indicating the most suitable route for an organized and more accurate visit in total autonomy.

Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum Skip the Line Tickets

If you are not too tired, then, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. These, in short, are a true open-air museum! In other words, our tour guide will accompany you to the entrance to continue the visit in total autonomy using the same entrance ticket.

Il Colosseo come non lo avete mai visto Esperienza molto interessante per gli adulti, indispensabile per bambini e ragazzi. Grazie al visore 3D si è trasportati in modo coinvolgente nella Roma imperiale, una visione che aiuta a comprendere la visita successiva al Colosseo. Organizzazione efficiente, personale gentile e preparato. Giudizio critico dei nostri figli: “una figata”! Consigliatissimo
