Colosseum Underground VR Guided Tour

Take a Colosseum Underground VR Guided Tour and start your journey in Ancient Rome. Join the group and set off to discover the Colosseum.

The Colosseum is the most famous Roman amphitheater in the world. Namely, a 2000 year long story that tells of gladiators; bloody spectacles; ferocious animals and strength. So, through a fun and immersive 3D experience, learning its history has never been easier. In other words, it is suitable for all age groups. Give shape and color to your imagination.

What to see in Virtual Reality

With our animated 3D reconstruction complemented by professional multilingual music and audio, exploring the Colosseum has never been more fun! All the contents within the reconstruction that you will observe, were handled by the well-known Prof. Filippo Coarelli and by the Digilab Archeo & Arte3D department of the La Sapienza University of Rome.

By participating in a Colosseum Underground VR Guided Tour, you will find yourself, in other words, walking virtually in the ancient square of the Colosseum; you can then admire the fountain of the gladiators, the Meta Sudans; the Temple of Venus and Rome, built by Hadrian in 131 AD; the gigantic Colossus of Nero 32 meters high; and finally the Arch of Constantine, in all its beauty.

Inside the Colosseum arena, look around. You will feel like you are really there, in the center of the arena and having all eyes on you. Look up, here is the Velarium, the big red curtain, opening and closing to cover the spectators; watch out for ferocious lions; then watch the fight between the gladiators; finally, become the emperor and decide the fate of the wounded gladiator. “Death” or “Grace”? Conclude the experience by descending into the mysterious Colosseum underground.

Once in the Colosseum…

The time has come to discover what is left today of all the amazing structure you have seen in Virtual Reality.

Together with your companion, enter the Flavian Amphitheater. This will give you the Colosseum Ticket Skip the Line with which you can later enter the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Thanks to a Colosseum Underground VR Guided Tour, avoid the long queues. After the entry procedures and security checks, let its magic invade you completely.

Once inside you will be presented with your reference tour guide. This will accompany you throughout the journey inside the Colosseum underground and then in the monument itself. Trace the history of the Colosseum and the hypogeum thanks to the stories of your tour guide. Listen carefully to legends; anecdotes and secrets of the most famous monument in the world. It will be at your complete disposal to answer all your questions and concerns. Once you have finished the Colosseum Guided Tour, with the Colosseum Ticket Skip the Line, given to you previously, go, if you are not tired, to the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. The visit continues in a completely independent and autonomous way in the two most important archaeological sites in Rome.

What to see in the Colosseum underground?

The hypogea are the area of Colosseum underground. In short, that labyrinth of rooms; corridors; animal cages, which served as the backstage of the shows. By participating in a Colosseum underground VR Guided Tour, you will have the exclusive opportunity to visit them.

Through a 160 meter long continuous walkway, go around the 15 corridors of the underground area. Thanks to a guided tour by the Colosseum staff, close your eyes and imagine giving color and shape to the imagination. Go back in time. Here are the slaves who work hard to create the scenography; feeding ferocious animals; operate the mechanism of counterweights and machines that allowed the gladiators to suddenly go up to the arena. And then the gladiators, with their armor ready and afraid of battle. You will almost feel like you can hear the impatient crowd above you, the screams of the spectators. A single gesture from the emperor and everything will begin.

The real story, the real beauty, is what is hidden behind a veil, or in this case behind the arena floor Colosseum.

Then? What are you waiting for? Experience the thrill of the Colosseum through the history of its underground.

    Nous avons réservé la visite guidée complète avec les sous-terrains. La guide Marta était très sympathique et agréable. L’expérience VR était intéressante et divertissante. Le bémol est que chacun vit son expérience VR seul de son côté. Les vidéos en VR projetées dans le casque sont commentées par un audioguide et le guide est là uniquement pour répondre à nos questions et nous donner des indications sur l’utilisation du casque. Après avoir visionné les vidéos VR, Marta nous a accompagnés jusqu’à l’entrée du Colisée puis c’est un autre guide qui nous a fait la visite. Nous étions un peu déçus de ne pas rester avec elle jusqu’à la fin. En bref, ce fût une visite sympathique mais pour une visite guidée, nous nous attendions à plus d’interactions avec la guide lors de l’expérience VR.

    Non credevo fosse possibile. L’esperienza in VR è straordinaria. Utilissima ed istruttiva. Ti permette di vedere il Colosseo come era prima! Wow…. 🙂 Dopo l’esperienza siamo stati accompagnati dentro e indirizzati da un’altra guida per seguire un percorso prestabilito e visitare i sotterranei. E’ stato il tour per bello che io abbia mai fatto!!!

Un'emozione per grandi e piccoli Esperienza entusiasmante che ha coinvolto e affascinato anche le bambine. Facile individuare la location di ritrovo, personale diponibilissimo, sia via telefono che wa, cortesi e rapidi nelle risposte. Contenuti ben organizzati e ottimamente proposti, della durata giusta per essere chiari e piacevoli. Ricostruzione 3d coinvolgente e interattività semplice anche per i più piccoli. Grazie

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
