Self Guided Colosseum Virtual Reality Tour

Explore the Colosseum thanks to the first animated and interactive 3D reconstruction. With an Self Guided Colosseum Virtual Reality Tour, get to know the most important and ancient monument in the world in a new way. That is to say, a visit to the Colosseum suitable for all age groups.

Colosseum Virtual Reality Tour

Meet our staff at the designated location and join the group. Your companion will be happy to give you all the information you need to use the headset in the best way.

With our animated 3D reconstruction complemented by professional multilingual music and audio, exploring the Colosseum has never been easier and more exciting! 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 Self Guided Colosseum Virtual Reality Tour, first of all, you will virtually walk in the ancient square of the Colosseum. Secondly, you will admire the fountain of the gladiators; the Arch of Constantine; the Colossus of Nero; inside of the Arena floor Colosseum with the Velarium, which closes to start the show; you will take on the role of the emperor to decide the fate of the wounded gladiator. “Death” or “Grace? Finally, you will virtually walk through the corridors of the underground.

After the experience in Virtual Reality, our staff will accompany you to the entrance of the monument. After the security checks, wait for your guide to arrange a meeting point and a set time with you and the group. You will have about an hour to visit the Colosseum and to meet the staff again and head together, if you are not tired enough, to the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. In front of you a real open-air museum. All while guaranteeing, with an added value, an extra accompaniment to assist each of you up to the entrance.

Once you enter, your guide will show you the path inside the other two archaeological sites. Continue the visit independently with the same Colosseum Ticket Skip-the-Line.

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
