Overview

Ancient Rome Small Group Tour with Arena Access offers you a complete gladiatorial experience of the Colosseum, as part of a small friendly group. It covers the three main sites of Ancient Rome led by an enthusiastic, licensed guide.

On our Small Group Tour with Arena Access, you have the chance to explore Ancient Rome.

You will enter the Colosseum from a special entrance that will leave you directly onto the Arena Stage, where the Gladiators used to enter before the fightings!

You will meet with your guide and the rest of your group (up to 24 people) in our office near to the Colosseum.

Your guide is a licensed expert guide who has a real and infectious passion for Ancient Rome and its history. From the outset you will be thoroughly engaged as you begin to learn all the ins and outs of the Ancient Roman period, making your way to its centrepiece- the Colosseum.

You will bypass the crowds waiting in line in front of the Colosseum as you head to a special reserved entrance the other side of the Colosseum. Of course with this access, you will skip the line to enter the Colosseum, but there is something else which makes it even more unique.

You will be using the very same entrance once used by the gladiators as they stepped out onto the Colosseum arena to begin their bloody combats! Together with your guide, you will be transported back to the time when the Colosseum was the entertainment centre of Rome. 

You will stand on the arena (a restricted area of the Colosseum) where all sorts of thrilling spectacles took place. You’ll also get to grips with the mechanics behind these AD performances, you peer down from the arena into the Colosseum’s dungeons below.

Your tour will continue to the first and second floor of the Colosseum, as you explore this fascinating monument in greater depth. From the Colosseum, you will climb up to one of the seven hills of Rome, Palatine Hill. Here you can enjoy panoramic views of the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus. This was the choice location for the houses of the Emperors and wealthy Romans, when you’re up there you’ll see why!

Next, you’ll really get amongst the ruins of Ancient Rome as you stroll through the Roman Forum. Once the centre of public events in Ancient Rome, the Forum was the main place where all important events, such as the market, processions, public speeches and trails, used to take place.

Here you will admire the stunning ruins of Ancient Roman buildings and monuments, which your guide will be happy to decipher them for your group, making sense of it all for you and really helping you to envisage life in Ancient Rome.

This was my first time in Rome and was a beautiful way to experience the Colosseum. We also booked the early morning tour of the Vatican with the same company and it too was a great experience. Guided tours are much better as you do learn more and can ask questions. Our guide was very good and did not rush us as this sometimes happens on guided tours. Thank you for providing really good tours for us when we were in Rome.

Having the opportunity to enter the Colosseum through the Gladiator’s Gate made this tour extra special. Our guide was amazing, he was extremely well versed in the history of ancient Rome and you could see he really enjoyed his job. We did not have to use our headsets as there was only 6 of us on this tour. We booked it online and it was easy to book and user friendly. This tour I highly recommend.

If I ever come to Italy again I will definitely book with this company. Our tour of the Colesseum and the forum was a great experience. Even though we had to use the headsets, we could clearly hear our guide and she always asked if we wanted to ask any questions.
