Overview

Our Guided Tour of the Colosseum with entrance from the Arena is the ultimate way to visit the symbol of Rome!

You will join a small group (maximum 25 people) and an English-speaking guide in our office near the Colosseum.

From here you will head to a special entrance of the Colosseum, reserved only for customers joining this tour.

You will skip all the lines, thus maximize your time in Rome: our special reservation will let you enter the amphitheatre directly into the Arena, the very same stage Gladiators used to join the fights! From this stage you will visit the ring that overlooks the undergrounds of the Colosseum: while you take in the amazing view, our guides will share their knowledge about the history of Ancient Rome and of the Colosseum in particular.

Our guides are all licensed and have a degree either in Art History or Archaeology and enrich their explanation adding amazing anecdotes about the Colosseum, its spectators, the fights between wild beasts and gladiators, and the lives of the powerful Emperors and politicians of the time!

Your 3 hours tour of Ancient Rome will continue to the Palatine Hill, one of Rome’s seven hills. Here Emperors and wealthy families used to have their houses built, to enjoy the stunning view over the Roman Forum and Circus Maximum: the panorama is still breathtaking!

Your group will then walk down the Palatine Hill and stroll among the ruins of the Roman Forum, an archaeological area that the guide will bring alive sharing more history and anecdotes about Ancient Rome.

Our guides use overlay books and 3D pictures to show you how each column, temple and building used to look like at that time. You will understand what those ruins used to represent, linking them to the main characters and events of Ancient Rome’s history. Feel like a Gladiator: visit the Colosseum entering from the Arena stage and skip all the lines!

Definitely worth the money as you see so many sites and get into the arena at the Colesseum. We had a good guide who was also friendly and did not rush our group. The Colesseum was a fantastic place to visit and it is much better with a guide.

I can't say enough or recommend enough about how good this tour is. Our guide was funny, informative, and well engaged. The groups are nice and small and easy to follow and entering the arena from the gladiator’s entrance was simply amazing.

Skipping the line is the best way to see the sights in Rome. Standing for hours in queues is not pleasant and this tour was very pleasant. No lines, a good guide and well organized. Thank you so much for such a good tour.

It was raining when we took this tour, however; it did not dampen our spirits. Our guide made it fun and the Colesseum was amazing.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who comes to Rome. We visited Rome 3 years ago and had taken large group tours. This one was a small group which made it much easier to understand the guide was saying.
