Overview
Nobody wants to waste hard-earned vacation time waiting in Rome’s scorching daytime heat. Save up to three hours by prebooking skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum. Inside the 2,000-year-old monument, your guide provides guided commentary, making your experience more enriching than if you were to visit independently. This tour also includes a walking tour that covers Via Sacra and the sprawling Roman Forum. Upgrade to include the Colosseum's arena floor and underground chambers, places many visitors don't see.

Highlights
  • Beat the crowds with skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum in Rome
  • Upgrade to gain access to areas usually restricted to the public
  • Guide provides a comprehensive overview of ancient Roman history
  • See more in less time on a walking tour that heads straight to the highlights
What to Expect
Your tour begins near Oppian Hill, from which you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum. On arrival at the world wonder, you’ll avoid long lines with your fast-track pass and head straight inside the Colosseum. Travel back 2,000 years as your guide tells stories of gladiator battles, bloody animal fights, and executions in front of 50,000-strong crowds of spectators. If you’ve opted to upgrade your experience, you’ll then visit the arena floor and subterranean chambers, which are usually closed to the general public. Visit cells in which criminals and wild animals were kept, and follow in the footsteps of Roman gladiators in the arena.   After ample time at the ancient landmark, you’ll continue to the Roman Forum via Via Sacra. The sprawling site has minimal signage, but your guide takes you to the highlights and gives you the inside scoop. Learn about the historical significance of the House of the Vestal Virgins and the Temple of Julius Caesar before concluding your tour with sweeping city views atop Palatine Hill.

Our guide was called Selenia, from start to finish she was very welcoming and friendly. The tour itself was amazing and very interesting, celebrating a 50th Birthday, made it very special thank you! Will recommend Citywonders to friends and family when they visit Rome. :)

Amazing tour. Our tour guide, Dorianna, spoke excellent English and was an archeologist on the site so was full of knowledge. She went at a good pace and we were given earphones so we could hear her clearly without standing next to her. Take a water bottle as you can keep
