After booking your desired departure time, meet your guide outside the Colosseum and bypass long ticket lines often in excess of two hours.
Once inside, you'll explore the Colosseum’s subterranean chambers and pits. These are typically off-limits and only accessible to a select number of visitors daily, so this tour lets you view more than most people get to see.
As you explore, hear about the gladiators and wild animals that waited here before fights, and then ascend to the arena floor. While most visitors are only allowed around the perimeter, you will stand on the remaining floor, where you can see the underground chambers.
Afterward, walk to the nearby Roman Forum, once the city’s political hub. Enjoy views of the ruins before climbing Palatine Hill, the residential area of ancient Rome’s elites, and gaze down at the Circus Maximus chariot circuit.
Your tour concludes on the Via Sacra, ancient Rome’s principal thoroughfare.
Please note: The order of sites visited may be reversed during your tour.
