    Colosseum
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    You will start your tour with quick and easy entry with skip-the-line tickets and your expert guide in a group of a maximum 6 people, and enter into the Colosseum where you witness what was once a site for gladiator battles, animal fights and mass crucifixions. Then with your Virtual Reality glasses, you can have a full 360-degree view of this impressive arena to fully comprehend its grandeur as it was once meant to be seen. As you climb your way up the stairs you will enter the seating areas where over 50,000 cheering Roman spectators sat as they watched the dramatic battles below. Be sure to take your VR glasses home with you so you can relive ancient times in the comfort of your home! Your guide will then escort you down the street through the Colle Oppio park and to Emperor Nero’s Golden Palace – the Domus Aurea. Here with the aid of an official guide from the Domus Aurea who specializes in art history or archaeology will lead you through the palace which is currently an active excavation site. Please keep in mind the group size will then increase to 22 as per the policy of the Domus Aurea excavation site, however the quality and passion of these expert guides will be the same. Evidence of Ancient Rome's extreme wealth and power, Nero built a residence for himself so grand it was complete with pavilions, lakes, parks and temples which you can explore and see with your own eyes through impressive Augmented Reality reconstructions! Walk through the many rooms and corridors and discover ancient artifacts and frescoes still adorning the walls of the palace today. LIVITALY VR GLASSES One pair of LivItaly original VR cardboard glasses will be distributed and gifted to every two people on tour. In order to use the glasses, you are required to download the LivItaly app (via Apple or Android store) prior to the tour and bring the smartphone with the app on the day of the tour. Please note: VR cardboard glasses by no means replace your tour guides efforts and descriptions and serve only as an enhancement to the tour. They are in no way a video game, but instead offer 360-degree visual reconstructions of the architectural wonders that surround you.

Melanie was our guide for the Colosseo. We'd been to Rome multiple times but decided to try an "official" small group tour and were fortunate to have Melanie S all to ourselves. She was thoroughly knowledgeable, time-efficient, and fun to be with. She couldn't have been better!

Many thanks for your nice review of the Colosseum tour with Melanie. It's wonderful to hear that you felt Mel was a great guide, knowledgeable and fun, and paced the tour just right. Unfortunately, as it was undoubtably explained, the governmental agency in charge of the excavations of Nero's Palace only allows entrance to the site if accompanied by one of their own guides (for security and administrative reasons). So the quality of the tour there and the virtual relaity isn't something we have any control over. Hopefully, though, Melanie was able to give you some insights about the venue prior to your entrance that helped make the experience a little more interesting. Many thanks once again for your review Angelo and Kristin

Dear Brenda We're thrilled that you enjoyed the Colosseum and Nero's Palace tour with Arianna and, in particular, that your teens enjoyed it too. They will have hopefully returned home with new appreciation for and interest in ancient Rome and will share that with their young friends. We'll be sure to let Arianna know how much enjoyed your time with her. Thank you once again. Angelo and Kristin

Dear Sarah, We're so happy to hear that your Colosseum and virtual reality tour of Ancient Rome with Giulia went well for all the members of your family. With such a large age span in a group, it's not easy to know how to share all the history and art that there is to experience in a way that's good for kids as well as for the adults. We're so happy (but not surprised) that Giulia did an excellent job and we'll be sure to let her know your praise. Thank you for taking the time to write. Angelo and Kristin
