Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

Begin your tour of Rome’s most iconic monument with Skip-the-Line access directly through the Gladiator’s Gate. Once the main exit for defeated contenders, this special entrance leads you directly to the parts of the Colosseum most tourists don’t get to see.

Your first stop is the Colosseum Underground – the backstage area where gladiators prepared for battle. Here, your expert, English-speaking guide will call on their historical and archaeological expertise to let you imagine the space as it once was. Scenery and caged wild animals stood ready to be hoisted into the arena by ingenious pulleys. You’ll practically feel the gladiators’ tense anticipation and hear the roar of the blood-thirsty crowd.

Then, walk in the gladiators’ footsteps on a partially reconstructed arena stage – a unique and amazing photo opportunity. And unlike the gladiators, you’ll get to ascend from the Arena Floor to the Colosseum’s second tier, where fans cheered the violent spectacles below.


Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

The next stop on the tour takes you back to the very beginning. The Palatine Hill is the spot Romulus chose to found the city that would become Rome in 753 BC – a decision that ended in tragedy for his brother Remus. Here, steeped in history, you’ll enjoy a spectacular preview of your next destination: the Roman Forum.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

The Forum and the Via Sacra, the Sacred Way, were the heart of Ancient Rome. All of Roman life could be found in this bustling marketplace: commerce and trade, political rallies, military parades, and the sacred ceremonies of the Vestal Virgins.

Duration: 30 minutes

A very enjoyable and interesting tour. Plenty of time to take in all the key locations and photo opportunities. Valerio was our guide and did an excellent job. The radios provided also worked without and issues. Plenty of walking involved but well worth it.

Great tour with a truly small group (I think there were five of us). The guide, Patrick, was very knowledgeable and friendly and even brought photos to show us how things looked when they were first built. We got immediate entry into the Colosseum (even skipping the “skip the line” line), got to see all the parts of the Colosseum from the basement to the top tier (combined with a larger group). We finished at the Roman Forum, where it was back to our small group and Patrick giving us insight on the history. It was a great tour and well worth the price.

Our guides were all excellent and very knowledgeable. The Colosseum is huge, even in its current reduced state and even in comparison to today’s modern stadia. This tour was very long and by the time we got to the Roman Forum we were flagging a bit. A superb tour that we will remember for a long time to come!
