Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Rome, Lazio

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, Rome, Lazio

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, Rome, Lazio

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

Our underground tour of the Colosseum was terrific and brought us to special places in the arena, where the bulk of the massive crowds did not have access. The floor access was super-cool, and so was the third tier access with views of the Forum and ancient Rome. A long tour, but certainly thorough. We got our money's worth.

We had a wonderful guide and it was the perfect amount of time spent in all 3 places. This tour takes you from the bottom all the way to the top of the colosseum which other tours do not offer. My entire family loved this tour

We really enjoyed this tour and really recommend the early departure time as there are very few people in the area that early. This tour gets you to areas of the Colosseum that are not very crowded and going early helps avoid the crowds even more. Our tour guide was so great and fun. The only complaint is that we were unable to see the Roman Forum as the lines were too long and we wouldn't make our next tour had we waited.

Fantastic tour that was absolutely worth it. In my opinion, a small tour is the best way to see the Colosseum, especially since we got to skip the line and have underground access. Our guide, Selena, knew her stuff, and conveyed the history of these sites with enthusiasm and accuracy. It was just the right amount of time. I highly recommend this tour and company (City Wonders) to anyone visiting Rome (or anywhere else in Italy, for that matter).

Both tour guides were very informative. All the sites were amazing and unbelievable. Be prepared to be walking a lot and climbing steep steps. Overall, it was very enjoyable experience and I highly recommend for anyone thinking about taking this tour.
