Once known as the Flavian Ampitheatre, the Rome Colosseum was easily the largest building of the Roman Empire, built to host the gladiator battles that typified the culture of Ancient Rome. Still by far the most impressive building in Rome today, the Colosseum is a must-visit attraction and, as such, draws incredibly long queues! After meeting your expert guide nearby, start your Colosseum tour by skipping the long lines and heading directly inside with your priority-entrance ticket.
Your first stop is the Colosseum's fascinating underground level, open to a limited amount of people each day. Explore the network of underground passages, chambers and cells as your guide brings this subterranean maze to life with tales of gore and glory! It was here that Roman gladiators prepared for battle, and where the fearsome, wild animals they fought were caged.
Working upward, you'll see the arena next. Rather than walking round the edge as most do, you get to step right into the space where battles were once fought. Little of the original arena floor still exists, but the gaps allow you to enjoy clear views of the underground levels below.
Your Colosseum tour now comes to an end, but there is more of Ancient Rome to see! Take a leisurely walk to the Roman Forum -- the sprawl of ruins that was the heart of ancient Rome. Head up Palatine Hill with your guide to see where rich Romans once lived, and enjoy views of Nero's Circus Maximus, where chariot races were held. Your tour ends on the Via Sacra, the main street of ancient Rome that leads to Capitoline Hill.
Please note: the order of which sites are visited may be reversed on this itinerary, although all sites as mentioned above will be visited.

According to me, this tour was great. Our guide was friendly and informative and guided us expertly through the tourist throng. More stories of people rather than buildings would have been nice but overall an excellent experience.

We booked this tour thinking it was going to be great, but it exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Sev was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and humorous. He kept our attention the entire time. This is a MUST if you are visiting the Colloseum for the first time.
