Overview

Relive the glory of Ancient Rome on this 3 hour truly small-group tour, led by an expert and professional guide. We limit our small groups to ONLY 6 people, ensuring a semi-private experience and a friendly environment to interact with your guide! Skip the long lines and enjoy an Access-All-Areas tour of Rome’s mighty Colosseum, including parts usually restricted to visitors with a regular ticket. In this tour, you will be able to explore the subterranean underground chambers of the Colosseum, where the wild animals were held and the gladiator prepared before battle. You will also stand in the very area where the bloody gladiator battles once took place and saw unparalleled views: the Arena floor. As you stand there and see the same view the gladiators once saw, imagine hearing the roar of the crowds that must have welcomed them. Then, climb up the gorgeous Palatine Hill for breathtaking views, and descend into the Roman Forum, which you will explore thoroughly with your expert guide.

Had an awesome trip. It was a little hard to find the meeting place because the address given did not match the meet up place.
Our family was the only ones on the tour and we have a one and three year old. Our tour guide was awesome with our children and patient with them. That is what can make or break an experience and his patients made it a fun one for us. My children were even asking for him to come back when we parted ways.

Dario was our tour guide and he did a fantastic job. He was very knowledgeable throughout but didn’t linger too long on any one subject. Would highly recommend this tour agency.

What a beautiful and great experience! Luca, our tour guide was more knowledgeable then any other tour guide we have encountered, this was our 3rd visit. I asked many questions and he answered every single one of them. He was lovely and friendly and it was an experience we will never forget. Definitely worth doing the smaller group tours, as i have done both. 10/10
