Overview

Don’t see the Colosseum like a tourist, queuing for ages to access even the skip the line group entrance. See it like the gladiators did as you and your expert guide avoid any lines and enter through the side gate once used by warriors entering the ring. From there you’ll have special access to the arena floor, where you’ll learn the blood-drenched stories of horror and heroism that took place right where you’re standing. Afterwards you’ll head out for a comprehensive tour of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that will bring Ancient Rome to life.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

You’ll head into the Roman Forum and the Palatine hill to learn the the wider history of Imperial Rome. Through the stories and anecdotes of your expert guide, the ruins will come to life and you’ll have no problem imagining the heyday of this incredible civilization.

Duration: 1 hour

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

Step off the tourist track in the Colosseum and get a gladiator’s-eye-view by using their special entrance and stepping onto the normally off-limits arena floor. You can’t get closer to the action than this.
The arena floor is where people actually fought and died in the Colosseum. While most visitors only ever see it from the stands, you’ll bypass long, general entrance lines and step directly onto it via the special Gladiator’s Gate. As you marvel at the great amphitheater around you, your expert guide will tell stories to transport back nearly 2,000 years, when vicious blood sports were the most popular form of entertainment in Rome.
During your tour you’ll also explore the rest of the Colosseum, including the first floor and Roman Forum overlook.

This tour is a must see on your visit to Rome, but you want to sign up for an early time of day. There is far few people and you can enjoy the sites going early in the day. We did an 8:30 tour and by the time we finished the crowds were crazy. Our guide was amazing and explained so much about what we were seeing that it was much more enjoyable. We also got to skip the line and go in a different entrance that the public doesn't get to see. You definitely need to go this way if you're in Rome and going to see the Colosseum, which you'd be crazy not to see

My husband and i took this tour during our stay in Rome. Our guide Bruno did such a wonderful job. He explained the everything from history, architecture, social classes, restoration and much more in a clear and concise manner. The gladiator entrance gate was interesting as well. We got to see the underground structure from the arena floor where all the action took place. A well worth tour!!!

On the date of our tour it was extremely hot but our tour guide kept us moving and in the shade whenever possible- making a long walk more tolerable. She was knowledgeable and helped to take group pictures too! Our guide was especially knowledgeable of the Colosseum having been a guide within it before. The gladiator gate entrance was a highlight of the tour and my travel party loved it. Bring water bottles to refill along the way and wear comfortable walking shoes.

The tour was very informative. I learned a lot. The tour guide was really nice and knew his stuff. I recommend this if you cannot get access to the underground, at least get access to the gladiator floor.
