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, Rome, Lazio

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, Rome, Lazio

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.

The Colosseum tour was awesome, the history and site is breathtaking. When you see the lines to enter, totally worth the Skip the Line and Special Access, you will not regret. Pay the little extra and save yourself the time in line if your stay in Rome is short. The guides know their stuff, whatever you learn from the tour, you will get an appreciation of the Colosseum even more.
