Overview

For 1,700 years, the Colosseum Underground was closed to the public: not anymore. Join this Colosseum Underground tour and enjoy skip-the-line admission and exclusive access to the restricted Colosseum Underground and Arena.  
First, join your expert guide for a tour of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. See the glorious ruins of the Roman Empire in the Roman Forum; our expert guide will paint a picture of life as it was here all those years ago. Climb the Palatine Hill and step out on an amazing view of Rome in this former home of Emperors. 
Into the Colosseum, and step out on the Arena floor — as the gladiators did, 2,000 years ago. Discover the bloodiest battles in this iconic amphitheater's history, where over 400,000 men were killed.
After the Arena, it's time to go underground. Descend to the Colosseum Underground, where gladiators prepared for their thrilling games, and where wild animals were kept before they fought in the Arena.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. Our tour guide, Beatrice ("Bea"), was very knowledgeable and engaging. The history and little tidbits you learn on the tour really enhance seeing the Colosseum, Palatine Hil, and the Roman Forum. Going to the ground and underground level of the Colosseum was cool. I highly recommend this tour.

We had an 8.30am start, and it was incredible to walk onto the arena floor, look up and see no one else!! Our guide was brilliant and brought the Colosseum to life. We then went for a fascinating tour to the Palatine Hill, and the Forum. There was a lot of walking, and many steps, but we enjoyed every minute!! Thoroughly recommend!!

Really enjoyed, Julia our guide was very witty and kept us engaged throughout. Underground and stage visit was by far worth the extra. Be prepared for lots of walking!

We had a fantastic time with Vincenzo our tour guide. We started with a small group that was combined with another small group to see the underground. Because it rained we were not able to see the underground part of the Colosseum. We then toured the Colosseum and Forum. Vincenzo was very knowledgeable about the area. I appreciated the insight he gave to the sight.

This tour takes you places others don't. The underground complex of the Colosseum is a must see. You will appreciate the genius of the engineers who designed the ancient world's greatest theater complex. Hint: Watch Russell Crowe in "Gladiator" before you go and you'll be able to fully visualize the mechanics of the underground architecture.
