This underground Colosseum and ancient Rome tour provides a great way for first-time visitors to orient themselves. Skip the line as you explore the Colosseum’s arena and maze of subterranean chambers only open to a limited number of visitors each day. You’ll also see other top attractions, including the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, and your small group size means plenty of time for questions.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a designated spot in central Rome and head straight to the Colosseum, where you’ll bypass long lines with your skip-the-line ticket. Navigate a maze of chambers beneath the Colosseum and learn about their macabre function.

Then, you'll ascend to the arena level to see where battles between fierce animals and gladiators were fought, stepping over original flooring and peering between gaps.

After exploring the arena, you’ll tick off Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum on a walking tour. Your tour concludes at the Roman Forum, where you’re free to stay and continue exploring independently.

Excellent Colosseum Tour With Guilia

We visited Rome in February and went on the Colosseum Underground Tour. It was incredible. Packed with information and our tour guide, Guilia was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed every second of the tour and would highly recommend to anyone planning a trip.
