Make the most of your time in the city by pre-booking this guided tour with fast track entry. Bypass the public entrance line, and enter the amphitheater from the same entrance that gladiators once used. Explore the grounds with a guide, and see highlights such as the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

What to expect
  • Your tour begins by meeting your guide at the local tour office near the Colosseum; then walk to the special entrance reserved for members of this tour.  Skip the regular lines and maximize your time at the Colosseum as you enter the amphitheater directly onto the arena floor, where gladiators and wild animals engaged in bloody fights. Visit the ring overlooking the underground sections of the Colosseum, and learn about its history from your guide, who has a degree in either art history or archaeology. Listen to anecdotes about the glory days of the arena and the lives of the emperors and senators of the time.  Next, leave the Colosseum and walk to Palatine Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome, where emperors and other wealthy residents lived. Take in the view of the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus, and then walk down the hill to explore the ruins of the forum, where your guide shares more stories and uses books and 3D pictures to show you how the site looked during the days of Ancient Rome. Your tour ends with return to your starting point.

Diego was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and relayed the information in a warm and friendly atmosphere. My friend and I learned a lot. He was also very accommodating since I have trouble walking up steps and hills. He always waited for me to catch up to the group. L

You will be entertained !
Aug 2021
There is something magical about standing on Palatine Hill, in the Roman Forum or in the Arena at the Colosseum. Our guide was very welcoming and entertaining, with a deep expertise in the sites we were visiting. The tour program was very professional, located very close to the historical sites -- a memorable experience that was a great addition to our trip. Would definitely recommend for those looking to experience these incredible historic sites.

Also, I should mention that the past year has been difficult for the tour guides of Italy; so, if you are inclined, this year it is particularly worth hiring a guide for these historic venues. They definitely appreciate it and, at least in my experience, provide truly exceptional insights.

Great tour of the Colosseum & Forum
Oct 2020
We booked this small group tour as we wanted an in-depth look at the Colosseum and the Forum. So glad we did. Dennis was an excellent guide - extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about Rome's history. There was no question he didn't know the answer to and he was as enthusiastic at the start of the three hours as he was at the end. Highly recommend.

Fantastic experience
Aug 2020
Wow. We rarely do tours as we like our independence but this was so worth it! Dennis was an absolutely fantastic guide with his incredible knowledge and heartfelt respect of the colosseum's history. Felt lucky to visit when there were hardly any crowds. Would recommend the arena entrance and stand where the gladiators awaited their fate

So glad we booked this last minute
We planned to see the Colosseum ourselves but so pleased we booked this an hour before we went, very knowledgeable guide, we wouldn't have found out so much about each places history, seeing the amazing views of this beautiful city, the guide points out and tells you huge amounts about each location, this tour takes you to those special places you'd miss on your own.
