Colosseum-Skip the line-Self Guided with 3D Virtual Reality (Official Product)

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet our staff to collect your skip-the-line ticket and wear a last generation Samsung Oculus VR to be virtually immersed in the ancient Rome of nearly 2000 years ago, when the Colosseum knew its moments of greatest glory and fame.

    Through our certified 3D reconstruction of the Colosseum integrated by an accurate audio description you can walk virtually in real time in the square among Roman passers-by, admiring the gilded bronze statue of Nero; inside the arena between the roar of ferocious lions and gladiators fighting; into various corridors of the mysterious underground (and typically unknown to tourists) where slaves move around silently to prepare the shows and impatient and hungry animals  ready to suddenly be project into the arena.

    Finished the virtual experience, now is the time to be escorted by our staff to the entrance "skip the line" of the most famous and best preserved ancient amphiteatre in the world, the Colosseum, to complete on your own the overview of the Colosseum’s history. The symbol of Rome, the Flavian Amphitheatre, better known as the Colosseum, built to accommodate from between 50,000 to 75,000 spectators.was the place where spectacles happened,

    Once concluded your adventure inside the Colosseum, if you are not tired enough you can continue the cultural visit using the same ticket "skip the line", inside a real open air museum: Roman Forum and Palatine Hill (house of Romulus, the founder of Rome).

    We really enjoyed our virtual reality tour - our guide Valentina was so helpful. We took my elderly mother who had some difficulty operating the VR glasses, but Valentina helped her throughout, ensuring my mum had the best possible experience. So glad we did this tour as it

    Response from ancientandrecent, Tourist Assistant & Coordinator at Colosseum-Skip the line-Self Guided with 3D Virtual Reality (Official Product)
    Responded 29 Jul 2019
    Dear Hardy, we are sorry your experience did not go as you expected. Our staff is trained to help our guest to easily enter the Colosseum and deal with the strict and complicated entrance procedures. Please be aware that in the product description we explain very well how the tour is organized: "You will be added to a small group (max 25) with a privileged entrance and after the security check you’ll be free to explore the Colosseum by yourself. After the visit of the Colosseum you will be escorted at the entrance of the Roman Forum where you can visit the Forum and Palatine Hill by yourself." The guide waits at the meeting point 10/15 minutes after the meeting time in order to escort everybody to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. So after this waiting time, the guide leaves with the guests who arrived on time, in order to respect their punctuality too. Best Regards, Stefania Ancient & Recent Assistant
