    What to Expect
    Perfect for anyone who is short on time, but still wants to experience Ancient Rome's most treasured monument, this tour will bring the majestic Colosseum to life and will leave you feeling like you spent the day there. Roman citizens would come from near and far to witness the spectacular and gruesome sights on offer. Never-before-seen exotic animals would occupy the arena floor before a day of executions and gladiatorial combats would begin. 

    Following your tour guides brief introduction from the exterior, filled with fun facts of Roman civilization, you will skip the long ticket lines and enter the Colosseum. Walking through the same arches used by Romans hundreds of years ago, up the same steps, you will feel the history as you walk through its corridors and steps. Imagine along with your tour guides stories what it would have felt like in ancient times.
