Overview
The Colosseum’s global renown is evident in the crowds it attracts. Save hours of waiting in line with a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Colosseum, which grants you access to underground chambers usually off limits to the public. In addition to descending to the gladiator chambers on the lower levels, you’ll take a guided walk around the ruins of the Roman Forum and absorb sweeping city views from Palatine Hill.
What to Expect

Your tour begins at a designated meeting point near the Colosseum, where you’ll greet your guide and sail past long entrance lines with a skip-the-line admission ticket. Once inside, you’ll descend to subterranean chambers usually off limits to the public. Explore tunnels, chambers, and pits formerly used to contain wild animals and gladiators preparing to fight.

See, too, the arena floor, which you’ll have the chance to walk on, before enjoying some free time to absorb the ancient wonder of the world. Continue to the ruins of the Roman Forum and snap photos of panoramic city views from the top of Palatine Hill.

Radu is an awesome guide

We toured all these great historical sites. Having a guide and hearing the history of the city was so informative and interesting. Radu did our second leg of the tour, made it interesting and was easy to hear and understand.

Avoid this operator

Like some of the other 1 star reviews I've read, we experienced some common issues. 1. No one at the designated meeting point (green kiosk) by the entrance to train station. After waiting for some sign from this crowd, we were fortunately helped by one...More
