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.

Don't use this company. No upper tiers, but the company is a scam. I am surprised TA lends their name to this group.
