Full description
Skip the line and enter the Colosseum ahead of other tourists on this express guided tour. Go back in time as your guide brings you right into the middle of the action, deep in the history of the Colosseum and the Roman Empire. After meeting your guide, enjoy your privileged access to the Colosseum through its eastern entrance above the gladiators’ underground tunnel and across the gallery, which saw thousands of injured or dead bodies carried away. Head straight to the arena floor and hear about the blood-and-thunder shows held millennia ago. Then, climb up the first floor to enjoy the stunning panoramic view it offers. Explore the monument from every angle of the first floor and immerse yourself in the brutal yet historic atmosphere that dominated the Roman amphitheater. Discover also the secluded underground level of the Colosseum with your expert guide. Closed to general visitors you can admire the dungeons where its said animals were kept and gladiators awaited prior to entering the arena. For the first time in history, it is even possible to go into a part of the center of the underground, providing a one of a kind view of this historic monument.
