Full description

The tour begins from the outside, admiring the imposing facade of the Colosseum, originally named Flavian Amphitheater. Walk through the corridors visited in ancient times by millions of people and discover what were the spectacular activities that took place inside.

Learn the most significant architectural details, the building, and its capacity, about the complex system of services created to accommodate a large number of spectators, and how they were divided according to their social class.

Visit the first floor of the building, and walk along the corridor that houses the educational section, equipped with explanatory panels and reconstructive models. Admire the grandeur and observe from above the reconstructed portion of the arena, where all the shows of the Amphitheater took place. 

The tour ends in the place where the emperor's box was located, which housed his family and his guests of honor.
