Full description

Visit the Colosseum and get ready to discover stories behind its construction, gladiator fights and its significance in Christianity from ancient Rome till today. A licensed guide will take you on a journey through the Colosseum's 2000-year history. Book this 1-hour tour and you will save valuable time by heading straight to the highlights. Designed as an introduction for first-time visitors, the small group tour will be an ideal way of visiting in the company of an entertaining guide. Your tour guide will lead you to some of the most important parts of the Colosseum, including the gladiator's arena floor. Get answers to any questions you may have on the way and discover some of the lesser-known facts about the area around it.

Skip-the-line will allow you to spend more time admiring the Flavian Amphitheatre and less time queuing. At the end of the tour, you will be free to stay on and continue exploring. With the same ticket, visit the other two sites, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, on your own.

Arnaldo was a tremendous tour guide. His English is good and he is incredibly knowledgeable abound the Colosseum, as well as so much more of Rome. He took his time on our tour and allowed us to go at my pace, answering every question I threw at him with articulate, intelligent answers. He made my tour of the Colosseum interesting and fun. I would contact him for any other tour I were to take in Rome.

We have a fabulous 1 1/2 hour tour round the Colosseum with Slob who also had the tickets for entry to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. He was most knowledgeable about the history. We were a small group of 5 people so we could hear and speak to him clearly. He did not let us down and we had a fabulous day. We would highly recommend you use him.

English guide who showed us the Colosseum in 75 minutes. Then free time to explore the exhibition on your own. The guide had a lot of information and also showed interesting facts with a tablet. Learned a lot about the history of the Colosseum and Rome. A small group is recommended.
