Full description
Start your tour of Rome's most iconic monument with skip-the-line access. Travel through the gladiator's entrance, to walk on the arena floor, where the gladiators once fought their deadly battles. Dive into the history of the Colosseum, as your experienced guide describes the incredible crowds, and thunder of the games held within the walls. Wander beneath the arena floor to the dungeons and witness where the gladiator's prepared for their battles. See where caged animals were kept before they were lifted to fight in the arena. Carry on to Palatine Hill and enjoy breathtaking views of the Colosseum. Listen as your guide shares the legend of Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers, that according to the legend, were responsible for the birth of Rome. Lastly, finish your tour at the Roman Forum, an ancient marketplace. Visit the home to the ruins of several important religious and government buildings. Marvel at the incredible ruins and architectural fragments.
