Full description

Skip the ticket line and explore the magnificent Colosseum on this guided tour. Discover its history and learn about life in ancient Rome.

Standing as a symbol of beauty and grandeur for 2000 years, the Colosseum is also known as the Flavian Amphitheater and was the largest amphitheater in the Roman Empire.

Your guide will transport you back in time through the first and second levels of the Colosseum using your skip-the-line ticket. Learn about the imperial history, gladiator combat, animal contests, and executions in front of 50,000 spectators.

It was quite fast, but we didn’t have a lot of time so that’s exactly what we were looking for. Valentina did a great job of keeping things moving and packing as much information in as she could while still being enthusiastic and throwing in lots of jokes.
