Full description

The Arena's special Guided Tour will be the best skip-the-line ticket of the monument, taking you directly insider as the gladiators did. By avoiding many regular group excursions with our trained guides, you will immerse yourself in the Colosseum's 2000-year history.

As you stand where the gladiators and wild beasts fought, imagine the battle scenes. Then, from a higher vantage point, make your way up into the stands to explore the amphitheater with your guide. Your guide will bring the history of the Roman Empire's largest amphitheater to life for your group.

This was an excellent tour lead by our guide, Paolo who was punctual, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We were given a clear meeting point ahead of time and received a call / text to ensure we knew exactly where to find our host. We were brought in a small, not oversized group straight into the Colosseum avoiding any queues and given a fascinating and in-depth guide to each aspect of the Colosseum while having ample time to have a good look and take in the atmosphere without being rushed onwards. An excellent tour and I would highly recommend.
