Walk around the square and inside the arena where dangerous lions and strong gladiators once battled for the entertainment of the citizens of Rome.

Super friendly and helpful guide. Everything worked fine. The graphics are certainly no longer up-to-date. And yet after a few minutes you were completely immersed in the world. Interesting that there was once a huge fountain in front of the Colosseum. We didn't know until now. It would be great if there would also be VR from the Palatine and Roman Forum. Here in particular it would be extremely interesting to move in the world of yesteryear.

A great experience for us and our children. We did it before visiting the Colosseum. A super nice tour guide instructed us and explained something else. I recommend it, especially if you are traveling with children.
