Walk in the footsteps of the gladiators on this unique tour of the Colosseum and its arena floor. Explore the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with an expert guide.
Discover unseen facets of the Colosseum on this exclusive skip-the-line tour with an expert guide. Access the arena floor through the gladiators’ gate and imagine what they would have experienced as they stepped out under the gaze of thousands of noisy spectators. Look down into the dungeons where they would have been preparing themselves beforehand and wild animals would have been kept.
Across the way in the Forum, the political, social and religious core of the city, find the remains of public buildings, temples, the sacred dwelling of the Vestal Virgins and much more. Your guide will enthrall you with stories of the political dramas that played out there and the daily lives of people who lived over 2000 years ago.
Last but not least will be the Palatine Hill, the supposed spot chosen by Romulus to found his new city. It then became the home of the rich and powerful during the Republic and the emperors during the Empire, and the impressive remains of some of their palaces are what is still visible to this day.
