Tour Description

Feel like a Rockstar with our exclusive ‘access all areas’ backstage pass to Rome’s most majestic monument. Journey to the depths of the Colosseum underground during this truly a once in a lifetime experience that will, without a doubt, be the highlight of your trip – yes we’re that confident you’ll love it! You will then journey over to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum for a tour of the ruins of the Imperial Palaces and centre of Ancient Roman life.

This exclusive tour will begin outside the Colosseum where our fun and fabulous guide will be waiting to meet you. Standing in the heart of the Ancient City you will have a brief introduction to the Colosseum before journeying back to ancient times, accessing areas which are off-limits to those with standard tickets. With an expert guide you will walk through the eerily quiet maze of underground chambers where the gladiators were held alongside wild animals as they all waited together for battle. You will see the innovative machinery that was built to deliver the gladiators and animals directly onto the arena floor above. Your guide will then take you through the first and second tiers of the Colosseum where you can see the arena from the point of view of the spectator.

After having some free time to enjoy the Colosseum you will then begin the second part of this amazing tour which journeys through the heart of Ancient Roman civic and political life – the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Get an in depth experience of Rome’s ancient empire as you walk past the Arch of Titus and the Temple of Julius Caesar.
