Meet your guide and start your journey through the centuries. Enjoy this Private Tour of the Colosseum to explore the ancient Roman history.

Your informative guide will make your experience funny and full of good memories. Your personal guide will tell you about the techniques of construction invented by the Romans and the high level of technology achieved by Roman engineers to built the Colosseum.  Inside the Colosseum, you will walk around the first tiers and reach the arena to learn about the trapdoors and all the mechanisms used to animate the games. Your guide will keep you entertained with stories of sea-battles, the cages where lions were kept before the games started, the rooms in which gladiators were waiting before they reached the arena, the executions, and the excitement of the spectators attending the most spectacular, fantastic, and expensive games in human history.  After exploring the first level you will reach the second tiers to enjoy the best inside and outside view of the Colosseum.  During the tour your tour guide will be at your disposal to answer all of your questions and curiosities.
