Start your real experience to the Colosseum at dusk from our office. Join a short aperitif with some prosecco wine and take some beautiful wide angle and panoramic photos of the Colosseum and surrounding areas before the tour begins. After that, you can get inside one of the most visited monuments all over the world, beating the regular long lines. Explore the past on the Evening Underground Colosseum Tour and see the incredible wonder in its all its glory beat the heat of the day. During the days of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (known then as Flavian Amphitheatre) allowed more than 50,000 people to enjoy its finest spectacles. The exhibitions of exotic animals, executions of prisoners, recreations of battles and gladiator fights kept the Roman people entertained for years. The Colosseum remained active for over 500 years. The last recorded games in history were celebrated in the 6th century. Since the 6th century the Colosseum has suffered lootings, earthquakes and even bombings during World War Two. Demonstrating a great survival instinct, the Colosseum was used for decades as a storehouse, church, cemetery and even a castle for nobility.
