Stop At:  
The Colosseum is one of the most impressive ancient structures in the world, Rome’s architectural masterwork but it also represents the genius and cruelty of the Romans. Let our guides bring to life the atmosphere of the battles that went on at the Colosseum as you explore the arena where they took place! The arena was the stage where gladiators fought for their lives and those condemned to death were fed to wild animals. Our meeting point is outside the metro station Colosseum. We will be holding a sign saying Republic Rome and we will personally escort you to the tour starting point. Please bare in mind that the Colosseum metro stop has two exits, you need to take the one that is on the same level of the Colosseum, not the one that’s one floor up. As soon as you come out of the exit you will see a green kiosk (newsagent’s), we will be there waiting for you, holding the Republic Rome sign.
