Overview

Avoid the large, standard tour group and immerse yourself with the Colosseum's 2,000-year history with this intimate semi-private tour.

Inside the Colosseum you'll walk the same steps as gladiators, emperors, and doomed prisoners. Bloodthirsty Romans gathered in this ancient stadium of death to watch gladiator fights and executions, and your guide will explain every gory detail. You'll spend 90 minutes exploring the Colosseum's 1st and 2nd levels, while also allowing free time for photos and self-exploration.

Following the Colosseum, we'll make our way to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill (Cesar's Palace). Surrounded by picturesque ruins we'll visit ancient palaces, temples, tombs, the House of the Vestal Virgins, and the Senate house before finishing the tour at the tomb of Julius Cesare.

This 3-hour tour concludes in the Roman Forum, which is conveniently located in modern Rome's city center; leaving easy access to local restaurants, cafes, shopping, and public transportation.
