What you can expect

Get exclusive access to areas of the Colosseum not available on a regular ticket: the Arena, Underground and the Upper Levels known as Belvedere (optional during booking). Step back in time and learn more about everyday life in Ancient Rome at the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

First, you skip the line to explore the world's most famous amphitheater with an official guide and journey back to the days of the Roman Empire at the monumental Colosseum.

Get access to areas not available to regular ticket holders, including the underground level where the wild animals were kept before they went into battle with the gladiators. Enter the arena through the Porta Libitinaria and go up to the first level. Complete your experience by going further up to the upper levels, the 4th and 5th tiers known as Belvedere (if you choose to book this option) for a spectacular view of the arena and surrounding area.

Learn about the innovative techniques the engineers used to build the monument and hear how it has survived for hundreds of years. Be amazed as history is brought to life as you discuss the political and social reasons for the games and events.

Enjoy a short break and then enter the Roman Forum to get a better appreciation about what everyday life was like in Ancient Rome. Get breathtaking views over the Colosseum and Circus Maximus from Palatine Hill and stay as long as you wish at the end of your official tour.
