A guided tour is the best way to visit the Colosseum in Rome. You will be able to experience the history of the Flavian Amphitheater and the legends associated with it accompanied by expert and certified guides. An opportunity for which it is worth spending a few euros more than the standard entrance ticket.
Furthermore, this solution lawfully allows you to take advantage of the priority entrance, or the skip-the-line ticket, unlike the offers of tourist promoters who are always present in front of the Colosseum gates.
Below you will find the tours that include the standard Colosseum route . They do not include underground access or arena access, but still offer the experience of being guided through the history of this wonderful monument. These tours last between one and two hours and are the ideal solution for those who prefer short tours and take advantage of the remaining time in the day to visit other monuments or areas of the city.
By choosing a tour with access to the undergrounds (hypogea) you will have the opportunity to visit a complex system of tunnels that provided access to different points of the arena. Here there were lifts equipped with hydraulic mechanisms that allowed the beasts to be hoisted onto the stage.
Warning: Tours with access to the dungeons sell out quickly, especially during the high season.
Trampling the arena allows us to retrace the footsteps of the gladiators, imagining the steps of the forum crowded with spectators. Games and fights between gladiators were practiced here, which for over 400 years satisfied and entertained the Romans.
These tours allow you to organize a full day dedicated to culture, offering the possibility, in addition to the Colosseum, to visit the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel.
