Itinerary: from the undergrounds of the Colosseum and the arena to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Live the experience of a complete tour of the Colosseum Archaeological Park.

1. Underground of the Colosseum

The tour begins with the underground of the Colosseum. To access it you need a special ticket which is included in the tour. The undergrounds were used during the representations on the arena to manage the passage of fighters and animals, with the help of hatches and hoists by means of a complex system of winches.

2. Arena of the Colosseum

The second stop on the tour is the Colosseum arena. If at the time of the Romans the arena covered the entire floor of the amphitheater, today a walkable portion has been recreated. From here you can live the experience of being in the center of the amphitheater, surrounded by the stands from which the spectators enjoyed the fighting shows.

3. Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Together with your guide you will move to the Roman Forum, which is the archaeological site that was once the center of the political, economic and religious life of Ancient Rome. The Palatine Hill, where your tour will end, on the other hand, represents a complex of places of worship (temple of Apollo Palatine, temple of the Magna Mater, the Elagabalium) and aristocratic domus, from the Domus Augustea to the domus Tiberiana.

Instructions
