Colosseum Arena Floor Tickets

Travel back in time as you trace the footsteps of gladiators. Walk under a great archway known as the "Porta Libitina" or "Gate of Death" and out onto the reconstructed Arena Floor, where the savage games once took place. The Gate of Death earned its name because only the dead passed through this exit after losing their lives in battle. Facing death at the hands of ferocious human or animal opponents, gladiators fought surrounded by 60,000 screaming spectators. Most Colosseum visitors aren’t allowed on the Arena Floor, but this private tour includes privileged access.

A Guided Roman Forum Tour

The Roman Guy’s Colosseum Arena Floor tour includes a guided tour of Roman Forum. Walk past the long line of people and skip the line to go directly inside with your private guide. Full of incredible ruins, the Roman Forum is the former site of downtown ancient Rome. Visit some of the most famous Roman Forum buildings, including the Temple of Julius Caesar, Arch of Titus, the Temple of Vesta and the Roman Senate House. Relive ancient history as you walk down the same roads taken by famous Roman Emperors and philosophers.

Climb Palatine Hill

Learn about the larger-than-life characters Mark Antony, Cleopatra, Julius Caesar and more. And last but not least, sandwiched between the Roman Forum and the Circus Maximus, is the Palatine Hill. This awe-inspiring area of towering pine trees, majestic ruins and unparalleled views was where Romulus was said to have founded Rome in 753 B.C. This is also where Rome's emperors lived in opulent luxury. Once one of ancient Rome’s most exclusive neighborhoods, the Palatine Hill is still an awe-inspiring place. With views of Circus Maximus and the Forum, don’t miss this incredible photo opportunity.
