You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
You will be on your feet for the majority of this tour. We navigate an archeological site so expect uneven terrain and steep stairs.
Walk the streets of the political, economical and religious center of Ancient Rome on a guided tour of the Roman Forum.
A building where many of the world's most important decisions at the time were made - imagine if these walls could speak.
The ancient temple was saved from destruction, because the later church San Lorenzo in Miranda was built into it: This why this building constitutes one of the best-preserved ancient temples of Rome.
Begin your tour outside the Colosseum and take a few minutes to admire the incredible exterior of the the ancient stadium. Then, skip the line and enter the Colosseum.
Restricted Area! Venture into the Colosseum Underground where slaves, gladiators and wild animals were held before fighting to the death on the Arena floor that loomed above them.
Restricted Area! Retrace the last steps of a gladiator as you walk out onto the Arena Floor. Imagine the intense atmosphere of 60,000 roaring spectators surrounding you.
Seen both underground and from the Arena Floor, your guide will show you the reconstructions of mechanisms used to pull deadly wild animals onto the Arena Floor during gladiator battles.
Restricted Area! With views this good, you'll wonder why these areas were restricted for the Roman plebeian class. Now, it's time for our guide to reveal some Colosseum secrets and legends.
Restricted Area! After visiting the third level, ascend higher to the fourth. Access to upper levels is perfectly safe, but we do recommend comfortable shoes to take the hike.
Restricted Area! Take the final climb to the fifth tier. This is the highest point in the Colosseum and the climb is worth it for the views out over the Eternal City.
We like to call this section, the "nosebleed" section. Just like in a modern stadium, the less you spend the farther away you are from the action.
Q: Is it possible The Roman Guy will change this tour time?
A: It's possible. This tour is highly coveted and the reservations are hard to get. A common industry challenge for tour operators, times often change by a few hours. However, we do our best to update you at least seven days before your tour. That being said, we are limited by a very low supply of Colosseum tickets. If necessary, The Roman Guy will call the number you've provided or email and inform you about any changes. If you're nervous about keeping up with time changes, we recommend you book a different Colosseum Tour. If you want to make sure your Colosseum tour is going to run as scheduled, email us or call +1 888 290 5595.
Q: Can my tour be canceled or moved to a different day?
A: Yes. Obtaining reservations for this tour is a complicated process, but we are the best at doing it! However, sometimes we don't always secure reservations for every day. While this is rare, it does happen. We will let you know at least seven days prior to your tour if this is the case for you. You'd be entitled to 100% refund and we would do our best to move you to another one of our incredible restricted access tours. We have you covered.
Q: What happens if it rains?
A: Rain happens, but the show must go on. We'll run our Colosseum Tours rain or shine. If rainfall is extremely heavy, Colosseum management will sometimes close the restricted areas for safety reasons. In this case, we will offer a €18 refund to compensate you for not accessing these restricted areas. Don't worry though, we'll still take you inside the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Roman Forum.
Q: I have issues walking. Is this tour for me?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a Colosseum private tour.
