You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
This tour will include several flights of stairs to arrive at the very top of the Colosseum on the Fifth Level and some walking on uneven terrain.
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.
With views this good, you'll wonder why these areas were saved for the Roman Plebeian class. Now, it's time for your personal guide to reveal some Colosseum secrets and legends.
After visiting the third level, ascend even higher to the fourth. Access to upper levels is perfectly safe, but we do recommend comfortable shoes for the hike.
Take the final climb to the fifth tier. This is the highest point of the Colosseum. However, the climb is worth well 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.
Walk the streets of the political, economical and religious center of the powerful Roman Empire.
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 the church San Lorenzo in Miranda was built into it. This why the building constitutes one of the best-preserved ancient temples in Rome.
Towering above all other buildings in the area, it's impossible to miss the ruins of this incredible cathedral.
Experience exclusive access to the restricted upper levels of the Roman Colosseum. Open for the first time in four decades, this restricted area of the Colosseum offers some of the best views in Rome. With its breathtaking views down into the Colosseum Underground, this private Rome tour is perfect for those who love taking photographs.
Q: Can my tour's start time change?
A: Yes, but not always. The system for making reservations is very complicated. Think of it like a back stage pass. We will definitely try to reach you by telephone or email if the tour's start time changes (at least seven days prior to the date of your tour).
Q: Can my tour be canceled?
A: We run all of our tours regardless of how many people are on them, but this tour can be canceled if the Colosseum's management decides to close the areas down. It's a 2000 year old structure - these things happen. We will offer you a full refund if this happens as well as some alternative options. We want to make you happy.
Q: What if it rains?
A: Rain happens, but our tour guides are waterproof! We'll run the tour rain or shine. Colosseum management will shut down access to the Underground and other restricted areas in some cases if they feel it is unsafe.
Q: I have trouble walking. Is this tour right for me?
If you have any doubts about your mobility, this may not be the tour for you. The steep, reconstructed staircase used to access the top levels of the Colosseum are difficult to navigate if you have limited mobility. As an alternative, have a look at the Private Colosseum and Roman Forum with Restricted Access tour.

They were able to answer a variety of questions from our group, while keeping us moving through the various elements of the tour to keep us on time.
The Roman Forum portion of our tour was very hot given the weather that day, and the Forum does not have a great deal of shade in the afternoon. I would suggest for those taking the afternoon tour, make sure you plan to be in the sun for a solid two hours - plenty of water, sunscreeen and perhaps even an umbrella to help keep the sun off of you...more
