Frequently Asked Questions
Where to meet?
Behind the green souvenir kiosk in front of the “Colosseo” metro stop. The stop is located just outside the lower level entrance/exit. A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.
What to bring?
Archaeological sites are normally paved with rocky terrain so wear comfortable sneakers. Bring Sunscreen and a water bottle for hot summer months. If you plan on staying in the Roman Forum, bring a snack.
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.

Our tour of the Colosseum Floor and Roman Forum was great! Our private guide was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining.
Our tour guides were outstanding - Josephine (“Juicy”) and Flaminia were both extremly knowledgeable about the elements and history of each of the tours. 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.
Loved the private tour aspect!
Such a great detail in any tour- being able to customize my tour group size was great!
