Witness the incredible history of this 2,000 year old structure up close on a private skip the line Colosseum tour. Go back in time on an authentic gladiator experience as you enter the reconstructed Arena Floor through the “Gate of Death”. Plus, take a guided stroll through the Roman Forum and climb Palantine Hill. This 3-hour includes the following:

  • - A private skip the line Colosseum Arena Floor tour
  • - A guided tour of the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill
  • - A private and professional English-speaking guide
  • - A custom group size

Colosseum Arena Floor Tickets

Travel back in time as you trace thefootsteps 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.

Private Colosseum and Roman Forum Tour

We had an amazing tour with Raeffe leading us. She was so knowledgeable and a great story teller! She brought the past to life for us. It was my favorite part of the trip. I would definitely book with this company again and even request Raeffe, if possible. Thank you.

Best Stadium Tour Ever

We go in stadium tours often and the tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Forum was the best ever. Fabi’s knowledge of everything related to the Colosseum and the other ancient sites is unrivaled. We get like we were back in time experiencing everything at the precise moments in history. Thank you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to meet?

Behind the green souvenir kiosk in front of the “Colosseo” metro stop - 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. We like sandals and dress shoes too, but recommends comfortable sneakers for this experience! Also bring sunscreen & water bottle in summer months. If you want to remain in the Forum after your tour, bringing a light snack is recommended.

Yes, if you have doubts about your mobility, taking a private tour is your best bet.

What happens if it rains?

Rain happens, but the show must go on. We run our Colosseum tours rain or shine. If rainfall is extremely heavy the Colosseum management sometimes closes the restricted areas for safety reasons.

Is there any chance my tour might be canceled or moved to a different day?

Yes. Obtaining reservations for this tour is a complicated process, but we are the best at doing it. However, we don't always get every day. While this is rare, it happens.

We have you covered.
