Skip the Line Colosseum Tickets
The lines to enter the Colosseum can be hours long. Also, many Colosseum tours themselves can be hours long. With this experience, you don’t have to spend your time doing either.
Skip the line with your guide and enter the grandiose Roman amphitheater that served as the main entertainment center in ancient Rome. As you cruise past the crowds, you’ll feel like a Patrician entering the Colosseum to watch the gladiator games.
First and Second Tiers
Enter the Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, and gaze out into the vast arena. As you experience the interior, your guide will describe who built the Colosseum and what life was like during the time of construction.
Your guide will walk you through what the Colosseum was used for and detail the bloody battles that defined this entertainment space. Not only was the Colosseum used for gladiator matches, it was also a hub for animals and even mock naval battles. Before exiting the Colosseum, get a chance to snap a few classic Colosseum pictures!
Optional Addition: Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
Please note: A visit to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill is not included in the price of this tour.
Looking to visit the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill as well? Consider our Complete Colosseum Tour with Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. The Colosseum visit on this tour remains the same, but adds a visit to Rome’s historic city center and Palatine Hill to your itinerary.

Highlight of our time in Rome!
Best Tour ever! Allessandra was a wonderful, engaging, informative, and entertaining guide! We learned so much and she made the ruins come to life in such a short amount of time! Great fun...all 4 of us agreed this was a highlight of our time in Rome.
Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of our guide(Elena?) but she was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and presented interesting facts throughout. She was able to answer many questions about roman history and did a great job of finding us shade on a very hot afternoon. I was a little worried about the group size but it didn’t feel too large once we got started and the head sets worked very well.
Had a blast and learned a lot
This was the second of eight tours we took with The Roman Guy while in Italy and France. Had a blast and learned a lot. Loretta was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where to meet?
Green Souvenir Kiosk in front of the Colosseo metro stop - located just outside the lower level. 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.
Q: Does my tour still run if it rains?
A: Rain happens, but our tour guides are waterproof! We'll run the tour rain or shine.
Q: What if I'm not sure about my mobility?
A: if you're set on taking a small group tour, this is the one to take. It's short and to the point, designed for people who don't want to stand or walk around for very long. If you want to play it on the safe side though, we strongly suggest you take a Private Colosseum Tour.
