You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
This tour will include climbing large steps and walking on uneven terrain. Expect to be on your feet for the duration of the tour.
Walk out onto the reconstructed Colosseum Arena Floor in the heart of the Colosseum through the “Gate of Death”.
Visit the epicenter of the ancient Roman Empire - the Roman Forum.
As you walk on the same roads once used by emperors, visit sights that include Julius Caesar's Temple and the Arch of Titus.
Learn how a group of women was responsible for keeping a flame eternally lit in their sacred temple.
Visit the statues of the Vestal Virgins that stand in the garden of the temple, and learn why these women were so highly respected in ancient Roman society.
This is the biggest triumphal arch in Rome. At 21 meters high, it celebrates Emperor Constantine's victory over Maxentius and reminds us of the Emperor who legalized Christianity in Rome.
The Senate House was the place where the most important decisions in Ancient Rome were made.
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.
Towering above all other buildings in the area, it is impossible to miss the ruins of this incredible cathedral.
Visit this Arch of Titus, one of the earliest carved reliefs of the Menorah. Learn about the Jewish Rebellion against the Romans in 70AD.
This guided Roman Colosseum and Forum tour not only includes skip the line tickets, but you'll also use a different entrance from members of the general public. Go back in time on an authentic gladiator experience as you enter the reconstructed Arena Floor through the “Death Gate”. While our bestselling tour includes access to the restricted Arena Floor, it does not include the Colosseum underground and third ring. If you are looking for one of our Rome tours with access to the Colosseum Underground, we have you covered! This tour lasts 2.5 hours and includes the following:
Avoid the crowds as you walk out onto the coolest restricted area of the Colosseum – the reconstructed Arena Floor. Travel back in time as you trace the footsteps of gladiators. Facing death at the hands of a human or animal opponents, gladiators fought surrounded by 60,000 screaming spectators. Visit the opening to the reconstructed trap door and let your imagination go wild, as your guide describes the types of wild animals that also once contributed to the Colosseum's popularity and significance in ancient Roman society.
Get your Cameras ready! The Arena Floor is the best place in the Colosseum for photo opportunities. Our guided tour includes plenty of time to take pictures of you acting like a victorious gladiator to show your family and friends back home. And while you pose, members of the general public will look down at your tour group and wonder “How did they get there?”. This is because the Arena Floor is not accessible to regular Colosseum ticket holders.
After the Arena Floor, go on a journey to the Colosseum's first and second levels. See where Emperors sat and learn the rules of the gladiatorial games for both competitors and spectators. Learn why the ancient amphitheater was named the Colosseum and more. After spending a total of 1.5 hours inside of the Colosseum, begin your guided Roman Forum tour.
This Colosseum Arena Floor tour includes Roman Forum tickets and a guided ancient Rome tour of the ruins inside. All our professional guides are trained as both Colosseum and Roman Forum tour guides. This area, also referred to as the "Ancient City", is a Roman archaeological site that was once the location of downtown Ancient Rome. Visit some of the most famous Roman Forum buildings, including the Temple of Julius Caesar, Arch of Titus, the Roman Senate House and more. Relive ancient history as you walk down the same roads taken by famous Roman Emperors and philosophers.
When your Colosseum Arena Floor with Roman Forum tour concludes, you have free reign to wander around on your own. Climb the Palatine Hill and take in the views over Circus Maximus, relax in the Farnese Gardens, or simply perch on an ancient piece of marble and take in the beautiful surroundings. By the end of the tour, leave the Colosseum and forum with a camera full of incredible pictures of the Colosseum and a mind full of knowledge about life in ancient Roman.

We do our best to make alternate Arena Floor arrangements, but we cannot guarantee a substitute date.

Q: What if the Arena Floor is Closed?
A: Sometimes the Colosseum closing down access to restricted areas with very little notice. This could be due to rain or some sort of repair going on.

We were pleased that we didn't have to wait long to get inside the Colosseum, it was a very easy and stress free process, which is why we booked the tour. We also appreciated having access to the Arena Floor, it gave us such perspective of the history of the Colosseum. Faby did an amazing job explaining the history..very thorough and answered all of our questions. She used a lot of visual things to explain as well as point out areas of importance on the tour. Originally we were going to go on our own, but I am so glad we booked this tour to learn the significance of what we were looking at. This tour also included the Forum which was super informative. We really enjoyed walking around the grounds and enjoyed the information Faby shared. At the end of the tour we had time to explore Palatine Hill on our own and it was well worth the view of the entire city! I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to truly appreciate the history of the Colosseum!..more
