Overview
This underground Colosseum and ancient Rome tour provides a great way for first-time visitors to orient themselves. Skip the line as you explore the Colosseum’s arena and maze of subterranean chambers, only open to a limited number of visitors each day. Then, see other top attractions including the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, and your small group size means plenty of time for questions.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at a designated spot in central Rome and head to some of ancient Rome's most iconic landmarks and bypass long lines with your skip-the-line ticket. Navigate a maze of chambers beneath the Colosseum and learn about their macabre function before you ascend to the arena level to see where battles between fierce animals and gladiators were fought, stepping over original flooring and peering between gaps. Also, tick off Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum on a walking tour, where you’re free to stay and continue exploring independently.
