Experience the immensity of ancient Rome’s most iconic symbol on this Express Colosseum tour with privileged direct access to the Arena Floor through the recently opened ‘Gladiator’s Entrance’, without the lines, crowding and long security checks that characterize the other entrances!
Save your previous vacation time with an express tour of the Colosseum
Skip general entrance lines and enter through the privileged Gladiator Gate
See the stadium through the eyes of gladiators, emperors, and spectators
Choose to stay inside the stadium or continue to the Roman Forum ruins
What to Expect
Choose a start time to suit your schedule and then meet your guide near the Colosseo metro stop. Together, pass the long lines outside the ancient stadium and enter via the special Gladiator Gate. Step straight out into the arena, just as the gladiators did millennia ago, and gaze up at the ancient tiers where thousands of Romans gathered to watch the gory games. As you listen to stories of the battles, walk from the arena floor to the spot where the emperors’ box once stood and then up to the second level to see the stadium from a spectator’s view. Opt to stay behind and explore the Colosseum more at your own pace or follow your guide to the nearby Roman Forum. Skip-the-line entry to the forum is included; plus, get the lowdown on its key ruins and a stroll up Palatine Hill.
