    Meet your guide near the Colosseum to begin your exploration of Ancient Roman history. Visit the Colosseum, including skip-the-line entry.

Walk around the first tiers and reach the arena to learn about the trapdoors and all the mechanisms used to animate the games. Your guide will keep you entertained with stories of sea-battles, the cages where lions were kept before the games started, the rooms in which gladiators were waiting before they reached the arena, the executions, and the excitement of the spectators attending the most spectacular, fantastic, and expensive games in human history. After exploring the first level you will reach the second tiers to enjoy the best inside and outside view of the Colosseum!

This small group 1 hour tour of the colosseum was just what we needed. The lady who did our tour guide was fab - she was funny and clearly a history lover. My fiancé and I are not massive history lovers, however, we really enjoyed this brief, insightful tour round the colosseum.

We loved this tour! Our tour guide was genuinely excited about the site and we could tell that she loved telling us about it. She knew so many facts and was very engaging. Whilst there was a long line all the way around the colosseum, we got to completely skip it altogether!
