Overview
Instead of spending hours in line at the Colosseum, one of Rome’s busiest sights, bypass crowds with this skip-the-line tour that leaves you time to explore the city’s other popular landmarks. Enjoy special, behind-the-scenes access many visitors don’t get to as your guide takes you deep into the dungeons of the Colosseum and onto the arena floor to see where gladiators used to battle. Hear illuminating commentary along the way.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the tour office in Via del Colosseo, 24. From here, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of some of the most well-preserved parts of the Colosseum and have plenty of time to take photographs while waiting for your tour to start.

Learn how the Romans built such a colossal monument while skipping the long lines to step inside the largest amphitheater ever built. Your guide will recount stories of epic battles between gladiators and wild beasts while giving you behind-the-scenes access to Colosseum sights.

This tour offers exclusive access to the underground areas where you'll explore the tunnels and rooms where gladiators prepared for battle before stepping out onto the arena floor where the mighty gladiators once stood.

Underground tours of Rome’s Colosseum are among the most popular tours in Rome and often fill up, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Not organized

Excellent tour!

We found the tour office easily and they provided toilets. A fantastic tour of the Colosseum on all levels. We can't stop talking about it, also perfect for my children aged 9 & 11.

Great tour!

Was a great tour, even more than I thought we would be doing. Toured down below and then all the way up to the top. Had been to the Colosseum twice before and was only in the area a regular ticket gets you into. This...More

Our visit to the Colosseum was wonderful! The guy that walked us from the agency to the Colosseum was nice. And then we met Lucia, our guide. She was amazing. Very very very informed, detailed, precise and shared with us visual material that complemented her...More

The tour we booked was just for the Colosseum. We have been on that included the other sights. Lots of options to choose from Idelaig.
