You'll enjoy a full tour from your guide — an archaeology and art history expert — of all the sights of Rome's ancient city. Enjoy skip-the-line access to the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum; where you'll step out on the Arena Floor like a gladiator, and rise to the heights of the 3rd floor. Your expert guide will tell you everything you need to know about the history of the Roman Forum, rich in evocative ruins — and the final resting place of Julius Caesar following his assassination. Climb the Palatine Hill for a stunning view of the Forum and Rome. Finally, enjoy a full Colosseum tour. Go from the Colosseum Arena to the Underground, where men and beasts prepared for the games. Then, ascend to the dizzy heights of the Colosseums' 3rd floor, for the best possible view of this astonishing amphitheater.

I knew that I wanted to see the Colosseum and Roman Forum, but wasn’t sure if I should go on my own or with a guide. Usually I’m a big fan of finding my own path, so whenever I do book a guided tour, the guide should really add value. And wow, I’m sooo happy I went with Roma Experience. After my tour I’m now convinced this is THE BEST way to see the Colosseum and Roman Forum.

- The best parts of the Colosseum can only be accessed with a guide (arena floor, catacombs, upper rings). And those are really the best parts!
- You get to skip the line (which was loooong, even in February!)
- It’s not so busy in the restricted areas (which you can only see with a guide) so you’ll be able to make pictures without other tourists being in your photo
- You get lots of inside information
- Besides the Colosseum, you’ll visit the Roman Forum (excavations of the old city centre). Our guide Vincenzo really made history come alive here. Otherwise we might’ve seen these excavations as just a bunch of stones (really pretty and really old stones, but still just stones if you don’t know the background story)
- Our group was just 6 people, which was awesome (note that inside the Colosseum, you’ll be with a slightly bigger group though).
- I’m a big history geek but my boyfriend is not at all. But we were both equally happy with the tour and my boyfriend commented afterwards that even without him having any pre-existing knowledge of Roman history, he was able to get a clear understanding of everything that happened here because Vincenzo explained it so well

Highly recommended!

We had Elisa for our tour of only 4 people! The small group size was a great addition. She was extremely informative, funny and engaging.

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting and excellent tour.

This was a great tour of the Colosseum and the Ancient City. The day before the tour we received a reminder email with all the details of the tour and meeting time/place. I thought this was a nice touch. The group was easy to find the morning of the tour. The group was not too large. Our guide Maria was very friendly, enthusiastic and her english was easy to understand. The headsets used by Roma Experience are comfortable and the sound comes through clear. A tour with another company a couple of days later had me wishing I'd booked that tour with Roma because of Maria and the headsets. The Colosseum itself is amazing and the tour is kept in a small group going to areas where the main crowd was not allowed access. We had a very enjoyable time.

Overall, this was a great experience and worth the price. I chose this tour because a friend had recommended doing a guided tour of both the Forum and the Colosseum, and said he'd wished he had done the "underground" tour at the Colosseum.

We had two guides - the first with a smaller group to go to Palatine Hill and the Forum. At the Colosseum we merged with a 2nd group, and had a different guide. Our first guide was great - very knowledgeable, answered questions, kept a decent pace. The second guide was not as good - she clearly knew the "script" but wasn't able to answer questions as easily. Merging into a larger group was also a bit of a downer, as part of the reason we had picked Roma Experience was because they touted smaller groups. Additionally, we spend a chunk of time up the upper level of the Colosseum with the 2nd guide pointing out & talking about various sites we had already seen with the first guide (such as the Arch of Titus & the Temple of Venus.) Coordination between the two tours (or somehow keeping us with one guide the whole time) would have made this a better experience. The Hypogeum was interesting but brief - not entirely sure that was worth the extra cost, although it was neat to imagine walking in as a gladiator, and to see the differences in construction for the areas that were not in the public eye.

In addition to the things mentioned above, the main downside to this tour was that we had to be on a schedule to get to the Colosseum. This meant that we sort of rushed through the Forum to get there on time, and we really didn't look around the Forum at all. We discussed the buildings from a viewpoint on Palatine Hill, but the only things we saw up close were the Arch of Titus and the Temple of Venus. Because we'd already "punched our ticket" for the day, we could not go back to the Forum to look around more after the tour was over - we would have had to pay for entry again (and wait in the line... defeating the whole "skip the line" part). Unfortunately, as a consumer, you have no control over this (according to our guide anyway) - they are given a timeslot for the Colosseum and they build the tour around that. So some groups get Colosseum first and then go to the Forum (where they have more time to look around) while others get Forum first and then Colosseum. Thus, our tour was really Palatine Hill, skirt the fringes of Ancient City, Colosseum Underground).

If I were to do this again, I would probably purchase two separate tours - one for the Colosseum, and one for the Forum, so that I'd have plenty of time to see everything. (although, to be honest, after having done the grand Colosseum tour, I probably won't go back...)

Dear Doug F, We are pleased to read ou company was recommended to you by a personal friend! It can happen that on the Colosseum Tour you get to join two different guides, one provided internally by the Colosseum and the other who will join you for the tour of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. You are absolutely right when it comes to the order of the tour. Tickets are offered at different times and depending on the time we are able to secure tickets we will construct the rest of the tour as the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill do not have a timed entrance. Depending on the order of the tour you can decide to stay in the last area visited during your guided tour, so in your case in the Colosseum. Whilst visiting the limited access area the small group will temporarily submerge with another group (which is inevitable) as the Colosseum decides how many tickets to sell per timeslot. We are glad to see you've enjoyed participating in the Colosseum All in One Tour and felt you had a well rounded experience that won't require a second visit. Thank you very much for sharing your feedback with us!

Amazing Tour. The tour guide was well prepared, had great pictures to show us what it use to look like, and made sure we were taken care of. Would take us to the best location to get pictures and took pictures of use together. She didn't rush the tour and made it memorable for us. Booked tours through several companies while i was over there and this by far was the best tour of them all. Would highly recommend them if you are booking a guided tour in Rome. Will be the one i use the next time I am back.

We did the tour with a small group. The meeting point was easy to find. The guide gave us a lot of information and adjusted the tour to our wishes and interests. The tour within the Colosseum was also very interesting. We were with a group of 12 people (instead of 24) so there was enough possibility to ask questions. When i’ll go back to Rome, I will for sure book a tour with Roma Experience again!

Dear 758lotteb, Our Colosseum All in One tour with its Skip the Line Entry and visitation to the Limited Access Areas usually guarantees an unforgetable experience by itself. Eventhough our tour hosts max. 12 people per guide outside of the Colosseum and max. 24 people per guide inside of the Colosseum (due to its regulations) it can happen that less people eventually show up at the meetingpoint. We are pleased to read your positive remarks and will strive to maintain the same high standard in the future. We look forward to showing you more of our beautiful City, this is assuming you passed by the trevi fountain during your stay and guaranteed your return.

We took two Roma Experience Tours while traveling through Italy: the All in One Tour as well as the Vatican Experience — Small-Group Tour. Both were fabulous! The tour guides were full of knowledge. We skipped all the lines and saw everything as promised and more. We would definitely recommend and book with this company again!

Must say that I was impressed by this vestige of the antique Rome... and by our guide, who was also an expert !

We only had 2 days in Rome and the Colosseum was on everyone's list (family-grandparents, parents, kids 8, 11, 14). This was the perfect tour to see it all at one time and to get info along the way. It was interesting to all of us and very appropriate. We were unable to do the Belvedere, but were told ahead of time and offered a refund, which we appreciated. The communication about where to meet and what to expect were very thorough and it was great to be able to listen to the expert in the Colosseum and have our own guide for the rest. Would definitely go with this company again and recommend to others of all ages.

Dear Jennifer C, I hope you and your family have had an amazing time in Rome, and we would like to thank you for choosing our company. Holidays with the family are truely special and we are greatful we got to show you around the Colosseum Underground/Arena, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with our Colosseum All in One Tour. The top 2 tiers of the Colosseum are temporarily closed for maintenance, and we felt it is more than fair to give people the opportunity to make a well informed decision whether they wish to proceed with the tour being offered a partial refund or cancel. We are happy to see you appreciated our gesture, and truly hope you will consider Roma Experience for your future visits!
