This tour was the highlight of the entire trip for me and my husband: the emotion to enter in the Colosseum empty, understanding the grandiosity of the Roman Empire!

I had tours in different nations and this was by far the best one I had in years of travels, absolutely unforgettable! I can't talk high enough of our superb guide, Elisa, a trained archeologist: she really added a truly insight to this tour and she has got a flawless english (the best english I've found in Italy, without italian accent).

I took several tours and I was impressed about the way she is delivering the information, she is passionate and happy to share her incredible knowledge. She covered lots of material and answered every question, being engaging for all the evening. I will recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the Colosseum and I will not esitate to book with Rome Experience again.

A big thank to Elisa for the spectacular tour, I absolutely loved it, she is the best guide you can have in Rome!

Dear British_traveller71, Your review brightened our day as much as Elisa did for you in the darkness of the Colosseum! Visiting the Colosseum at Night is an amazing opportunity to enjoy this monument in privacy with a max of 24 others and hear the tales of this impeccable monument whilst darkness surrounds these mighty walls. Allowing you to enter into the Underground and Arena liturally allows you to walk the footsteps of the men who gave their lives whilst listnening to their legends. Reviews like yours make us beam with pride, and more appreciate of the amazing team of guides we get to work with on a daily basis. I will be sure Elisa gets informed of the amazing job she's done, thank you so much for sharing your experience having joined our Colosseum Under the Moon Tour!

Having seen the Colosseum by day last year with a friend, I decided to take my 17 year old son at night. There were no crowds like there are in the daytime. The experience is much more intimate. The weather was perfect and our guide did a great job. The finishing touch on the tour was a short film from a gladiator’s perspective on the night before a fight, which we viewed right on the fighting floor. Highly recommend.

Dear Aimless1234, We are very glad you decided to have a second look at the Colosseum at night-time and share it with someone you love. Being in the Colosseum in the dark is such an overwhelming experience as it conveys the atmosphere of ancient Rome and the life of our ancestors even more intensely than during the day. Should you plan to spend some more days in Rome and see the rest of its countless wonders, please take our company into consideration!

We were quite exhausted having flown in that morning and toured the Vatican in the afternoon but we soon realized the experience was going to keep us fully engaged. The meet up was straightforward and our guides were both excellent (a person does the city tour leading up to the Colosseum and then then another takes over once you are inside). I believe Elisa was the name of our city tour guide and she did a great job of providing the interesting back stories connected to the layers of Rome we were seeing comparing it to Lasagna :). Once inside, we were treated to the details of the Colosseum itself which are enhanced I think by it being at night. Somehow it's easier to hear the echoes of the past at night, especially when the crowds are also MUCH smaller than other day tours we've taken. I agree with other reviewers that the little video stops were a little hokey but it didn't diminish the experience. Highly recommend!

Dear louisvilleduo, Lovely to hear that regardless of the jetlag and already having visited the Vatican state Elise managed to keep you on your toes during our Colosseum Underground at night tour! After hours a strange sense of calmness surrounds the ancient walls of the Colosseum, which can be interpeted as a little creepy! Elisa (who is currently present in our office, and right next to me) would like to personally thank you for your kind words, and hope's she will get the chance to introduce you to more of our ancient city upon return!

Our family of six traveled to Rome together for the first time this week. Several of us had been to Rome already so we were looking for different ways to enjoy the top sites. All of us, including those who had already been to the Colosseum thoroughly enjoyed our tour. There were 24 in our group so the headphones were a perfect solution to hearing everything our guide had to say. Our guide was young and energetic and very informative with pictures available on her IPad for us to view. She did a great job of managing the pacing and questions in our group. The walk to the Colosseum included a stop in the piazza on Capitoline Hill and a view of the forum with information on the history of these sites. That was great and included info none of us had heard before even after several trips and tours in Rome. The “archeologist” guide in the colosseum was also clearly interested in and knowledgeable about her subject. Our children, all in their 20s really had a great time and so did we. The only minor let-down were the several slightly weird short movies presented by the park. The translation was off and they really added nothing to the tour - would have liked more info instead on the Colosseum history through the ages, but that is not the fault of this tour company - it’s a Colosseum feature.

We had the wonderful and knowledgeable Elisa , an archaeologist, as our guide for the first part of the tour which is around Piazza Venezia and the Roman Forum. As well as providing us with history she brought it to life with pictures on her iPad which showed what some of the ruins would have looked like originally. The tour of the colosseum at night was good but unfortunately the guide who took us round , not Elisa, who came with us but had to hand over to the colosseum guide , had a very heavy accent so it made understanding him a little tricky. Despite this I would reccomend this tour as it's so quiet and atmospheric in the colosseum when only small groups with guides are present.

Dear Rose, Thank you for sharing your feedback on our Colosseum Under the Moon Tour! Visiting at night surely creates a unique athmosphere that leaves a lasting impression. Sounds like our guide Elisa did a great job bringing the enternal city to light under the light of the moon. The guides inside the limited access areas are provided by the Colosseum and we have to obide by their rules. We hope that in the future we will be able to have our guides continue their tours inside the limited access area! Thank you once again for taking the time for sharing your feedback, we hope you to see you return in the future.

The tour started with a short walk through the city guided by Fernando, our well informed guide. It was an interesting walk to the Colosseum. Inside the Colosseum we got the chance to see this historical monument on a different way. Amazing how it is lit in the moon light.
I would definitely recommand this tour. Be sure you are dressed properly, it can be cold & windy at night.

I would highly recommend this tour. Personally I felt the Coliseum at night is more atmospheric than during the day. An added plus is it is much cooler than through the day, and there are not hundreds of people. We met our tour guide Ariana near the Piazza Venezia and walked via Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum to the Coliseum. On the way she pointed out lots of places of interest and certainly knew her history. Unfortunately once at the Coliseum, Ariana had to leave us, as the Coliseum uses their own guides for the rest of the tour.
Walking out onto the arena floor was spine tingling, and viewing an empty Coliseum was an added bonus. We then ventured underground, and there were surprises around every corner. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour which in total lasted about two hours.

Dear Liz M, First of all thank you for writing this review about our Colosseum At Night Tour - it is indeed a very special tour to take, especially in the summer, so that you can avoid the heat and the daily crowds! We will let our guide Arianna know how much you enjoyed her guidance on the first part of the tour and we really hope to have you again on one of our Tours next time you travel to Italy!

Our instructions to meet with guide were 15 mins before tour was to start, meeting at a bar.... I went in the bar and asked and no staff knew anything about it. We saw a man hanging about who eventually came over to us. I asked him how we would get to the colosseum and he said walk! What it failed to tell us on the on the booking was that there was a lot of walking (not just the colosseum) it was an hours extra walking so if someone walked with a stick they would have struggled.... I think more information should be given. Our guide was very informative and funny but there were times we were rushed. He kept telling us we had to get to colosseum at 9.30 almost panicking. In the colosseum we changed guides and again the lady we had was very informative. Amazing building and great at that time as it’s hot in july.
