Overview
Many tourists visit the Colosseum, but few see the monument’s underground chambers. Get an in-depth look of one of the New7Wonders of the World on this Rome sightseeing tour. Descend to chambers used to keep gladiators and wild animals before you embark on a whistle-stop tour of Rome highlights including Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum, and Via Sacra. Plus, you’ll receive personalized attention in a small group limited to 12 people.
What to Expect
Your tour begins outside of the Colosseum, where you’ll meet your guide at the start time selected during booking.

Head straight inside the Colosseum with your pre-booked admission ticket and descend to the underground chambers formerly used to keep wild animals and gladiators captive. Hear commentary from your guide about the site's history, and because your group is limited to 12 people, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

After sufficient exploration, you’ll embark on a sightseeing tour of Rome highlights. Enjoy panoramic views from the Roman Forum; stroll down Via Sacra; and discover the history behind the Arch of Septimius Severus, Palatine Hill, and many other fascinating sights.

Your informative tour concludes back in front of the Colosseum.

As a previous reviewer mentioned, only about 1.5 hours of the total 3.5 hours was spent inside the Colosseum. Yes, the guides were very informative, and it is cool to access areas other tours don't normally see, but we felt the whole tour was about...More
