Overview
The Colosseum is one of the busiest sights in Rome so instead of spending hours in line you’ll go straight to the front of the entrance line with this skip-the-line tour leaving you more time to explore the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Follow in the footsteps of gladiators as your guide takes you deep into into the dungeons of the Colosseum and then out onto the Arena floor in this official Colosseum Underground Tour.
What to Expect
Meet your English speaking guide at the tour office in Via del Colosseo, 24. 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.  

You'll learn how the Roman’s 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 Colloseum 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 Colloseum are among the most popular tours in Rome and often fill up, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Cash Grab - unsatisfied :(

My partner and I were sold a 2 hr colosseum tour for 89 euro. As this was one of the most expensive tours we were expecting to see the best of what the colosseum has to offer... Unfortunately the tour ran for approximately 50 minutes...More

Terrible tour, would be better of with general admission and headset

We arrived at the meeting point and waited 45 minutes to then go to the colosseum . We then were introduced to a new guide (employed by the colosseum) who took us around. Tour all up lasted about 50 minutes, no where near two hours....More

yes, the ticket did include access to other sites but we did not go. It seemed that the ticket provided access but not additional tour guides - just on your own. So I would clarify that in advance.

Thank you, Hannes. I'm sorry you had to deal with this unprofessionalism. I appreciate your candor as it's likely saved me some frustrations dealing with this same from them. I'll take my business elsewhere! :)
