Overview
Save time and see more of the Colosseum and Forum on this extended, small-group tour. You’ll get skip-the-line access to the perpetually crowded Colosseum, and beyond to the building’s third, fourth, and reopened fifth tiers—areas not always open to the public. The fifth tier especially, called Belvedere, is a treat with great photo opps of the Roman skyline and Palatine Hill. The tour finishes with guided visits to Via Sacra, the Forum, and Palatine Hill
What to Expect

Your tour of Ancient Rome will begin with skip the line access directly into the Colosseum where your guide will take you around the general access areas, telling stories of heroic Gladiators fighting for survival and the ravenous crowds of plebeians and extravagant nobility cheering on their glory.

Walk around the third and fourth tier of the Colosseum, an area not open to the general public, but watch your step! In a unique approach to crowd control the steps of the Colosseum where designed uneven to slow down the hordes of people and make them pay attention to where they walked. Then you’ll go where few have ever ventured, the Colosseum Belvedere. Meaning "Beautiful View" the Colosseum Belvedere is precisely that! You’ll be treated to a 360˚ view of the Colosseum from above and stunning views of the Roman skyline.

From the Colosseum, you'll walk down the length of the Via Sacra where everyday life ran its course towards the Roman Forum. Visit the house of the Vestal Virgins; the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated and hear stories of grand processions and festivals.

End at the Beginning on Palatine Hill. It was here that Romulus is fabled to have founded Rome and where Emperors and nobility built their splendid villas- the ruins of which you’ll be exploring. Take in the beautiful view of Rome complete with the iconic Colosseum and stunning gardens for that perfect vacation photo op.

Worth it - Colosseum skip the line

Worth it. We got to skip the lines and this was worth it because it was so crowded. Josie, our tour guide, did an excellent job of providing the history of and various theories behind the colosseum.
